Dr. Heather Emmerton-Coughlin and Dr. Dan Pepe have been awarded the 2014 Class of Meds '49 Award for excellence in teaching by residents.
Teaching is one of the many roles of residents; however, it is one that is often unrecognized and unsupported. Residents provide a substantial amount of the clinical teaching for medical students, often making the difference between a good learning experience and a poor one. In order to recognize and reward excellence in teaching by residents, the Class of Meds `49 has donated two (2) awards: one for a Junior Resident and one for a Senior Resident. These awards are nominated by clinical clerks who have had the opportunity to nominate one Junior and one Senior Resident annually.
