Dr. William McIvor was recently awarded the Donald S. Fraley Award for Medical Student Mentoring. The award recognizes individuals for their outstanding contribution to medical education through their service as mentors to medical students at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. These significant mentoring contributions extend beyond a single student or group of students.
This award is named for the late Donald S. Fraley, MD, alumnus of the School of Medicine (Class of 1968), professor of medicine, and past chair of the Curriculum Committee. Dr. Fraley was regarded by his students and peers as an outstanding mentor. During his career he influenced the professional development of scores of medical students and residents. He led by his example, demonstrating a high regard for his patients, students, and colleagues while striving for the highest quality in clinical care and scholarship. By his actions, he contributed richly to the educational culture of the School of Medicine. Honorees are nominated by the Curriculum Committee and selected by the Curriculum Committee Executive Subcommittee. The award is given at the Annual Curriculum Colloquium.
Dr. McIvor is the Associate Director for Medical Students Programs at WISER. Dr. McIvor has continuously helped to mentor medical students at WISER on projects and has helped to introduce many of them to the benefits of medical simulation. WISER would like to congratulate Dr. McIvor on this accomplishment.
