Dr. Rein’s Comments:
It is a particular pleasure to present the Virginia Chapter’s Teaching Award to Mitchell Rosner M.D., FACP. I have known Dr. Rosner since he was a resident and then a chief resident at the University of Virginia, but neither of us would like you to know how long ago that occurred. I have personally observed Dr. Rosner as a teacher in many different settings. As a resident, he was an excellent teacher of medical students. I was able to observe him, as junior faculty, on his rounds and in his performance of consultations. He was able to create an outstanding teaching environment, with a wonderful balance of being supportive and, at the same time, appropriately challenging. More recently, I have heard him lecture in many settings, including our Grand Rounds and, repeatedly, at ACP events. His lectures are characterized by exceptional clarity of thought, and he is able to communicate his ideas with great effectiveness. In addition to all of this, Mitch teaches professionalism by serving as an outstanding role model. He is also a really nice guy. His winning this award actually contributes to its stature.
