Ghosn Named Distinguished Teacher Professor

Cincinnati--Saad J. Ghosn, MD, professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine and director of the Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Service at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Cincinnati, is the recipient of the university-wide Distinguished Teaching Professorship Award. UC President Joseph Steger and the UC Board of Trustees approved the recommendation of the emeriti faculty review committee to award Ghosn this year's Distinguished Teaching Professorship Award. "Ghosn was given this most prestigious university honor in recognition of his excellence in teaching," said John Hutton, MD, dean of the UC College of Medicine.

Ghosn said, "I am very honored to have been selected for the award. Receiving this award is a direct recognition of the value that the UC College of Medicine and Dean Hutton place upon education."

Ghosn has been teaching at the UC College of Medicine for 15 years. During that time, he developed courses on the topic of practicing cost-effective medicine, and was the editor for the yearly book of UC third-year medical students' best papers from 1994 through 1999. Ghosn received the Golden Apple for being chosen by the medical students as the best teacher in 1990, 1992, and 1994. He also received the Silver Apple Award as an outstanding teacher in the basic sciences in 1996, 1998, and 1999. Ghosn won a Faculty Achievement Award in 1995.

The UC College of Medicine nominated him for the national Alpha Omega Alpha distinguished teacher award in both the basic and clinical sciences in 1992 and 1998, respectively. In 1998, he was nominated by the Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center for the "Federal Employee-of-the-Year Award."
