Awards and Recognition
The Academy administers several awards intended to honor, support and reward faculty and staff for their efforts on behalf of medical education.
The Boyden Award was established in 2004 to recognize a School of Medicine staff member who has shown exemplary service in support of medical education.
The Cooke Award was established in 2007 with funds awarded to Molly Cooke, MD upon her receipt of the AAMC's AOA Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Award. It is presented on Education day to the authors of the most outstanding curriculum development and research projects.
The Excellence in Teaching Awards were established in 2005. These are peer-nominated awards for UCSF teaching faculty, intended to highlight outstanding front-line teachers of medical students and residents at all UCSF teaching sites who might otherwise go unrecognized.
The Kim Award was established in 2002 by Edward Kim, MD, UCSF SOM alumnus, to promote the well-being, rejuvenation and work-life balance of an Academy member.
The Legacy Award was launched by the Academy in 2010. The recipient is selected annually by a UCSF School of Medicine reunion class to recognize a teacher who made a positive difference in their lives while they were in medical school--a difference that can still be felt today.
The Service Award is given for outstanding service to the Academy.
The Siu Award was created by Howard and Lettie Siu in honor of Richard Haber, MD, and presented in September, 2008 to two Academy members who best exemplify his passion for medicine and generosity of spirit.
