Faculty of Medicine 25th Anniversary Staff Awards
The FoM 25th Anniversary Awards aim to recognise individual staff, teams and activities that have significantly contributed to our research, education, community and culture over the last quarter century.
Nominees and Award recipients
Congratulations to all current and former staff members who were nominated for these awards.
This celebratory awards process was launched for our jubilee year to help us acknowledge the many important and diverse contributions made across the Faculty over the last 25 years, some of which may have gone unrecognised at the time.
Nominations could be made for current and former staff (including honorary staff) as appropriate.
Nominations were primarily anticipated from staff and former staff, but they could also be submitted by alumni, Faculty partners or students. The project was most importantly intended to offer a chance for our community to take some time to consider staff members or groups who they feel have done great things as part of the Faculty’s life that should be recognised and remembered. This was a one-off celebratory process to recognise and record our thanks to contributors over the years to our Faculty’s development.
In the autumn these nominations were brought together to share and celebrate these stories as part of our celebrations. The nominations were reviewed by three panels (one for each of the three category areas) with the aim of selecting around twenty-five awards from across the breadth of submissions to receive FoM 25th anniversary commemorative awards. The criteria for selection were focussed on
- the importance and/or distinctiveness of contributions and
- the beneficial effect the activity/nominee(s) have had on Faculty life and development
The panels also looked to celebrate open, supportive and inclusive ways of working as part of our panel discussions and decision-making, and sought to ensure we had a broad and holistic representation of 25 years of Faculty life and strength among our awards
All nominees were invited to a reception event hosted by the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Professor Jonathan Weber, in January 2023 to thank them for their contribution to the life of this Faculty. The commemorative award winners were announced during the event.
Thank you to all nominees, and to everyone who took time to think about and share with us the stories of staff present and past who should be recognised and thanked by the Faculty during our silver jubilee year.
