Congratulations to our 2018-2019 2nd Quarter Bedside Teaching Award winners, Dr. Susan Lambe (pictured) at UCSF Parnassus and Dr. Michelle Lin at ZSFG. At our Mission Bay campus, the semi-annual bedside teaching award is presented to Dr. Sonny Tat.

Dr. Hemal Kanzaria, Associate Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine, leads a multidisciplinary Social Medicine team from ZSFG and San Francisco Health Network (SFHN) that was awarded the prestigious statewide 2018 CAPH/SNI Quality Leaders Award for their work to meet social needs of ZSFG ED patients. The California Health Care Safety Net Institute (SNI) is the 501c3 affiliate of the California Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems (CAPH) and supports California’s public health care systems in their efforts to improve care delivery. The award, and a video celebrating the team, were presented at the CAPH/SNI Annual Conference on December 6. Their work was showcased in the 2018 UCSF Chancellor's State of the University Address on October 30.

Dr. Cortlyn Brown, third-year resident of the UCSF-SFGH Emergency Medicine Residency Program, was one of three recipients of the Chancellor Award for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership. Dr. Brown was recognized for her dedication to increasing opportunities for a diverse and inclusive workforce in medicine and her outstanding commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Dr. Ingrid Lim, Volunteer Assistant Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine, received the 2018 Charlotte Baer Memorial Award from the UCSF Volunteer Clinical Faculty Advisory Board at the Teaching Awards Ceremony on October 30. This award is presented annually to a member of the volunteer clinical faculty of the School of Medicine in recognition of distinguished service.

Dr. Nicolaus (Nick) Glomb, Assistant Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, received the 2017-2018 Maxine Papadakis Award for Faculty Professionalism and Respect at UCSF School of Medicine in the Emergency Medicine Department. This honor reflects the deep appreciation felt by third- and fourth-year medical students who nominated Dr. Glomb for this teaching award, which was presented at the UCSF School of Medicine Teaching Awards Ceremony on October 30, 2018.
