First Published 12/15/2014

$10,000 STUDENT AWARDS

CALL FOR NOMINATION:

The John P. McGovern Student Awards in Oslerian Medicine

The McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine is pleased to announce the John P. McGovern Student Awards in Oslerian Medicine.  (http://www.utmb.edu/osler/awards/student_award.asp)   These awards provide monetary support for the education of medical students whose performance and conduct exemplify those ideals of medical practice as promulgated by Sir William Osler. The fundamental principles of Oslerian medicine include:

  • Compassionate, personalized medical care that emphasizes the doctor/patient relationship
  • Incorporation of a sound scientific basis for optimal patient care
  • Professional behavior at all times

The students that are given the honor of this award are called “Osler Student Scholars.”  The expectations of the Osler Student Scholars are to:

  • Learn about the values and principles that governed the professional lives of John P. McGovern and Sir William Osler.
  • Be active in the community of Osler Student Scholars and participate in projects of others or your own.
  • Serve as a role model for your Osler Student Society and foster learning for yourself and others about Oslerian principles and incorporate those ideals into your education and practice.
  • Encourage reflection on humanities and the importance of science as a foundation for the practice of medicine.
  • Attend monthly meetings of the John P. McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine and other meetings of the Osler Student Scholars.
  • Attend, and consider presenting at, the annual American Osler Society meeting and bimonthly Osler Club meetings.

Each award will be for $10,000 per year.  In 2015, awards will be presented to five (5) students: two rising sophomores and three entering the second, third, or fourth years who are in good academic standing in the UTMB School of Medicine (SOM).

A medical student who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a sophomore will receive funding for three (3) consecutive years, a medical student who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a junior will receive funding for two (2) consecutive years, and a medical student who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a senior will receive funding for one (1) year.

Medical students who are enrolled in dual degree programs are also eligible to become an Osler Student Scholar.  A student enrolled in a dual degree program who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a sophomore medical student will receive funding for only three (3) consecutive years without regard to which UTMB school the student is enrolled. A student enrolled in a dual degree program who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a junior medical student will receive funding for only two (2) consecutive years without regard to which UTMB school the student is enrolled. A student enrolled in a dual degree program who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a senior student will receive funding for only one year.

Faculty who have worked with medical students as small group facilitators or preceptors in clinical settings, or mentors in the Osler Student Societies or other organizations, are especially encouraged to recommend this opportunity to worthy students. 

Interested students may download an application by logging on to: http://www.utmb.edu/osler/awards/student_award.asp.  The applicant must also submit letters of recommendation from one of his or her POM faculty members, from another member of the SOM faculty, and from a medical student well acquainted with the applicant.  An optional fourth letter of recommendation may be submitted by any other person who knows the applicant well.  (Current Osler Scholars are excluded from writing letters of recommendation for nominees unless the faculty is the student’s sole POM facilitator.)

Applications and letters of recommendation may be submitted in hard copy to the address above or electronically to the McGovern Academy (mcacadem@utmb.edu).  The completed application and all letters of recommendation must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 23, 2015.  For answers to questions about the application, please call Ms. Rosemary Lindley at ext. 79680 or by email at mcacadem@utmb.edu.

Call for Nominations: Roberto Logrono MD Award and Lectureship for Professionalism in Medicine
First Published 12/15/2014

The Department of Pathology, UTMB seeks nominations for the fourth annual Roberto Logroño, MD Award and Lectureship for Professionalism in Medicine.

Dr. Logroño was born in New Britain, Connecticut, and grew up in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, where he graduated from Medical School in 1982 at the Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo. He completed residency training in anatomic and clinical pathology at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey and a fellowship in cytopathology at the University of Wisconsin Medical Center in Madison. In 1997 he was appointed director of the UTMB Division of Cytopathology, a position he held until his unexpected death in 2006. Dr. Logrono was a tenured Professor in the Department of Pathology.

In his foreshortened career as a clinician, educator, mentor and investigator, Dr. Logroño exemplified many of the attributes of professionalism, including altruism, accountability, excellence, duty, honor, integrity, and respect for others.

He has been described in such ways by numerous people who knew him personally and professionally:

“His respect, integrity, conscientiousness, and dedication promptly led to an unsurpassable reputation and trust among our local pathologists and clinical doctors. Roberto was humble and determined, and was not afraid to express his honest opinion in any situation.”

 “Dr. Logroño was generous with his time, and contributed without hesitation to support and advance the cytopathology community. He was always ready to share his experience and advice.”

 “Dr. Logroño was passionate about cytology and teaching. He cared deeply about his residents and fellows and made certain that they were included in cytopathology related activities.”

 “Roberto’s passion for learning was exceeded only by his commitment to the profession as an educator.”

“Roberto’s commitment to all facets of academia was obvious at the institutional level as well as nationally. He was recognized for his excellence on numerous occasions, and his enthusiasm and passion for the topics he taught were reflected by the superb evaluations he invariably received.”

The UTMB Department of Pathology is delighted to invite UTMB’s campus-wide faculty, staff and students to submit nominations for the annual award and lectureship on professionalism in medicine in memory of Roberto Logroño, M.D.

The nominee should be a UTMB faculty member noted for a high level of professionalism in patient care, teaching and/or medical research. Nominations will be received from students, house staff, faculty and staff, and should include a cover letter describing how the candidate exemplifies the principles of professionalism in everyday behavior and in interactions with peers, patients, and students. The proposal should be submitted electronically and should include the candidate’s Curriculum Vitae (CV) and at least two (2) letters of support from colleagues who are well acquainted with the candidate. Additional letters of support are welcome.

The deadline for nominations is January 15, 2015. Supporting documents should be sent together to Dr. Alexander J. Indrikovs, Vice Chair of Pathology Clinical Services at aindriko@utmb.edu, with subject heading “Roberto Logroño Lectureship.”

The selection will be made by the Organizing Committee: Drs. Mark Holden, David Walker, Judith Aronson, Juan Olano, Alexander Indrikovs, and Susan McCammon.

The recipient of the award will be honored at a formal reception to be held on April 30, 2015 following the lecture on professionalism.

Thank you for giving serious thought to the nomination of a respected colleague deserving of this honor.
