The WWAMI Pro recognition program honors professionalism throughout our medical school community by capturing moments in time when someone has gone above and beyond in providing a respectful and supportive learning environment. Medical students are encouraged to recognize role models and teachers in their midst. Recognition can be directed toward any contributor to a student’s learning environment, including attending physicians, residents, interns, other physicians, pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and staff, such as front office staff, administrators clerks, custodial staff and security.

Honorees receive a commendation letter from Paul Ramsey, M.D., CEO of UW Medicine and Dean, UW School of Medicine, Suzanne Allen, M.D., Vice Dean for Academic, Rural and Regional Affairs, UW School of Medicine, and the Committee for Continuous Professionalism Improvement (CPI), and a distinctive and unique pin commemorating the award.
