The Vernie A. Stembridge Faculty Teaching Award is presented annually in honor of Vernie A. Stembridge, M.D., in recognition of his dedication and commitment to excellence in house staff teaching. Residents choose two faculty recipients (one AP and one CP) for their role in the residents' training.

This year's recipients are Assistant Professors Elena Lucas, M.D., for Anatomic Pathology and Franklin Fuda, D.O., for Clinical Pathology. Dr. Lucas and Dr. Fuda both received a small plaque and their names are engraved on a larger permanent plaque that hangs in the Chair's Office. Congratulations to both for a job well done.
