Med school instructor shares national teaching recognition

The recipient of a teaching award from the Canadian Association for Medical Education says she shares the achievement with her instructors in the University Teaching Certificate program offered by the Centre for Teaching and Learning.

“I wish to thank Michael Potter and Pierre Boulos for all the probing introspective questions and feedback,” says Anna Farias, anatomy learning specialist in the Windsor program of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry.

She completed the first level of the certificate program and is among the first group to start the second level.

Farias will receive the Certificate of Merit Award from the association April 21 at its conference in Quebec City.

“The aim of this award is to promote medical education in Canadian medical schools and to recognize and reward faculty’s commitment to medical education,” Lara Cooke, chair of the awards committee, said in a congratulatory letter to Farias. “Your colleagues determined that you were much deserving of this award.”
