The Faculty of Medicine would like your help recognizing our faculty and support staff members for their exemplary work, efforts, and for upholding the Faculty’s values (compassion, inclusion, diversity, integrity, professionalism, respect, social accountability, sustainability, transparency, and wellness).

Submit a Kudo to the Office of Marketing and Communications via email to [email protected] – it will take just a few moments. Please include:

  • A learner or staff or faculty member submits a Kudo. It might be lightly edited by MarCom.  

  • MarCom shares the Kudo with the Human Resources, Faculty Affairs, or Dean’s Offices (as applicable based on nominee) for their review. 

  • Once approved, MarCom will notify the nominator, who will be asked to notify the nominee(s) to ensure they are comfortable having a Kudo in MedFlash.  

  • If the Kudo is about a team and individuals are not named, the nominator will be asked to share the Kudo text with the team’s manager/supervisor to confirm accuracy of the text and to ask the manager to share the Kudos text with their team once it’s published.  

Kudos will be posted in the MedFlash newsletter. 

If you have questions, please contact the Office of Marketing and Communications at [email protected].
