The Department of Internal Medicine is creating a total of 15 early career endowment awards, three annually, by the close of FY2023. Each is valued at $250,000 and is named after a current or former faculty member to be held by the incumbent for one 5-year cycle, so as long as they do not hold another endowment. Awards are competitively assigned to junior faculty at the Assistant Professor level (any track) that are within 5 years of their terminal residency/fellowship/post-doctoral training.

A reception honoring the senior faculty who lent their names as well as the inaugural awardees will be on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at the Kelley Conference Room from 4:30-5:30pm.
