This honor, which has been presented since 1970, recognizes alumni of IU School of Medicine who brought honor to the school by standing out professionally or performing extraordinary service to their alma mater. All IU School of Medicine graduates and trainees are eligible.
For almost a decade, the Alumni Association has picked a graduate who’s made a quick mark in medicine or in service to the School. A nominee must have graduated within the past 15 years to be eligible, as are those who did their training at IU School of Medicine.
The award has been presented for nearly three decades and singles out an educator who demonstrates a passion for educating students, collaborating with colleagues, pushing the boundaries of research, or providing outstanding medical care. Named after a past dean of the medical school and a former IUPUI chancellor, current or former faculty are eligible.
Named after George Sorrells, Jr., MD’62, this award is for distinguished service in community practice. To be eligible for the award, alumni must have graduated with a medical degree or trained at IU School of Medicine. To be considered, alumni may be in practice or retired.
