George Ellison (Division of Biostatistics) nominated for two awards
It has been informally announced that George Ellison (Division of Biostatistics) was nominated lecturers for the Leeds University Medical Students Representative Council Teacher of the Year award. George Ellison was one of seven nominated lecturers for this wonderful award.
George has also been nominated for the Extra Mile Partnership Award, in particular for the Summer School he set up last year for medical students from a variety of years to attend. A student describes Georges summer school:
George has only been at the Med school for a year or so, and last year he helped a group of 15 students from different years in Medicine with a summer school project. This was a research based project, on completely new data, and out of it we have not just learned different statistical methods of analysing data, but also have been to poster presentations, prepared oral presentations and hopefully in the next month or so will be publishing an article in a peer-reviewed journal. And this is just our group! there were four groups, and he's doing the same again this year.
Two fantastic accolades which we are extremely proud to promote.
