At the recent Pitt School of Medicine graduation, Christopher Schott, MD, MS, received the Golden Apple Teaching Award for the 2nd year in a row. This is the highest award the medical students can bestow on an educator. Schott is an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Emergency Medicine and Critical Care Medicine.
“Chris is truly an outstanding and dedicated educator, as this award demonstrates and all of our fellows know,” said Lori Shutter, MD, FCCM, Vice Chair of Education in the Department of Critical Care Medicine. In addition to being the Co-Director of the Critical Care Elective Student Rotation and the Director of the Point of Care Ultrasound Elective Student Rotation, Schott also leads the ultrasound training program for the fellows in the Multidisciplinary Critical Care Training Program (MCCTP).
In a message to the medical students, Schott wrote, “It has been my pleasure to teach you all this year through both the CCM and POCUS elective courses. It is an honor to work with such an incredibly talented and hard working group of students.”
