Stephen Bartlett, MD, the Peter G. Angelos Distinguished Professor and chair of the Department of Surgery at the School of Medicine and surgeon-in-chief and senior vice president at the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS), was recognized with the University System of Maryland Board of Regents 2014 Faculty Award.

Dr. Bartlett was recognized in the scholarship/research/creative activity category for blazing the trail for revolutionary transplant procedures. Under Dr. Bartlett, the Division of Transplantation has grown into one of the largest, busiest, and most comprehensive transplant programs in the world.

Dr. Bartlett’s pioneering work has dramatically improved access to viable organs, for instance, reducing the waiting time for an African-American patient to receive a kidney transplant at UMMC from the national average of 1,335 days to 681 days.

Dr. Bartlett is one of four faculty members of the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) to win the award, which commends distinguished performance within the 12 institutions that comprise the University System of Maryland (USM).

The award winners from UMB, the founding campus of the USM, also come from the School of Pharmacy and the School of Social Work.

  • Bruce Anderson, PharmD, DABAT, was named the regents' public service winner for his work as director of the School of Pharmacy's Maryland Poison Center (MPC).
  • Megan Meyer, PhD, associate professor and associate dean of academic affairs at the School of Social Work, earned the regents' teaching excellence award.
  • Jill Morgan, PharmD, BCPS, an associate professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science at the School of Pharmacy and its former associate dean for student affairs, won the regents' award in mentoring.

Nominations were gathered and rated by UMB's Faculty Senate before being submitted to the USM.
