Awardees at the April 2023 awards banquet.

The Office of Medical Alumni Affairs is now accepting nominations for the 2024 Distinguished Medical Awards Program. Each year, we celebrate outstanding alumni, faculty, and community members whose contributions bring esteem to the UNC School of Medicine and better the health of the people of North Carolina and beyond.

Submitting a nomination is easy. A letter of nomination is requested, no more than 500 words, outlining 3-5 accomplishments that make the individual worthy of this recognition. After submission, MAA staff will likely reach out to request additional material to complete the nomination, typically a curriculum vitae and a letter of support. Nominations may be submitted at

Nominations are sought for three award categories: Distinguished Medical Alumni Award, Distinguished Faculty Award, and Early Career Achievement Award. Full award descriptions and criteria can be found on the alumni affairs website.

The deadline for all nominations is Friday, November 3, 2023. All winners will be invited to a banquet celebrating them in spring 2024.
