KSUCPM Alumnus and Faculty Member Wins Mentor of the Year Award
Mentoring of learners by faculty is a crucial element in promoting and sustaining a scholarly podiatric medical community, and one that KSUCPM is proud to foster. University Hospitals has created two annual Scholarly Mentor of the Year awards to recognize the outstanding teaching efforts of faculty who actively mentor students. These prestigious awards acknowledge the time, sacrifice and dedication that faculty mentors devote to fostering the career development and academic success of learners in the area of research and quality improvement. The Scholarly Mentor of the Year awards allow the programs to honor and celebrate the valuable efforts of teaching faculty who embody the spirit of mentoring. KSUCPM is proud to congratulate alumni and faculty member Dr. Duane Ehredt on being awarded this year’s Scholarly Mentor of the Year award!
