The Faculty Awards Committee is pleased to announce this year’s recipients of Burrell’s Faculty Awards for Excellence, which acknowledge faculty who have demonstrated superior creativity and success in one of the defined areas.
This is the fourth cycle of awards in Burrell’s history in which up to three faculty members are recognized by their colleagues for their tireless efforts and outstanding achievements in supporting high-quality medical education and the college’s overall mission through research and scholarship, service, and teaching.
In a highly competitive nomination and review process, the Faculty Awards Committee selected:
- Dr. Kristin Gosselink as the recipient of the Excellence in Research and Scholarship Award
- Dr. Jon Jackson as the recipient of the Excellence in Service Award

Please join us in congratulating Drs. Gosselink, Jackson, and Oviedo! They will be recognized for their excellence by having their names engraved and placed on a perpetual plaque and will receive a $1,200 award. They will also serve on the Faculty Awards Committee for the next two award cycles to promote ongoing faculty recognition. The Committee also thanks and recognizes all award nominees and finalists for their notable contributions.
