The David M. Levine Excellence in Mentoring Award
All full- or part-time Faculty members with a primary appointment within the DOM are eligible for nomination. Nominations will be accepted from full- or part-time Faculty and post-doctoral Fellows (MD, MD-PhD, or PhD) within the DOM who were mentored by the nominee. Previous awardees are not eligible. One award is reserved for late assistant or early associate professors who display excellence in mentoring (even though the number of mentees and their scope of accomplishments might be less than more senior mentors). Please review the criteria for the award.
A complete, competitive packet includes:
- A 4-page primary nominating letter that addresses the award criteria. (If you have previously nominated this candidate, please update the letter and other materials as applicable.
- Four 2-page supporting letters from previous or current mentees. (The committee will not accept more than 4 supporting letters. If we receive more than 4, you will be asked to select the four you would like to be included in the nominating packet.)
- A complete list of current and former mentees. (This list can be included in the nominee’s CV, provided in this template, or submitted in your preferred format.)
- The nominee’s updated CV.
The deadline for David M. Levine in Excellence in Mentoring Awards nominations is Monday, March 11, 2013.
