Chung receives 2022 Golden Apple Award

Aimee Chung, MD, an associate professor of medicine and pediatrics has been recognized with a 2022 Golden Apple Award in the clinical faculty category by the Duke School of Medicine medical students. Notably, this is her fourth year as a Golden Apple recipient!

The Golden Apple Awards are the highest teaching awards presented by the Duke University School of Medicine student body to recognize outstanding dedication to medical student education. Awardees are selected first by open nomination, then by a vote of the student body. Three awards are given each year: one each to a member of the preclinical (basic science) faculty, clinical faculty, and clinical house staff.

This year’s awards were presented during the annual Student-Faculty Show, Medically Blonde (a parody of Legally Blonde), on Friday, March 4 at the Reynolds Theater, Bryan Center. 

Congratulations on this well-deserved honor!

About the Show

The Student-Faculty Show is a decades-long tradition at the Duke University School of Medicine that is entirely directed, produced, written, and performed by Duke University medical students. All proceeds from this year's show will benefit Root Causes with partner Farmer Foodshare. Root Causes is a nonprofit started by our very own Duke medical students. They run several programs in the community including providing fresh produce to over 350 community members with food insecurity, assisting newly housed community members with building a home, running a local community garden, and supporting community members in reaching their exercise goals. Nonprofit Farmer Foodshare works closely with Root Causes to distribute fresh produce to the local community.
