Physician Recognition Project

We strive to recognize the unique talents and contributions of our faculty in clinical care, research, education, and service, with the goal of sharing that information with as many students, residents, fellows, faculty, staff, patients, visitors, prospective students and faculty and community members as possible. While six faculty members were selected for the pilot project, each of our faculty members deserve recognition for their achievements.
