Distinguished Service Teaching Awards through Washington University School of Medicine

To show their appreciation for exemplary service in medical education, Washington University School of Medicine students recently presented the school’s faculty and house staff with the Distinguished Service Teaching Awards.

The awards were for the 2014-15 academic year.

Initiated by students and implemented with support from the Office of Medical Student Education, the awards honor educators who have made significant contributions to the training of future physicians at Washington University.

Each year, students finishing their first, second and third year of studies select the course masters, lecturers, clerkship directors, attendings and residents who distinguished themselves most in the education of medical students. The awards allow medical students to express their appreciation for their teachers’ efforts, dedication and patience. This year, four of the faculty members to receive this honor are part of the Department of Anthropology.
