Overview

"Daniel Drake was not only the leading pioneer physician west of the Alleghenies, but also an indefatigable man of letters, a naturalist, philosopher, teacher, and humanist. He was the first author in the West and a member of the first faculty of the first medical school west of the Alleghenies.”  –Charles D. Aring, MD, Journal of the American Medical Association, October 18, 1985

 

In 1985, the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine celebrated the 200th anniversary of the birth of its founder, pioneering physician Daniel Drake. As part of that celebration, the college created a new award—the Daniel Drake Medal—to honor its distinguished living faculty and alumni.

 

Nominations for the Daniel Drake Medal are based on outstanding or unique contributions to medical education, scholarship or research. Considered the highest honor awarded by the college of medicine, the Daniel Drake Medals are awarded annually at the college’s Honors Day (graduation) ceremony in May.
