Physician Robert “Bobby” Padera, HST 030 Human Pathology assistant director, and HST MD and Medical Engineering and Medical Physics (MEMP) alumnus, was one of the recipients of the Donald O'Hara Faculty Prizes for Excellence in Teaching at the 2019 Daniel D. Federman Teaching Awards Ceremony held recently at the Harvard Medical School (HMS).

In addition to Bobby, Dr. Cecil "Pete" Coggins, director emeritus of the HST 110 Renal Pathophysiology course and a member of the HST MD Curriculum Sub Committee, received one of the Special Faculty Prizes for Sustained Excellence in Teaching.

HMS annually bestows teaching awards on its most outstanding teachers, who, through their excellence in teaching, will impact and influence the professional lives of students long after graduation. The awards presented at the teaching award celebration are the medical school’s most visible recognition of the teaching accomplishments of a highly select group of the school's leading medical educators, and reflect, in a small but tangible way, how much teachers are valued by their students and by the school itself.
