Broadcast Announcement to All Faculty!


The BWPO is pleased to announce the opening of nominations for the 2019 Faculty Pillar Awards. Faculty members in academic medical centers serve in multiple capacities as mentors, innovators, collaborators, and community leaders. This award program was established in 2013 to recognize Brigham faculty for achievement in one, or more, of the five pillars of academic medicine:

  • Mentorship
  • Education
  • Research
  • Community Service
  • Diversity & Inclusion

The 2019 Faculty Pillar Award recipients will be announced in August, and we will recognize all awardees at the annual New Faculty Welcome Lunch and Awards Celebration on Friday, September 13th, 2019, as well as with a publicly displayed plaque outside the BWH gift shop.

Please consider nominating a colleague, mentor, and/or leader whose accomplishments merit recognition. Note, there are two awards for non-faculty members, including a Postdoctoral Leadership Award for research fellows at HMS as well as a Contribution to Faculty Development and Diversity Award, for any BWH/BWPO employee who had made significant achievement in supporting this pillar.

Award nominations can be submitted by all faculty or other Brigham employees and will be accepted Wednesday, June 6th through Friday, July 12th. 

Full 2019 award descriptions and the nomination form are available online:
