The M. Gwendie Camp Award for Educational Scholarship is awarded annually to a School of Medicine faculty member who becomes active in educational scholarship early in their UTMB career. The award celebrates the legacy of Dr. Gwendie Camp, Director of the Office of Educational Development (1994-2001) and founder of the Scholars in Education Program.
