Welcome to WISDM
Annual Professional Achievement Award
Nominations due: Monday, February 26, 2018
The WISDM Professional Achievement Award is presented annually by the Women in Science, Dentistry, and Medicine (WISDM) Faculty Organization, VCU School of Medicine, MCV Campus. This unique award was established in 1993 to acknowledge the special contributions and accomplishments of women faculty in the School of Medicine. The primary purpose of this award is to recognize a woman who is a role model and mentor, promoting the professional development of other women faculty. Nominees should demonstrate excellence in the following areas:
- Success as a mentor and role model for women faculty
- Professional excellence: accomplished in their primary area of practice (clinical, basic sciences, etc.)
- Leadership: university administrative duties and other leadership roles
- Teaching expertise
School of Medicine
Nominations are solicited annually from all School of Medicine faculty members and should include a letter from the primary nominator, a CV, and no more than five (5) support letters from supervisors, faculty, trainees, and/or students addressing the five areas of excellence. Previous nominees can be renominated with an updated CV and no more than five (5) support letters, which may include old and/or new letters, from supervisors, faculty, trainees, and/or students addressing the five areas of excellence. The letters should be addressed to Dr. Kimberly Sanford, WISDM President.
