Dr. Susan DeJoy, Midwifery Education Program faculty and Chief of the Division of Midwifery and Community Health, was awarded the Excellence in Teaching Award by the American College of Nurse Midwives Foundation.
Impact on learning
This is an award given annually to a faculty member who demonstrates excellence in academic education, clinical education or research; who has contributed to a positive learning environment; has supported and enhanced basic and lifelong learning skills; and exemplifies the highest standards of midwifery practice.
One Excellence in Teaching award is given for each accredited Midwifery Education Program in the US. Midwifery students nominate a faculty member who has had a significant impact upon their learning. Susan Dejoy was nominated for this award by the Baystate Midwifery Education Program class of 2015 from a clinical faculty of approximately 30 midwives.
The award was conferred during the Awards Ceremony held June 30 at the ACNM National Meeting in National Harbor, MD.
