On March 2, 2012, Dr. Eric Wallen was notified by the 2012 AUA Residents Committee that he was this year's recipient of the AUA Teacher of the Year award. This award, initiated by the AUA Residents Committee and approved by the AUA Board, is presented annually to recognize an outstanding urology educator or program director who has dedicated a portion of his/her career to teaching residents and advancing urology graduate medical education. The award will also serve to recognize individuals who, by their example, influence residents to pursue careers in academic medicine and teaching.
This award will be presented to Dr. Wallen at the AUA Residents Committee Forum held Saturday, May 19, 2012 at the annual AUA meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.
Congratulations Dr. Wallen!
