Each year, the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Health Related Professions Alumni Board recognizes the Alumnus of the Year. The recipient is selected by a committee comprised of members of the SHRP Alumni Board. This award honors a UMMC School of Health Related Professions graduate who has made an outstanding contribution in the areas of leadership, service and achievement in their professional discipline while enhancing the image of the UMMC School of Health Related Professions.
Qualified nominees are those who have been alumni for fifteen or more years. Nominees may be those representing currently offered SHRP programs as well as those previously available (i.e. Dental Hygiene, Cytotechnology, etc.).
