Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education announces Teacher of the Year Awards

Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education, along with the Mayo Clinic Alumni Association and  Mayo Fellows’ Association in Rochester, has announced recipients of the Teacher of the Year Awards, and the Edward C. Kendall and Donald C. Balfour Alumni Awards for Meritorious Research.

Typically, Teachers of the Year are honored at a very well-attended event, where a trainee-nominator speaks about the mentor’s outstanding qualities. Due to the pandemic, this event was canceled. Please reach out to the 2020 Teachers of the Year to offer congratulations.
