CARDIOLOGY INSTITUTE: NEW DESERVED AWARD
The Faculty of Medicine of the Hebrew University has selected the Hadassah Cardiology Institute to receive the prestigious “Gratitude to the department for Excellence in Clinical Education” award.
Professor Yoram Weiss, the CEO of the Hadassah Clinic, said that this award, like many others, confirms the leading position of the Hadassah Cardiology Institute at the forefront of global progress in this field.
“I warmly congratulate the teaching staff of the Hadassah Cardiology Institute on their selection by the Hebrew University as leaders in the important task of educating the next generation of Israeli doctors. I’m not surprised by this choice. The selection of the faculty is one of the most important reasons for the technological advances and breakthroughs that have taken place at the Institute in recent times. Only recently, the leading magazine NEWSWEEK noted that the Cardiology Institute of the Hadassah Hospital is one of the leading medical centers in the world,” said Prof. Weiss.
“I am proud to have been fortunate to be one of those who have led the Cardiology Institute to outstanding educational success over the years. Today I am glad that our Institute received this prestigious award. This is further proof that investing in education is worth it. I have personally received the Distinguished Faculty Lecturer award twice in my career, but this time it has a completely different meaning: recognition of excellent teamwork. I was delighted to take part in the faculty award ceremony and receive the award on behalf of the cardiology team,” said Dr. Rifat Jabara, Head of the Inpatient Unit at the Cardiology Department and Head of the Educational Programs at the Cardiology Department.
Dr. Jabara explained that receiving such a prestigious award requires success in 3 steps. First, the faculty must succeed in teaching with a GPA above 94. Second, be among the top ten outstanding departments in the Faculty of Medicine at the Jerusalem Hebrew University. Third, the faculty must maintain a GPA of 94 for three consecutive years. The GPA of the Cardiology Institute of the Hadassah Clinic for three years was 98.
“We have been honored to achieve our current status through hard work with a wonderful team of students at the Cardiology Institute. Our entire staff participated in this mission, demonstrating a great commitment to teaching, medical education, and nurturing the next generation of future physicians. I express my gratitude to each of them. I have no doubt that teaching is very important and it is one of the most beautiful aspects of medicine,” concludes Dr. Jabara.
