SKMC Alumni Achievement Award

Each year, the Executive Committee of the Sidney Kimmel Medical College Alumni Association requests nominations for the annual Alumni Achievement Award.

The Alumni Achievement Award was established in 1964 to recognize the outstanding and distinguished professional achievements of medical college alumni.  The Award is presented each year during Alumni Weekend.

All members of the Jefferson community are invited to participate in the Awards process by nominating exceptional alumni for consideration for this special honor.

To submit a nomination, please include a curriculum vitae, resume or biography, along with a letter of nomination explaining the nominee’s professional achievements, including significant scientific, academic, professional, entrepreneurial or industry contributions to medicine or science. 

Nominations should be submitted by email to Cristina Geso at alumni@jefferson.edu, or by mail or in person to the Office of Alumni Relations, Edison Building, 130 South 9th Street, 17th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

To be considered by the Awards Committee for the 2017 Alumni Achievement Award, nomination materials must be received no later than midnight on Friday, March 24, 2017.
