The award was established by Baylor President, CEO and Executive Dean Dr. Paul Klotman to recognize faculty for their exemplary qualities of clinical excellence and expertise, consistent high level of patient care, professionalism, commendable leadership skills and continuous service to the community.
The Master Clinician Award is for full professors with 15 or more years of clinical service at Baylor College of Medicine.
After an introduction by Dr. Alicia Monroe, Baylor provost and Senior Vice President for Academic and Faculty Affairs, the award was presented by Klotman and Dr. Thomas Wheeler, Chair of Pathology & Immunology at Baylor College of Medicine, who served as chair of the Master Clinician and Rising Star Clinician selection committee.
“These awards are important to me personally, and they are also important to Baylor College of Medicine,” Klotman said. “At the end of the day, how we take care of patients is what differentiates us from others.”
