L. Randol Barker

L. Randol Barker, M.D., Sc.M., M.A.C.P.

We are honored to announce that the 2020 recipient of the IEE Martin D. Abeloff Award for Lifetime Achievement in Medical and Biomedical Education is L. Randol (Randy) Barker MD, ScM, MACP. Dr. Barker’s career devotion to medical education begun during his three-year Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar Fellowship at the JHUSOM 1970-1973. His illustrious career includes many educational leadership roles including program development, fostering scholarly careers for clinician educators and teaching trainees and clinician faculty individually and in small groups. During a sabbatical year abroad and in consulting roles throughout the U.S., Dr. Barker extended Johns Hopkins faculty development programs to numerous trainees and colleagues. Dr. Barker and his team at Bayview developed a model approach to fostering the career development and academic advancement of GIM, and his division was recognized as a world leader in medical education.

The norm for resident supervision is based on his model that incorporates respect for the role of patient including family members), trainee, and preceptor. The JHUSOM Longitudinal Faculty Development Program became his second classroom. This program continues to be unique among the original HRSA-supported FDPs in its major focus on longitudinal learning in small groups. He has been an accomplished mentor to numerous faculty, residents and learners, receiving the Department of Medicine David M. Levine Excellence in Mentoring Award in 2016. Finally, Dr. Barker has been a prolific scholar in medical education and primary care, one of the first medical educators promoted to full professor at Johns Hopkin. Dr. Barker was a personal friend, and medical school classmate, of Martin (Marty) Abeloff. Like Dr. Abeloff, Dr. Barker is true gentleman, scholar, educator and role model. We congratulate him on his award.

Erica N. Johnson

Erica N. Johnson, M.D.

Dr. Erica N. Johnson is the recipient of the 2020 IEE Award for Outstanding Achievement in Teaching for 10 or More Years. Prior to coming to Johns Hopkins, Dr. Johnson won multiple teaching awards during her eleven years as a physician in the US Army.

In addition to her program leadership, Dr. Johnson is an accomplished and expert teacher. Her teaching excellence spans weekly housestaff “morning report” conferences, clinical teaching rounds on the inpatient general internal medicine wards, and the infectious diseases inpatient consultation service. In her teaching, Dr. Johnson strives to inspire her “learners to embrace curiosity, engage in self-reflection as part of their developmental practice, and to be empowered as advocates for their patients and for better systems of health.” As stated by one of her nominators, Dr. Johnson “is the rare educator who is truly invested in developing outstanding physician citizens who will be leaders and effect change wherever they go.” We are thrilled to recognize her with this honor.
 

Less than Ten Years on Faculty

Gigi Y. Liu

Gigi Y. Liu, M.D., M.Sc.

Dr. Gigi Y. Liu is the recipient of the 2020 IEE Award for Outstanding Achievement in Teaching for less than 10 Years. Dr. Liu completed her internal medicine training in the Osler Training Program in 2014. She has since developed a point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) curriculum that does not stand alone, but rather is combined with physical examination skill building and incorporates a rigorous ultrasound portfolio evaluation system. For several years, she has taught this curriculum to residents at both Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, and over the past two years she has taught, spoken at, or led over 25 POCUS courses, workshops, and lectures regionally and nationally.

Comments from learners include “I don’t believe I’ve ever been taught anything as well as Gigi taught us POCUS;” “Gigi is so dedicated to and passionate about teaching the application of POCUS to residents. She goes above and beyond to ensure our education is thorough, well-rounded, and grounded in pathophysiology. She has put in an incredible effort to build a curriculum that reflects what we need to know as internists and incorporates our feedback. Her enthusiasm is contagious and we are lucky to have her as an educator and mentor!” In her work, she strives to combine “physical visualization, multi-sensory experience, and process deconstruction” in a digestible way. She has done so with great success, and we are delighted to honor her with this award.
 

Part-Time Faculty

Monica Mix

Monica Mix, M.D., M.P.H.

