On Saturday May 22nd, the University of Pittsburgh Medical School graduating class of 2004 presented the Golden Apple Award to Dr. Paul Rogers for excellence in clinical education. Dr. Rogers has received this honor four times previously; and the last three have been in consecutive years since 2001. He has been particularly active with simulator training of students at WISER, the Peter M. Winter Institute for Simulation Education and Research, but remains an outstanding teacher both in the classroom and at the bedside. Recently, Dr. Rogers also received the Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award from the Arnold P. Gold Foundation. This award is given to a faculty member who is judged to be exemplary in his respect for colleagues and in his compassion and sensitivity in the delivery of care to patients and families. We thank Dr. Rogers for his continued dedication to medical education and congratulate him for receiving these prestigious awards.
