Christopher Schott, Assistant Professor in the Departments of Emergency Medicine and Critical Care Medicine, received the Clinical Educator of the Year Award at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine’s annual Curriculum Colloquium, held this year on October 20. Schott was recognized for providing outstanding clinical education in a third or fourth year elective course for medical students.
This is not the first teaching-related recognition Schott has received this year. Just in May, Schott received the Golden Apple Award, which recognizes the educator who had the most significant impact on the graduating medical students.
Schott, a 2013 graduate of our Multidisciplinary Critical Care Training Program, has specialty interests in point of care ultrasonography as well as medical education. He serves as the course director for the medical school elective in point of care ultrasonography, as well as co-director for the medical student elective in critical care medicine.