Dr. Monica Mix is the recipient of the 2020 IEE Award for Outstanding Achievement in Teaching for part-time faculty. Dr. Mix is a graduate of the first class of the combined Johns Hopkins Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Urban Health Residency Program. She has been part of the residency program’s leadership since 2014, leading ambulatory education for the residents in their continuity clinic at East Baltimore Medical Center.

Dr. Mix has consistently received high marks for her teaching from students and residents, who describe her as a model for patient-centered care, humility, and co-learning. They describe her as thorough and also respectful of the time constraints of patient care and teaching in the outpatient setting. Residents report that she pushes them to consider additional diagnoses and seek out supplementary resources when needed in a way that prepares them for a future practice of lifelong self-directed learning. They also note that she respects their autonomy while still supporting them and providing clinical insights appropriate to their level of training. In addition, they describe her as deeply interested in their lives outside of the clinic and medicine. In the words of one recent graduate of the program, “The care for her patients was matched only by her care for her learners.” Another current resident writes “Dr. Mix is quite simply one of the best educators I have encountered during my entire medical education.” We are thrilled to recognize her with this award.

Leadership and Mentoring Award

2020

Nisha Chandra-Strobos

Nisha Chandra-Strobos, M.D.

We congratulate Nisha Chandra-Strobos, MD, recipient of this year’s IEE Leadership and Mentoring Award. Dr. Chandra-Strobos joined Hopkins as an Osler house officer in 1975 and quickly began distinguishing herself as an educational leader and mentor. Whether standing shoulder to shoulder in the lab with a mentee to correctly teach and advise on experimental techniques or, guiding countless young fellows on matters of writing, clinical excellence, interviewing skill building, and practical matters of dealing with life, she takes great care with her mentees. Not only does she mentor physician colleagues, but she also pours the same passion into mentoring administrative staff to help advance educational pursuits. Dr. Chandra-Strobos’ mentees include those in cardiology, pulmonary medicine, emergency medicine, anesthesia, hospital medicine, infectious diseases, nephrology and neurology. When she chaired a national committee at the AHA, she went on to become the lifelong mentor to several on her committee who are now national leaders and members of the National Academy of Science. IEE is very pleased to grant this award to an extraordinarily accomplished colleague.

Mary Leppert, M.D., B.Ch., and Joyce Harrison, M.D. for KKI-NECT

We congratulate Mary Leppert, MB, BCh, and Joyce Harrison, MD, recipients of this year’s IEE Educational Innovation Award, for development of KKI-NECT (Kennedy Krieger Institute Connect). This is the first developmental and behavioral ECHO that meets a pressing public health need using technology-enabled collaborative learning to increase access to high-quality specialty care in local communities. Primary care providers from western Maryland, the eastern shore, school-based clinics and West Virginia learn about the identification and management of children with developmental and behavioral issues. The program has been lauded as being fundamental to regional and rural practice. One said, “I have found the collaborative invaluable. Prior to KKI-NECT, children in my practice have been on waiting lists for up to a year, or needed to travel 2 to 3 hours for consultative service. KKI-NECT is an innovative solution to the pediatric neuro-developmental and behavioral workforce shortage.” Our congratulation to this impressive team!

Educational Program Award

2020

GIMboree

We are excited to present the IEE Education Program Award to GIMboree. GIMboree is a medical education innovation designed to foster community, mentorship and joy within primary care residents and faculty. The program was started in 2018 by Dr. Deborah Freeland and her mentor Dr. Paul O'Rourke and has been a success from the start. GIMboree sessions have been held monthly and involve dinner, literature review and most importantly reflecting on clinic experiences. Participants have also noted that discussion of faculty members’ career paths has been a highlight of these gatherings as it allows the residents to have improved insight of the individual. GIMboree has been presented at local meetings and was the recipient of a competitive ACGME medical innovation award. Congratulations to all involved in the success of GIMboree!
