Dr. Yehuda Nofech-Mozes, Paediatrics Education Lead at Scarborough and Rouge Hospital’s (SRH) Centenary site, has received a Peters-Boyd Academy award from the University of Toronto (U of T) for his work as a clerk supervisor of medical students.

“Dr. Nofech-Mozes is an example of the incredible commitment at SRH to advance the medical profession and educate the next generation of physicians,” said Dr. Dick Zoutman, SRH’s Chief of Staff.

“Dr. Nofech-Mozes is dedicated and passionate about his teaching,” added Dr. Karen Chang, Chief of Paediatrics SRH’s Centenary site.

“Under his leadership, the Paediatrics program at the Centenary site has been ranked the top teaching program by U of T medical students among all 19 paediatric teaching sites in the GTA for the last two years.”

“It was a real honor to be nominated by a third year U of T medical student and receive Peters-Boyd Academy award from U of T,” commented Dr. Nofech-Mozes.

“I feel it represents the experience students receive when they train here, which includes direct teaching, as well as ensuring they receive maximum exposure to patients and their families by working closely and one-on-one with and under our paediatric subspecialists, general paediatricians, paediatric orthopedic surgeon, and neonatologists. The fact that our interprofessional team of nurses, social workers, dietitians, and pharmacists also share their knowledge adds to this very positive and exciting learning environment. The Peters-Boyd Academy award is a testament to the entire outstanding paediatric team at Centenary.”

The Peters-Boyd Awards are part of the Peters-Boyd Academy run through the Medicine program at U of T. As a community teaching hospital affiliated with U of T, SRH is one of the hospital sites where third and fourth year medical students can train.

SRH accommodates more than 750 clinical student placements across the hospital’s programs and services each year. For more information, visit our website.
