The Daniel Drake Medal is the highest recognition the College of Medicine can bestow on its former students, faculty, and residents or current faculty. It is awarded to living individuals who have been associated with the College of Medicine at present
or in the past. Nominees are evaluated on the basis of outstanding scholarly achievements in biomedical science as evidenced by major significant contributions to medical research and/or a distinguished career as a clinician-teacher. Generally, two
awards are given annually.

The committee also will be considering those who have been nominated in the past who have not received the award. If you will be nominating someone who has been previously nominated, please submit an updated nomination letter.
Nominations are being solicited from members of the College of Medicine faculty, alumni, emeriti, past Daniel Drake medalists, and former associates of the College through Friday, December 1, 2023. Shortly after the close of nominations, there will be a review of all nominees received by the Selection Committee. After consideration of the nominees, the Committee will recommend several candidates to the Dean, who makes the final decision. Medal recipients will be notified by the Dean and will receive their medals during the annual Daniel Drake event.
