DEM Faculty Honored for Excellence in Teaching

October 22, 2016

Two Department of Emergency Medicine faculty members are recipients of the 2016 Vernon and Virginia Furrow Teaching Awards:

Richard Amini, MD, associate professor, for Excellence in Clinical Science Teaching in the Undergraduate Medical Curriculum.

Srikar Adhikari, MD, associate professor, for Excellence in Graduate Medical Education.

These UA College of Medicine awards recognize outstanding achievement and excellence in teaching. These teachers demonstrate dedication to the education of medical students and create an encouraging and intellectually stimulating environment that promotes critical thinking and learning.

The Furrow Awards were established by Virginia Mann Sugg Furrow, MD, who in 1942 was one of only two women in Baylor College of Medicine’s graduating class. The Furrow Awards are the College’s primary system for peer recognition of excellence in education and are presented by the College’s Academy of Medical Education Scholars (AMES).
