Dean Emeritus Donald E. Wilson Endowed Scholarship Fund
The Dean Emeritus Donald E. Wilson Endowed Scholarship Fund was created by alumni, faculty, and friends of the University of Maryland School of Medicine to honor the legacy of Dr. Wilson and continue the School's enduring commitment to enhancing the diversity of the School's students and the medical profession. The Fund will help the recruitment of a bright, diverse student body and help ensure quality health care for all populations. It will provide financial assistance to one or more first year students at the School of Medicine.
Dr. Wilson served as Dean of the School of Medicine from 1991 to 2006. During his tenure, he was nationally recognized by the Association of American Medical Colleges as a leader and role model for increasing racial and ethnic diversity in academic medicine among physician leaders, faculty, staff, and students. Dr. Wilson was named Dean Emeritus upon his retirement as Dean.
In 2008, the Association of American Medical Colleges awarded the Abraham Flexner Award for Distinguished Service to Medical Education to Dr. Wilson for extraordinary individual contributions to medical schools and to the medical education community.
