To say that dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging may be the understatement of the year. Yet despite COVID-19, our faculty and staff are continuing to publish impactful papers, engage with their communities, transform medical education, practice extraordinary medicine, and change people’s lives.
In this post, we want to highlight our division members who have been honored with local, regional, and national awards over the last several months. This is just a snapshot of the excellence you can find within the UNMC Division of Infectious Diseases, but rather than list all of the accolades, we wanted to SHOW you!
Our Division Chief, Dr. Mark Rupp said “The recent recognition and awards received by the UNMC ID Division is truly remarkable. Not only was the Division recognized for heroic efforts surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, but while we were all working overtime on COVID, we also received accolades for our accomplishments in teaching, patient care, and research – a real testament to the dedication and passion of the ID faculty, APPs, fellows, and staff. I am incredibly proud of the ID Division and our commitment to excellence in all phases of our mission – delivering compassionate patient care, educating the next generation of healthcare providers, pushing the boundaries of our knowledge, and providing valuable service to our community and our profession”.
We are very proud of the work that our UNMC ID family has been doing over the last year and they deserve all of the awards and recognition. Congratulations to everyone, and we look forward to seeing what we can accomplish in 2021!
