Jack Badawy, MD
Department of Medicine, Division of Hospital Medicine
Dr. Jack Badawy has been an outstanding faculty Hospitalist in the Department of Medicine for four years, and has assumed various educational leadership roles. His teaching activities now target the full spectrum of learners, from first year medical students to faculty.
He serves as Co-Director for the Resident as Teacher (RAT) elective, and also as a session facilitator for learners on the teaching resident track. In his role with the RAT elective, he collaborated with colleagues to develop a mobile application “ResTeach” that provides high-yield teaching tips for residents. The application offers just-in-time guidance to prepare for bedside teaching, feedback, and didactic sessions. This work was presented at a Shine Academy conference. Dr. Badawy leads a Quality Improvement cohort for internal medicine residents working on a QI project. He mentors residents rotating on an ultrasound elective. Dr. Badawy teaches medical students in both the Synthesis Case and Clinical Skills courses, and also serves as a faculty mentor for students through Veritas.
He has mentored faculty doing QI projects for the Clinical Safety and Effectiveness course. He started a “Hospitalist Grand Rounds” within our faculty development series and coordinated targeted education from specialists on disease entities pertinent to our colleagues. He became a Co-Director for our Hospital Medicine Journal Club, and provides guidance to faculty needing pointers on critical appraisal of the literature. He recently led a group of junior faculty to present an outstanding Grand Rounds on “Updates in Hospital Medicine” to the Department of Medicine.
Due to his demonstrated excellence in teaching and mentorship of learners at all levels, he has just been appointed as Director of Faculty Development for our Division of Hospital Medicine. I could not imagine a better candidate to receive an award as a “Star of Education”. Thank you for considering this nomination!
