Shubin-Weil Master Clinician/Teacher: Excellence in Bedside Teaching Award

Nicholas Sadovnikoff, MD, FCCM, will receive the Shubin-Weil Master Clinician/Teacher: Excellence in Bedside Teaching Award at the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) 48th Critical Care Congress during the American College of Critical Care Medicine Convocation/SCCM Awards Presentation held on Monday, February 18, 2019.

The Shubin-Weil Master Clinician/Teacher: Excellence in Bedside Teaching Award honors an SCCM member who is a role model of excellence in both the teaching and ethical practice of critical care. The recipient should be someone who is not nationally or internationally well-known or whose name is not recognized for his/her research efforts.

The major criterion for selection of the award recipient is excellence in teaching, evidence of which is embodied in the accomplishments of the recipient’s trainees. The recipient should have inspired his/her trainees as a role model of both clinical and teaching excellence. It is this greatness as a teacher—namely, the ability to inspire the next generation of clinician-teachers—that the Shubin-Weil Award honors. The recipient must also meet these criteria:

  • Be an SCCM section member
  • Have a combination of attributes that makes him/her a role model of excellence in both the teaching and ethical practice of critical care
  • Have direct patient responsibilities
  • Be recognized as an outstanding clinician/teacher who by example and leadership has substantially furthered the expert and appropriate use of life support interventions
