Several Washington University School of Medicine faculty members were honored by the school earlier this week for their dedication, talent and contributions to the institution and the field of medicine.

Recipients of the Distinguished Faculty Awards were nominated by their peers to recognize achievements in clinical care, community service, research and teaching. They received the awards Feb. 12 at the annual Faculty Recognition Event, at the Eric P. Newman Education Center.

This year’s winners of the Samuel R. Goldstein Leadership Awards in Medical Student Education also received their awards at the event. The Goldstein awards recognize outstanding teaching and commitment to medical education. Recipients are selected by a committee of faculty and students and given final approval by Larry J.
