Events and Celebrations
School of Medicine Honors & Awards Ceremony
The OHSU School of Medicine is made up of outstanding faculty, staff and learners - and our annual events are a chance for us to celebrate their excellence and laud their accomplishments. As Interim Dean David Jacoby said at the 2022 SoM Honors & Awards Ceremony:
“Stories of challenge and triumph, mentorship and partnership, humility and perseverance are all around us in the school. At this wonderful ceremony, we have the opportunity to recognize members of our teaching faculty for their innovative curriculum, infectious enthusiasm and thoughtful guidance, and students for their outstanding contributions, scholarship and leadership. A theme running through all of their efforts - and those of so many others - is service, a value that is at the foundation of our profession."
