Outstanding Alumni Awards

The Outstanding Alumni Awards recognize and celebrate McGill Dental Medicine students and graduates for their exceptional contributions to the Faculty’s development and the dental profession more broadly.

In addition to the annual Outstanding Alumni Award, two new awards were added in 2024:

Requirements for each nomination include a biographical summary, a minimum of two letters of recommendation, and supporting documents. On the form, the nominator should explain how the nominee is making a positive impact on a range of areas related to the Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences and the dental profession, including but not limited to:

  • fundraising efforts in support of the Faculty;
  • volunteerism;
  • committee work;
  • fostering a sense of belonging;
  • Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) initiatives.

Nominees must be involved in some form of philanthropic support of the Faculty. Along with being honored for their work, the recipient will receive an award bearing their name.

Nominations can be made by filling out the online form for each award.
