This year has seen the introduction of our new Mid Yorkshire Undergraduate Teaching Excellence Awards.
Our Trust has an excellent reputation for the provision of varied and innovative teaching to medical students from both Leeds and Sheffield Medical Schools. Over the last five years we have won numerous clinical teaching excellence awards from Leeds medical School and are frequently cited as the most popular placement by students.
This depends entirely on the hardworking and focussed clinicians, nurse educators, non-clinical staff and allied healthcare professionals who have provided such a successful and popular teaching programme.
It is in recognition of this work that the Medical Education department has now introduced their own awards scheme to recognise and reward excellence in teaching by individuals and teams within the Trust.
The awards this year have been awarded as follows:
Most innovative medical undergraduate project teaching awards
Dr Patrick Tung, Emergency department, Dewsbury and District hospital.
Best ‘non-medic’ medical undergraduate teacher award
Sister Veronica Wagstaff and Sister Claire Swales, Burns Unit, Pinderfields Hospital.
The best undergraduate team teaching award
The Medical Student Ultrasound Training (MUST) Team: Mr Asoka Weerasinghe, Dr Patrick Tung, Mr Dean Okereke, Dr Nikesh Menon, Ms Ann-Marie Kemp, Mr Adam Smith, Mr Zakir Chopdat, Mr Stephen Grundy.
Individual excellence in teaching medical students by a junior doctor award

Chief Executive Martin Barkley was there to meet the winners and present their certificates. Well done everyone and thank you for your hard work!
