John Fromson, MD

Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital Chief of Psychiatry John Fromson, MD, has been named the recipient of the 2020 Cynthia N. Kettyle Teaching Award alongside Elizabeth Dunn, MD, Director of Consultation Liaison Psychiatry, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, by the Harvard Medical School Psychiatry Executive Committee.

In addition to his role as Chief, Dr. Fromson is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and has long been dedicated to helping shape the future of mental health care. “Teaching and mentoring Harvard Medical School students is an incredibly rewarding experience,” he says. “You have the privilege of guiding them to acquire essential knowledge and skills as well as watching them reach their full potential as future physicians. An added benefit is that the process makes me a better physician through life-long learning.”

Dr. Fromson says he is deeply honored to have received this award, which is presented annually to Harvard Medical School faculty members who have inspired medical students with their warmth, character and dedication to medical student teaching in psychiatry and have exemplified for students the vitality and relevance of psychiatry to medical practice.
