Anne L. Brodie Teaching Award 2014-Dr. Sabrina Nunez
Nuñez Receives Anne L. Brodie Teacher’s Award
Congratulations to Sabrina Nuñez, PhD, Assistant Professor of Medical Education, Office of Undergraduate Medical Education & Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, on receiving the Alpha Omega Alpha – Anne L. Brodie Teacher’s Teacher Award for excellence in mentoring clinical educators.
Dr John Dent’s nomination letter opined, “Dr Nunez is an incredibly capable educator and collaborator in the Medical School, one of the best I have seen in my nearly 27 years here. What really sets her apart is her ability to increase the efficacy of other teachers.”
Dr. Neeral Shaw added, “…Dr Nunez has the magic touch…. She has helped many faculty members, including myself, to visualize the educational sessions from the learner’s point of view. She has helped take faculty who have been teaching 20-30 years and given them new invigorated enthusiasm to embrace these new active learning techniques.”
Dr. Nuñez says, “This award is a testament to the collaboration that underlies effective teaching. My contribution is only valuable in the context of a team of passionate educators!”
As part of her nomination, Dr. Nuñez wrote a personal reflection. In it, she wrote, “It is extremely flattering to be receiving this nomination for my role in this success. Credit belongs to all of us collectively though, and I am certain I have learnt as much from them as they have from me.”
The Alpha Omega Alpha – Anne L Brodie Teacher’s Teacher Award is an annual award intended to recognize University of Virginia School of Medicine faculty who model excellence in mentoring clinical educators. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Nuñez on this outstanding honor.
