Dermatology Faculty Members Awarded Prestigious Prizes

Helen Pugsley: Clinical Teacher of the Year 2011

Helen Pugsley - Clinical Teacher of the Year

Helen Pugsley has won the inaugural British Medical Association Wales Clinical Teacher of the year 2011. She has also been awarded the Teaching Excellence, Postgraduate (Taught) Award by Cardiff University School of Medicine.

Helen said a good clinical teacher is many things to many different people; the ability to recognise and support the needs of learners is an important step in achieving success at what we do. She credits the whole dermatology team for the award; “I am lucky as the team appreciate the hard work that goes into supporting students through all aspects of postgraduate education. It is not just the academia and quality of the course, it’s a journey with many unexpected learning events (technical, administrative and building a collaborative learning community) which all contribute to the ultimate goal of improving patient care”. The award was a unique commissioned artist piece called Atom by Chris Williams and £1000 worth of products from the British Medical Journal group.
