Dr. Brian Hodges, UHN’s Executive Vice-President of Education, was recognized for stimulating “an international medical education metamorphosis to prepare the next generation of physicians for the rapidly changing future.” (Video: The Association of American Medical Colleges)
Dr. Brian Hodges has received the 2015 Abraham Flexner Award for Distinguished Service to Medical Education, which recognizes extraordinary individual contributions to medical schools and to the medical education community as a whole.
Dr. Hodges, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto and UHN's Executive Vice-President of Education, "has stimulated an international medical education metamorphosis," according to the Association of American Medical Colleges, which has given out the award annually since 1958.
"By challenging the very notion of competence and its assessment in his roles as educator, scholar and administrator, his ideas have explored, tested and transformed the boundaries of medical education scholarship and practice," the AAMC said in a
news release announcing the award.
Dr. Hodges, whose research has been cited more than 4,400 times in 10 languages, said: "I really don't think individuals win awards. I think that those of us that are so fortunate to be recognized come from environments that stimulate great things."
