Monica Lemmon, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics in the Division of Pediatric Neurology, was recently named an Osler attending by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHUSOM). Dr. Lemmon has been pursuing her research in collaboration with both Duke and Johns Hopkins, and this prestigious designation recognizes her dedication to teaching medical students in the neurology clerkship at Johns Hopkins and for her work in the “Difficult Conversations Curriculum Project.”
“This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication that Monica consistently demonstrates and is clearly a reflection of outstanding leadership in education,” says Mohamad Mikati, MD, chair of the Duke Pediatric Division of Neurology.
Sir William Osler, 1st Baronet, FRS, FRCP; (July 12, 1849 – December 29, 1919) was a Canadian physician and one of the four founding professors of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Osler created the first residency program for specialty training of physicians, and he was the first to bring medical students out of the lecture hall for bedside clinical training. He has frequently been described as the "Father of Modern Medicine.”
Congratulations, Dr. Lemmon!
