It is with great pleasure we announce that Dr. Stephanie Downs-Canner, Assistant Professor in the Division of Surgical Oncology has been chosen by the Academy of Educators as the recipient of the 2020-2021 Craver Medical Student Teaching Award.
Joseph M. Craver, M.D. ’67, a retired Thoracic Surgeon in Atlanta, GA, gifted the Craver Medical Student Teaching Awards in recognition of the beloved clinical teachers who challenged him along his UNC medical education journey. This teaching award is eligible to an MD faculty member in the Departments of Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, or Surgery who is an outstanding teacher in one of these three core clerkship fields, and who inspires and changes the lives of medical students through their teaching. Selected faculty members must be directly involved in clerkship teaching and outstanding in that capacity. Craver Medical Student Teaching Award selection is made twice a year, in consultation with the Vice Dean of Education, the Department Chairs, Academy of Educators, and Medical Alumni Affairs.
