NOSM dean recognized for his contributions to health education
Dr. Roger Strasser, dean of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, received one of seven special awards for outstanding health professional educators at the Prince Mahidol Award Conference 2014, in Pattaya, Thailand.
The annual conference focuses on health issues of global significance in order to inspire positive policy reform.
Strasser was nominated for the health educators award due to his commitment to delivering training in rural and remote areas, for innovation in education that has lead to the production of quality health professionals, and for his leadership that has changed paradigms of learning.
“This award is not for me alone, but rather, for the Northern Ontario School of Medicine as a whole, recognizing the collective success of everyone who has contributed to the School’s world-leading achievements,” Strasser said in a release.
“It is truly exciting for NOSM to be recognized as a leader in social accountability through distributed, learning-centered, community-engaged education and research.”
