Congratulations to Drs. Alina Fomovska, Lily Muldoon, and Stephen Villa, our 2018-2019 Chief Residents!

Dr. Jeanne Noble for UCSF, Dr. Dan Repplinger for SFGH (pictured at left), and Dr. Dina Wallin for PEM are the 2nd Quarter Bedside Teaching Award winners for 2017-18. Our EM residents honor faculty members for their teaching abilities each quarter (PEM is semi-annual) by recognizing the ED Attending at each site who stands out for their bedside teaching skills and ability to provide constructive feedback to the EM residents.

It is the first such designation in the US, and one of only two in the world specifically dedicated to building emergency care systems. The designation provides a formalized relationship between the UCSF Department of Emergency Medicine and the WHO by allowing more streamlined engagement, improving funding opportunities and developing a more formal framework for joint activities.

Dr. Aaron Kornblith, Assistant Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, received the 2017 ACEP National Emergency Medicine Junior Faculty Teaching Award at the annual ACEP Scientific Assembly in Washington, D.C., on October 28, 2017.
