Dr. Stephanie Caterson, plastic surgeon at both Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School faculty member, was recently awarded the Bernard Lown Award for Excellence in Teaching.
The award celebrates physicians who are outstanding clinical teachers. The winner must be a member of the Harvard faculty with a principal appointment at Brigham and Women’s Hospital at the instructor, assistant professor or associate professor level, across all departments for achievement of outstanding clinical teaching of students, house staff and fellows.
“I am extremely honored to receive the Bernard Lown Award for Excellence in Teaching,” says Dr. Caterson of the honor. “Dr. Lown is a Master Teacher, and is beloved by all who know him. For me, learning and teaching go hand in hand. I believe in the philosophy that one should never stop learning. Throughout my career, I have been very grateful to those who have taken the time to teach me. In turn, I feel as though it is my responsibility to return the favor. Teaching promotes further learning and helps maintain our intellectual curiosity. A student once told me that I had inspired them. I can think of no greater compliment. To inspire through teaching motivates the next generation, and is a wonderful gift to give. Dr. Lown inspired those around him and it is an enormous privilege to receive an award that bears his name.”
