Carol and S. Sutton MD Outstanding Service Award 
The MSTP at Pittsburgh could not succeed without the dedicated efforts of its students to sustain and build the program. We are fortunate that students extend themselves beyond the considerable demands of their research, medical school and clinical commitments to make the MSTP one of the best in the country. The Carol and S. Sutton MD Outstanding Service Award recognizes that student who has stood out in the past year for extraordinary work in leading, planning and/or performing activities that have strengthened the program as a whole and benefited the student body. The recipient of this award is announced at the MSTP annual retreat.
