Drs. Christina Marra and Lorrie Langdale have been given the 2018 UW Medicine Award for Excellence in Mentoring Women Faculty.

This award was established in 2003 by UW Medicine CEO Dr. Paul Ramsey, Assistant Dean for Faculty Development Christina Surawicz, and Dr. Emily Wong (director of the UW Center of Excellence in Women’s Health at the time). It recognized that UW School of Medicine faculty and trainees benefit significantly from having faculty mentors, and that UW Medicine’s success in the areas of education, clinical care and research derive from the immeasurable and critical contributions of faculty mentors.

Attributes of excellence in mentorship include a long-term commitment to mentoring and faculty development, wise counsel, and encouragement of mentees to develop autonomy as faculty members and independent scholars. The award also recognizes those who are proactive in creating the next generation of leaders and mentors.

The award is presented at the annual UW School of Medicine Dean’s mentoring lunch, at which awardees have a chance to discuss mentorship.
