Current Members & Spotlights

Member Spotlights

We are pleased to spotlight members of the Academy for Excellence in Education and recognize their contributions to educational excellence in academic medicine. If you are a current member of the Academy and would like to be featured in a member spotlight, please email academy@virginia.edu.

Current Members

With the founding of the Academy for Excellence in Education in 2020, the SOM was pleased to inaugurate a new era of honoring educational excellence in the School of Medicine. Faculty and trainee members, along with the founding members — previous faculty inducted into the now-sunsetted Academy of Distinguished Educators — make up the whole of the membership. All members are inducted in Academy for a term of three years, at which time they may opt to renew their membership.
