2016 Scholar awards

The JACK’s Neonatology Scholar Awards identify faculty and peers who best exemplify the attributes of humanism and professionalism in medicine.

The American Board of Pediatrics defines professionalism as one who “aspires to altruism, accountability, excellence, duty, service, honor, integrity and respect for others.”

The scholars vote to recognize and honor one faculty mentor as well one undergraduate and medical student scholar identified by his/her peers for exemplifying the attributes of humanism and professionalism.
