The Social Medicine Paper Award was established in 1996. It was renamed the Alan W. Cross Social Medicine Paper Award in 2012 in honor of the late chair of the department. The award recognizes exceptional scholarship by students in social medicine. Such work, which may occur in Social and Health Systems courses or electives with department faculty, should epitomize the integration of social and clinical thinking, apply social science and humanities perspectives to the world of science, and exemplify creative efforts to convey or represent the experiences of patients, physicians, and others related to health, illness, or treatment. The winner is awarded a cash prize and a certificate.
