2020–2021 Vernie A. Stembridge Winners Announced

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. Dr. Stembridge was the Pathology Chair from 1967 until 1988. Residents choose two faculty recipients (one AP and one CP) for their role in the residents' training.

This year's recipients are Assistant Professor James Mitchell, M.D., for Anatomic Pathology and Professor Dominick Cavuoti, D.O., for Clinical Pathology. This award completes Dr. Mitchell's first year of teaching. This is the fifth time Dr. Cavuoti has been so honored in his 19 years teaching at UTSW. Drs. Mitchell and Cavuoti both received a small plaque, and their names have been engraved on a larger permanent plaque that hangs in the Chair's Office. Congratulations to both for a job well done!.
