OC alumni receive awards from OU College of Medicine

May 08, 2017

Alumni from Oklahoma Christian University won three awards at the annual Aesculapian Awards Banquet for the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.

Alumna Dr. Molly Hill won the award as best teacher by the second-year class at OU. Hill also taught biology at OC. Alumna Dr. Mindy Cail won for favorite community preceptor; Cail is the daughter of retired OC professor James Cail. In addition, alumnus Dr. Hunter Rhodes was nominated for best resident teacher. Rhodes will be the OU Medical Center’s chief resident in internal medicine next year.

The college’s Student Council recognizes teaching excellence and peer achievement at the event. Students select faculty whom they have identified as distinguished teachers. These faculty are practicing doctors who also teach in the College of Medicine.

The individual classes from both the Oklahoma City campus and the Tulsa School of Community Medicine nominated and selected the faculty for these awards. The same classes from both campuses also nominated and selected peers for the Podalirian Award that recognizes student commitment, leadership and advocacy on the part of patients and fellow students.
