UR Medical Center’s Davis Wins National Award

Apr. 1, 2010

Robert S. Davis, M.D., professor of Urology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, has been selected as the winner of the 2010 Residents Committee Teaching Award, sponsored by the American Urological Association. Davis was chosen for his demonstrated commitment to education through active participation as faculty member in an accredited urology residency program.

Davis, of Pittsford, has consistently demonstrated his dedication and effectiveness in teaching residents, through value based and highly principled behaviors and serving as a role model. 

Davis has worked at the Medical Center ever since he completed his residency at Strong Memorial Hospital in 1974.  He spends times with residents in the operating room, supervises resident clinics including the Monroe Community Hospital Urology clinic and attends most teaching conferences. 

“The teacher always learns the most and I have been thankful for the brilliant and caring group of Urology residents over the years,” Davis said. “I am grateful for the development of evidence based medicine and look forward to comparative outcome research.”

Davis will receive his award at the American Urological Association Residents Forum in San Francisco, Calif. in May.
