Halperin, M.D., M.A.  Special awards and certificates were presented by Diana Cunningham, M.L.S., M.P.H., Associate Dean & Director of the Health Sciences Library for special achievements (see below). Regardless of the awards, Diana always likes to remind those assembled that everyone who publishes and represents New York Medical College as an author is a winner!

5. NYMC faculty author whose support enabled the library to accomplish its vision and mission:

This year we give this award to a person who has been extraordinarily supportive of the library and an advocate of the attainment of information management competencies. Together over 15 years ago together we launched the first thesis prep sessions for Masters’ students in the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences – a program that continues to be held annually and has grown to 5 sessions. This faculty member routinely refers students to the library for assistance with their information searches, is currently supporting our conceptualization of a university writing center co-supported by the library, and has plans to include his librarian liaison in addressing our competencies in the medical school Biostatistics course.  For all this and more, this award goes to:

Dr. Fred Moy, Ph.D., MBA
Associate Professor of Clinical Pathology and
Director, Master of Science Programs in Experimental Pathology
Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences
Department of Pathology

Also, awards were given to the percent of published authors by academic department.  Top winners were as follows:

  • Basic Sciences Departments:  Department of Physiology with 53% of their faculty published during the 2013 academic year.
  • Clinical Departments:  Department of Pathology with 34% of their faculty published during the 2013 academic year.
  • School of Health Sciences and Practice: Environmental Health Sciences and Epidemiology and Community Health shared the top honors.

All received a bottle of kosher wine to share with their colleagues.

Special mention of course and clerkship directors and acknowledgement of those who published during  the 2013 academic year:  Drs. Thompson, Sharma, Moy, Geliebter, Stallings, and Marks.
