Alumni Award Nomination

Each year, through the Einstein Alumni Awards, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is proud to recognize distinguished alumni and faculty for their significant achievements and contributions to the advancement of medicine, biomedical science and medical education. These awards are the highest recognition given to alumni, and the recipients bring honor to the College of Medicine and serve as role models for all current and future Einstein students.

The Alumni Awards categories are:

More than 9,000 Einstein M.D., M.D.-Ph.D. and Ph.D. graduates serve the nation as leading physicians, medical educators and biomedical scientists. Since its inception in 1962, the Einstein Alumni Association has provided support and assistance to the College of Medicine and its students, with emphasis on scholarships and improving the quality of student life.

Students calling alumniAlumni are at the core of our Einstein community. In addition to being respected members of society, the Alumni Association supports and participates in programs that benefit current Einstein students. They continue the tradition of excellence in medicine and education by sponsoring ceremonies for first year students, including white coats, stethescopes, and scrubs. In that same way, alumni are always willing to mentor and network with students. In addition, alumni remain engaged to the College through various ways, including reunion celebrations, on-campus events, regional events, and communications such as Einstein Magazine and the Einstein Connection e-newsletter.

To learn about the many ways to remain engaged, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at
