Awards reception celebrates excellence in medical education

The Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry – Windsor Campus recently celebrated a decade of medical education and achievements in the community and honoured recipients of the school’s 2018 Awards of Excellence.

An affiliation agreement between the University of Windsor and Western University led to the opening of the Windsor Campus in September 2008. Since then, the program has expanded to include postgraduate residents who train in Windsor, the first stages of the development of a research program, an enhanced role in helping to improve healthcare delivery in the community, and a greater role in faculty affairs.

In July 2016, UWindsor and Western and Western University recommitted to an affiliation agreement for the operation of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry – Windsor Campus for another 10 years.

The Windsor Campus now has more than 150 students studying across four years of medical education.

At the March 19 awards reception, Alex Carson, an education assistant housed at Windsor Regional Hospital, received an Associate Dean’s Award; clinical medicine librarian Selinda Berg received an Educator’s Award.
