The Office of Academic Affairs will work with faculty members to prepare applications for the approval of the University Provost.
Please review the two forms below before you start preparing your proposal!
All proposals are to be submitted electronically to Jeffrey M. Lyness, MD, Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, either as a Word Document or electronically converted to a pdf (using “print to PDF” on a mac, or Adobe on Windows). Please do not simply scan your printed materials to a pdf, as doing so makes it impossible to select/copy text from the pdf.

To celebrate the importance of faculty serving as mentors for more junior colleagues, the Dean presents awards for mentoring at the SMD Convocation annually.
The call for nominations will go out each year in the spring.
Mentoring can be a powerful force in the personal and professional development of an individual. It benefits not only the mentee, but also the mentor and the University. To recognize mentoring as a valuable contribution to the University of Rochester, we will honor individuals who excel in this important endeavor. There are three awards, one for mentoring junior faculty, one for mentoring pre-doctoral trainees and post-doctoral trainees/fellows in basic science research, and one for mentoring residents, fellows, or other clinical trainees in clinical care or clinical research.
