Drs. Daphne Lo and John Newman Nominated for “Best Clinician Mentor” by MSTAR Students

Each summer the UCSF Division of Geriatrics hosts the Medical Student Training in Research (MSTAR) program for medical students after their first year of medical school. UCSF is always a popular site for this program because of our tremendous teachers. This year Daphne Lo, MD and John Newman, MD, PhD were selected by the students for the “Best Clinician Mentor Award.” The students wrote:

Dr. Lo drove me on a Home Based Primary Care (HBPC) visit in the Tenderloin and taught me about the HBPC model, allowed me to assist with/interview and gave me exposure to problems low-income SF residents deal with.

Dr. Newman showed us the Acute Care for Elders (ACE) unit and he had us watch how he interacted with 2 patients on the unit. Afterwards, we were allowed to participate in the assessment and plan. I felt like part of the team! He was very encouraging and a great teacher!

Congratulations Daphne and John!
