The Johns Hopkins Medicine Alumni Association
Samuel P. Asper Award for Achievement in Advancing International Medical Education

The Asper Award was established in honor of the vision of the late Samuel P. Asper, M.D. '40. A renowned Hopkins educator and physician, he served as Dean of the American University of Beirut School of Medicine in the mid-to-late 1970s. Dr. Asper believed that the Hopkins-trained physicians who are dedicated to fostering excellent medical care and education in a foreign country are continuing the outreach effort of Dr. William Osler, who traveled to China to assist in establishing Peking Medical Union College, and deserve recognition for their efforts. The Asper Award is presented once every two years during the Biennial Meeting of The Johns Hopkins Medical & Surgical Association to a member of the Association who has had a significant impact on the health and education of those in foreign countries.
