Recognizing Our Best Lecturers of 2014-2015!
Medicine is by nature a collaborative profession with an embedded ethos of helping and mentoring colleagues and students as they advance through training. While our careers and philosophy of medicine are shaped by interactions with hundreds and thousands of other practitioners, we may not be able to recognize and thank those who have had the most profound impact upon us.
We have reviewed the lectures and lecturers that have had the most views, streams, and downloads over the prior academic year and found which lecturers resonated with you the most and we are proud to announce our first group of Distinguished Faculty Educators!
