The Education Unit would like to highlight the following teaching awards
Clinical Teaching Awards
Dr Shahrukh Mallik
Dr Wallace Brownlee
For the third year voting was held for the Djamshidian-Chinthapalli award for outstanding contribution to teaching (for bedside teaching for MSc/Diploma students) and the joint winners of the award was Dr Wallace Brownlee and Dr Shahrukh Mallik with an honourable mention for Dr James Gratwicke who came second. We would like to congratulate Dr Wallace Brownlee and Dr Shahrukh Mallik on the award of Best Bedside Teacher of the Year 2013/14.
The winner for Clinical Tutor of the year went to Dr Salman Haider (eligibility was based on clinical sessions, Master Classes, and Case Presentation sessions), with an honourable mention to Dr James Gratwicke who came second. We would like to pass on our congratulations to Dr Salman Haider and to thank everyone who contributed to teaching this year.
Clinical Neuroscience Dr Tony Pullen Lecturer of the Year Award
For the second year the Education Unit asked all MSc
Clinical Neuroscience students to vote for their lecturer of the year,
in our attempt to recognise and reward our outstanding lecturers.
I am pleased to announce that Dr Ed Wild has been awarded the Dr Tony Pullen Lecturer of the Year Award. Students cited Dr Wild as an engaging and inspiring speaker.
Dr Wild is the second recipient of the Dr Tony Pullen Lecturer of the Year Award (the award is so named in recognition for the dedication that Dr Pullen showed during his time at Queen Square and in particular for his tireless support of teaching and pastoral care for students enrolled on the MSc in Clinical Neuroscience).
Joint second place goes to Professor Geraint Rees and Professor Nick Fox.
Honourable mentions are made to Dr Sofia Eriksson, Mr Ludvic Zrinzo, Professor Nick Wood, Dr Mark Edwards, Dr Paul Johns, Dr Katie Sidle, and Dr Helene Plun-Favreau who all polled votes.
