Distinguished Alumni Award

The College of Medicine Alumni Association recognizes distinguished alumni who have demonstrated exceptional leadership in their careers at an awards ceremony held in conjunction with Reunion Weekend each spring.

The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes MD graduates of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine for achievements in the areas of basic research, education, clinical care, health service administration and public and/or civic duties.

Nominations for the following year’s alumni awards are accepted during the current year. To be eligible for consideration, completed nominations must submitted by December 14.
