Henry J. Kaiser Awards for Excellence in Teaching

Since 1969, the School of Medicine has recognized exceptional faculty instructors through these annual awards.

They bestow significant academic distinction, as well as a modest monetary award for the winners. The Henry J. Kaiser Awards for Excellence in Teaching are significant as only medical students and residents can nominate any faculty who teaches medical students and/or residents.
