Salute to Excellence is the annual School of Medicine reception that recognizes the contributions of all staff and faculty. At this year’s informal receptions, we will join together with the school's leadership to celebrate you and your colleagues for another year of hard work and dedication to the school's mission.  At the Parnassus event, Dean King will also present the 2017 Holly Smith Awards.

We know you are busy so feel free to drop in for a few minutes for an afternoon break.  Ben & Jerry's ice cream cones will be provided.

We will also celebrate this past year's School of Medicine internal award recipients!
