University of Rochester Professor Receives ANA Teaching Award
October 22, 1998
Ralph F. Jozefowicz, M.D., received the American Neurological Association (ANA) Distinguished Neurology Teacher award at the ANA annual meeting in Montreal. The ANA, comprised exclusively of senior neurology faculty, solicits nominations for the award from neurology department chairs across the United States. Dr. Jozefowicz, the second recipient of the award, is an associate professor of neurology and medicine, associate chair for neurology education programs, and director of the neurology residency program at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Dr. Jozefowicz and the School of Medicine and Dentistry have received national recognition for the unified neurology curriculum he created. He has been requested to organize national symposia on the topic of a continuum of neurologic education at the American Academy of Neurology and ANA meetings. In addition, the performance of University of Rochester medical students in national standardized tests — such as the National Board of Medical Examiners subject test in neural sciences — is at the top in the nation.
Dr. Jozefowicz has been repeatedly recognized for his efforts with numerous teaching awards. In 1987 he was awarded a dean’s teaching fellowship, becoming the youngest faculty member to ever receive this prestigious award.
