George Northup, D.O. Educator of the Year Award
The George W. Northup Educator of the Year Award was developed in honor of George Northup, D.O., who acted as a mentor to many osteopathic medical students throughout his career, often going above and beyond the call of duty to improve students' educational experiences.
Each year, local SOMA chapters nominate a professor, dean, or faculty member from their osteopathic medical school who exemplifies the qualities of Dr. Northup. Nominees in the past have provided countless additional hours to students during exam preparation, have opened their homes to students, volunteered in the community, and acted as a friend when needed.
