Annual Awards

Jefferson celebrates excellence through its tradition of honoring talent worthy of special recognition. Each year our faculty, residents, and medical students participate in a process that determines the recipients of awards that memorialize outstanding contributions. Each year, the following eight awards are presented at our Graduation Celebration.

For Residents

The Laughlin Award: Sponsored by the Laughlin Family Foundation, this award honors outstanding residents in the psychiatric training programs of leading medical schools throughout the U.S. Jefferson presents the prestigious Laughlin Award to a graduating resident.

The Outpatient Resident Award: In recognition of exemplary work with outpatient residents, Jefferson presents the Outpatient Resident Award to a PGY-3 or PGY-4 class member.

The Inpatient Resident Award: Recognizing the best overall performance during the first two years of residency, Jefferson presents the Inpatient Resident Award to a PGY-2 class member.

The Resident Teaching Award: This award honors a resident teacher for outstanding contributions made to the education of medical students. In addition to educational sessions and events that residents design or participate in to teach students, student evaluations of resident teaching, compiled across all training years, are major determinants of the selectee.

The Daniel Lieberman Award: Jefferson confers the Daniel Lieberman Award to the resident who has submitted the best original published or unpublished paper.
