Dr. Joey Newbigging Earns PARO Teaching Award

Dr. Joey Newbigging, Program Director, Enhanced Skills Emergency Medicine, has earned this year’s Professional Association of Residents of Ontario (PARO) Excellence in Clinical Teaching Award for Queen’s University. This award acknowledges the essential role good clinical teachers play in the training of new physicians. Residents are asked to outline the qualities that make their nominee an excellent teacher, considering patient care, quality of bedside teaching, and interest in trainees’ personal development and well-being. 

The award is presented annually to a recipient at each of the province’s six medical schools. Any clinical staff member involved in full- or part-time clinical teaching of residents is eligible for nomination. (Posted March 2019)
