Debbie Krause, Department of Surgery coordinator, received the inaugural Dean’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the UofL School of Medicine Dean’s Appreciation Reception, Nov. 13. The Dean’s Lifetime Achievement Award was created by School of Medicine Dean Toni Ganzel, MD, as a special recognition for employees who have served the school with excellence for many years. Debbie has worked for the Department of Surgery for nearly 45 years. During her tenure, she has completed a variety of tasks in service to UofL with the greatest loyalty, professionalism, competence and grace.

“Debbie exemplifies the excellence we strive to achieve in the department. Throughout the course of her career, Debbie has always paid meticulous attention to detail and plans well in advance for every possible contingency. She is the consummate ambassador for the University, as she is our liaison with countless other institutions and leaders in American medicine and surgery,” said Kelly McMasters, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Department of Surgery. “She exudes warmth for our medical students and residents, as well as new and veteran faculty and co-workers. She remembers the names of their spouses and children, as well as special details about each and every one of them. For her role in coordinating our visiting lectureships and grand rounds programs, Debbie is the perfect host and continually receives letters of praise from visiting professors and their staff.”
