Larrie Greenberg, M.D., Awarded First Ever Northeast Group on Educational Affairs Distinguished Educator Award

Congratulations to Larrie Greenberg, M.D., clinical professor of Pediatrics, and senior consultant for the Office of Medical Education, who is the first recipient of the Northeast Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA) Distinguished Educator Award.

The NEGEA Distinguished Educator Award is an annual award that was created to recognize and honor up to two individuals from the NEGEA institutions that have made significant contributions over time to the field of medical education. Awardees exhibit all of the following:

1.      Excellence in teaching, both at their institution and within NEGEA.

2.      Noteworthy professional development of others through innovative faculty development, mentoring relationships and other developmental activities.

3.      A track record of peer-reviewed publications in medical education.

“I owe a debt of gratitude to all of my colleagues with whom I have worked, including the students, fellows, and residents I have mentored and taught. I am also grateful to GW and Children’s National Health System for allowing me to take risks and make education the focus of my career,” said Greenberg.

Greenberg was honored with this award in April at the NEGEA regional meeting held at U Mass.

The NEGEA is one of four regional groups of the AAMC's Group on Educational Affairs (GEA). The purpose is to promote excellence in the education of medical students, residents, and physicians through the professional development of medical educators. The regional meetings provide a forum for exchanging ideas, learning new strategies, and developing plans that may facilitate your own work and implementation of the NEGEA mission.
