Physicians recognized for global engagement

The University of Minnesota in November awarded Phillip Peterson, M.D., and Paul Quie, M.D., codirectors of the International Medical Education and Research Program, its 2008 Award for Global Engagement.

The award recognizes University faculty and staff for outstanding contributions to global education and international programs.

“In their commitment to knowledge both scientific and cultural that transcends borders, these two men are inspirational colleagues and mentors to all of us in the Medical School,” Dean Deborah Powell, M.D., remarked at the award ceremony.

Last May, Peterson also received an honorary medical degree from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden in recognition of the collaboration he initiated between the institute and the University of Minnesota resulting in joint symposia, graduate education opportunities, and student exchanges related to inflammation and infection.
