BIDMC and HMS Teaching Awards
Each June marks not only the end of an academic year for medical students and residents, but also a time to recognize individual faculty and housestaff for particularly noteworthy accomplishments as teachers and as care providers. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) holds a special place within the Harvard Medical School (HMS) community for its commitment to, and excellence in, medical education. This reputation is well supported by the number and diversity of HMS awards received by BIDMC faculty each year.
We are delighted to honor and congratulate the all recipients of year-end awards from Harvard Medical School and from individual departments within BIDMC.
S. Robert Stone Award for Excellence in Teaching
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), in conjunction with Harvard Medical School, bestows one very special teaching award each year. The S. Robert Stone Award for Excellence in Teaching is given in honor of the late past Board Chair of Beth Israel Hospital by his children. The award has been presented annually since 1981 to a member of the Harvard Faculty at BIDMC for outstanding achievement in the teaching of medical students and housestaff. Nominations for the award are received from those who know our faculty the best - our students, residents and fellows.
Please join us as we honor the 2009 S. Robert Stone Award for Excellence in Teaching Recipient
