A consultant from University Hospitals of North Midlands has been awarded the Keele University School of Medicine ‘Clinical Teacher of the Year’ award.

Dr Ranjan Sanyal, UHNM Consultant in Stroke Medicine won the prestigious award after being nominated by Keele Medical students for his inspirational and excellent contribution and support to student learning.

Dr Ranjan Sanyal, Clinical Teacher of the Year, said: “I am delighted to receive the award for the clinical teacher of the year 2022-23. I want to thank all the students who have nominated me for the award for last 10 years. I want to take the opportunity to thank all the staff for their hard work to run the teaching programme smoothly and effectively. This award will help me to carry on providing the high quality teaching and I hope that students will continue to enjoy my teaching.”

The awards provide a valuable opportunity for medical students to show their appreciation for the teaching they receive while on placement at UHNM.

Fidelma O'Mahony, UHNM Hospital Dean for Keele Medical School, said: “The Clinical teacher award has been running for eleven Years.  Keele students are invited to vote for clinicians whose teaching has been highly valued. Nomination numbers are very high and cover all specialities and grades of clinicians. This has provided invaluable positive feedback to all those nominated along with the winners and runners up, all of whom receive a certificate for their teaching portfolio and appraisal. Going forward we will expand the process to include nominations from physician associate students.”

The Clinical Teacher of the Year Runners Up, Dr Ruth Kinston, Mr Nicholas Neal and Mr Ghaleb Goussous also received certificates and were acknowledged for their dedication and support to students.
