Description:

Awarded for bedside teaching. All faculty are eligible, including full- and part-time University and clinical adjunct appointments. Between 6 and 8 nominees are selected by the Director of Clinical Education and the chief residents based on informal feedback as well as the previous year's faculty evaluation forms. The residents (postgraduate clinical trainees in our training program) are given a ballot each fall and rank their top four selections in order. They may also write in any additional nominations that they wish to suggest. Results are tabulated and the award made accordingly.
