With the Distinguished Alumnus Service Award, the UMMSAA seeks to recognize an alumnus with outstanding career achievements that embody one or more of the characteristics noted in the UMMS Mission, Values and Vision. These are: to advance the health and wellbeing of the people of the Commonwealth and/or the world through pioneering advances in education, research and health care delivery.  The UMMSAA supports and salutes such advancement in innovative and culturally sensitive clinical care, service, teaching and biomedical research.
