The Scarborough Hospital’s (TSH’s) staff and physicians continue to exceed expectations during professional awards season, most recently being Dr. Caroline Thompson who received the Innovation in Education Award from the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto.
Dr. Thompson is a TSH Emergency Department (ED) physician and the Medical Education lead for the ED rotation.
It was noted in a nomination letter submitted by her colleague, Dr. Caroline Walker, that:
Dr. Thompson’s passion for teaching is obvious. [She] listened to resident feedback by offering additional simulation experience leading up to our exam. Dr. Thompson is an excellent example of someone who improves residency education by listening to resident voices. She is extremely good at her job and her enthusiasm is infectious. Simply put, she is a great educator.
