The University of Louisville House Staff Council has launched the inaugural Outstanding Resident Awards to recognize achievement among the medical house staff.
Nominations are accepted through March 31, and anyone in the university community is eligible to submit a nomination. Three awards will be presented:
- Resident of the Year Award: Presented to the resident who overall best embodies the mission of the university to provide excellent patient care, either directly or indirectly, advance his or her field through scholarly activity, educate other residents and students, and is an excellent example of professionalism.
- Resident with Outstanding Achievement in Scholarly Activity: Given to the resident who has achieved the most to further his or her field through scientific pursuit. Publications — both number and quality — as well as other scholarly activity such as presentations, quality improvement programs, grand rounds and others are considered.
- Resident with Outstanding Achievement in Community Engagement: Awarded to the resident who has best embodied the university mission of service to and engagement with the community, state, nation or world. A leadership role over part or all of a project, is essential.
Nominations are made online and must include the resident’s name and a 2-to-4-sentence description of the nominee’s qualifications for the award. All nominations will be anonymous. Winners will be selected by the House Staff Council and will be announced in May or June.
