Jonathan Nye, MD, has been named as one of the 2015 recipients of the UCSF Kaiser Award for Excellence in Teaching in recognition of his outstanding educational efforts in the inpatient care setting. He will be saluted at a special ceremony and reception for this year’s recipients on Wednesday, October 21 from 4-6 p.m. in HSW-300.

Any faculty member who teaches medical students or residents is eligible for nomination. In addition to Nye, nominees this year from UCSF Psychiatry included Kavoos G. Bassiri, CGP; David Jull-Patterson, MD; Dean Sasaki, MD; and John Straznickas, MD.
