15 November 2018

A senior clinician has been awarded a prestigious teaching excellence award for inspiring the next generation of medical students. 

Dr Sam Nayrouz, Director of Clinical Studies and Consultant Psychiatrist at West London NHS Trust and Hon Senior Lecturer at Imperial College School of Medicine has been awarded the coveted ‘Imperial Medical School Teaching Excellence Award’.

Dr Nayrouz received his award last night  at an annual prize giving ceremony at Imperial College, London.

The award was in recognition of his role, as the Trust’s Director of Clinical Studies, in planning and delivering high quality teaching and training to Imperial undergraduate students during their psychiatric placements across the Trust. He was also recognised for his excellent personal teaching to Imperial students placed in Ealing.

This is the second time Dr Nayrouz has received this award.  He originally won it in 2011.

Dr Nayrouz said: “I am really pleased to receive this award again and am proud of all my colleagues for working so hard and doing an excellent job of delivering teaching and training to the undergraduates.”

Jose Romero-Urcelay, Trust Medical Director said: “I am delighted to see Dr Nayrouz being recognised for his work providing a consistently high quality teaching and training. This ensures Imperial students get the most out of their placements within the Trust and gives them a firm foundation for their future career within healthcare to flourish.”
