Congratulations

The Texas A&M Health Science Center extends congratulations to the members of our faculty who will begin the 2012-13 Academic Year with a promotion in rank, newly granted tenure, or both.  Promotion and the awarding of tenure require rigorous reviews at Departmental, College and Health Science Center levels.  Professional advancement constitutes recognition of many years of excellent or exceptional performance in the areas of teaching, research and service to the College of Medicine.  The College could not meet its mission were it not for the time and effort of our dedicated colleagues.  Please take a moment to congratulate these exceptional faculty members.
