UTMB Top Doc Award
Recognition of community-based educators who are "Teachers of Distinction"
UTMB School of Medicine faculty, staff, community-based course committees, and Area Health Education Center (AHEC) representatives made their nominations for Top Doc Award recipients from a pool of more than 400 active student preceptors. The Top Doc committee made the final selections based on multiple criteria, including exemplary student evaluations, time and commitment to community-based education, quality of the educational environment, and participation in faculty development and community service activities.
The Teacher of Distinction Awards began in 1999 as a means to recognize the contributions of community-based physicians who have unselfishly given their time and effort for the education of the next generation of health care professionals. UTMB extends its deepest appreciation to these role models who, in providing quality and compassionate care to their patients, have made a lasting impact on the lives of their students.
