WWAMI Pro Recognition Program

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.

Individuals recognized will be notified during the next recognition cycle, and will receive a pin to wear or display. Notification to the individual will include information from this form, but will not include the nominating student's name. If additional information is needed, the student may be contacted. Only current University of Washington medical students may submit a WWAMI Pro recognition.

Visit the WWAMI Pro Recognition website to submit a recognition.
