Masters comprise a small group of highly distinguished physicians selected from among Fellows, who have achieved recognition in medicine by exhibiting preeminence in practice or medical research, holding positions of high honor, or making significant contributions to medical science or the art of medicine. They are recommended by the Awards Committee for election to Mastership by the Board of Regents.

Dean of the UT College of Medicine, Henry G. Herrod, MD, commented, “This is a very prestigious award, and we are honored to have someone of Dr. Schaberg’s caliber serving the university.”
