Alan D. Schmetzer Outstanding Faculty Award
Alan D. Schmetzer, M.D., was awarded the inaugural "Alan D. Schmetzer Outstanding Faculty Award" during the Department of Psychiatry May Faculty Recognition meeting on May 11, 2010. The award was established to annually honor the contributions of one faculty member in the Department of Psychiatry who has demonstrated outstanding effort, service, and/or achievement in one or more of the department's missions of research, clinical care, and education.
The award was named in honor of 30 years of dedicated service to the Department of Psychiatry by Dr. Alan D. Schmetzer. Future recipients, to be chosen by the Department of Psychiatry Chairperson, will have:
- Demonstrated extensive and exemplary effort to the departmental missions;
- Contributed to the development of other department faculty, particularly junior faculty, in a mentorship role;
- Assumed responsibilities far beyond standard expectations to support the chair and the department.
