Continuous Service Award

Bonnie Peterson

Bonnie Peterson has been a dedicated UMD employee since 1997 and is currently serving in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health as a Program Associate. She works hard to be available and open to the 3rd and 4th year medical students as they register for their clinical rotations. Bonnie also acts as a “student affairs office” (even though we don’t have one on this campus) by providing a safe place for students in their first rotations in Duluth; she has opened her home to these students when student apartments were full.

She provides the Dean of the Medical School with last minute data information regarding Year 3 & 4 Programs and does it in a timely and efficient manner. Bonnie took the initiative to work closely with one of our physicians to co-author a paper for publication. She also took the initiative to collect data and put together a document proposing a change in the emergency medicine rotation from an elective to a required rotation.

She created “patient role-playing scenarios” and acted as “Mom” for one of the department’s grant initiatives (family connection videos). Bonnie thinks outside the box to solve student problems, she wholeheartedly supports departmental activities and genuinely cares for the department. She is a team player in every sense and has established excellent working relationships with co-workers and faculty in many Twin Cities Medical School departments as well as UMD Medical School administrators.

She is 200% dedicated to the job and for these reasons, we are proud to present Bonnie with an Outstanding Service award.
