Aimee Chung, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics and medicine, received the 2017 Duke Medicine Golden Apple Award for Clinical Science Faculty.
The award, presented during the annual Student-Faculty Show, is the most prestigious teaching award presented by the Duke University School of Medicine student body to recognize physician-teachers that the medical students feel have played an exceptionally effective and dedicated role in their 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, over 100 individuals were nominated for a Golden Apple, highlighting not only the highly selective nature of the award, but also the incredible dedication of each awardee to medical student education.
Chung completed her medical training at East Carolina University in 2005 and medicine-pediatrics residency at the Duke University School of Medicine in 2009.
