 Vote for Your Favorite Faculty Members in the Class of 2023 Awards – Deadline April 4

Each year the graduating class honors faculty members from the basic and clinical science for their excellence in teaching and recognizes other faculty and staff for their contributions. Earlier this year the Class of 2023 nominated potential recipients, and this is the final ballot based on your nominations. Please vote by April 4 for those who have positively impacted your medical school journey. 
The individuals receiving the most votes will be honored by the Class of 2023 at the May 7th Awards Celebration (3:00 pm). Also, this event will feature awards from IUSM departments to members of the Class of 2023 and the military commissioning ceremony.
