UT Southwestern first-year medical students have once again honored several neurology faculty members with teaching awards.

Students recognized Elliot M. Frohman, M.D,, Ph.D., and Benjamin Greenberg, M.D., in the Low Exposure category (3 lectures or less), and Stephen Cannon, M.D., Ph.D., in the High Exposure category (4 or more lectures.)

In addition to the teaching awards, students voted Neuroscience their favorite course for the second year in a row. Dr. Elliot Frohman says the growing interest in neuroscience will hopefully lead to more physicians specializing in neurology.

“There was a time when neuroscience was not even on the radar screen of the first year students,” said Dr. Frohman. “But with so much progress being made in the area of neurotherapeutics, and so much more that is necessary, we desperately need to recruit the best and the brightest to taken on our current and future clinical and research initiatives.”

Dennis Burns, M.D., and Dr. Cannon, are co-directors of the Neuroscience course. Charlotte Bentley is the course administrator.

“Dr. Burns and Dr. Cannon and the heroic support structure we call 'Ms. Charlotte Bentley' are to be especially recognized for their incredible energy, passion, and dedication to our deserving Southwestern students,” said Dr. Frohman. “I am indeed deeply honored to be among them.”

This year’s award ceremony and roast was held May 15, 2013.
