Founders Alumni Award – Established 1992

The Founders Alumni Award is named for the founders of Georgetown University School of Medicine and is conferred upon a maximum of four alumni from the Medical School. Doctors Noble Young, Flodoardo Howard, Charles Lieberman, and Johnson Elliott approached President James Ryder, S.J. and requested the establishment of a medical department under the auspices of Georgetown College. In 1851, instruction officially began in the newly established department with Young, Howard, Elliot, and Lieberman as the first faculty appointments. Together, these four founding faculty provided the leadership and vision to sustain the fragile enterprise of the Medical Department throughout its early years. The award is conferred upon those alumni leaders whose efforts and dedication to the School of Medicine have been truly remarkable.
