Class of 2016 - Award Nominations by Staff
Award nominations are now being taken for School of Medicine students graduating in the Class of 2016. Nominations are due by March 18, 2016 and awards will be presented at commencement on May 7, 2016.
Staff members in the Office of Student Affairs and Admissions are able to nominate up to four students for the Merck Award. Select your nominees for the award from the list of graduating seniors. You may give a reason for each of your nominations, but this is not required. Each year, the Merck Publishing Group offers the Merck Manual Award to outstanding medical students. The qualifications for the award are at the discretion of the School of Medicine. At UNC, the award is given to graduating students based on contributions to the medical school community.
