Sancak Yuksel, MD, an otorhinolaryngologist affiliated with Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and an associate professor in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at McGovern Medical School, has been recognized with the medical school’s Dean’s Teaching Excellence Award for the fourth time. Recognized for the first time this year was Tang Ho, MD, who is chief of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and an assistant professor in the Department.
The Dean’s Teaching Excellence Award is an annual recognition presented to faculty and volunteers for outstanding teaching performance. Those chosen to receive the award have exhibited outstanding teaching, incited intellectual curiosity in their students, engaged them in the learning process, helped them develop lifelong skills or otherwise served with distinction.
“Sharing my knowledge hones my medical skills,” Dr. Yuksel says. “I feel privileged to be in a position to make a lasting impact on our residents’ careers and the lives of their future patients.”
“It’s a special pleasure to train residents,” Dr. Ho says. “As faculty we are privileged to have the opportunity to teach our residents and learn from them at the same time.”
