The event recognizes three outstading faculty members as "Masters" - one clinician, one scientist, and one educator as well as those who have been promoted, named to an endowed professorship, received tenure, or served as chair of a department, including newly named chairs.

This year's top honorees include Master Clinician Larry A. Chinitz, MD, the Alvin Benjamin and Kenneth Coyle, Sr. Family Professor of Medicine and Cardiac Electrophysiology; Master Educator Joseph D. Zuckerman, MD, Walter A.L. Thompson Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery; and Master Scientist Evgeny A. Nudler, PhD, Julie Anderson Professor of Biochemistry.
