Susan Mandel, MD, MPH received the H. Jack Baskin, MD, Endocrine Teaching Award at the AACE 21st Annual Scientific & Clinical Congress in Philadelphia, on May 27, 2012.
The H. Jack Baskin, MD, Endocrine Teaching Award is given to an endocrinologist who has made a profound impact in teaching fellows-in-training and is actively involved in teaching either in a university setting or through AACE.
“I am profoundly honored to receive this award from AACE,” Dr. Mandel said. “To be honored for something about which I am truly passionate, teaching the next generation of endocrinologists is humbling,” she continued. “And to receive an award named for Dr. Baskin, a friend and colleague who was such an innovator of fellow education in thyroid ultrasound, is even more rewarding.”
Currently, Dr. Mandel is the Professor of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Mandel graduated from Harvard University and received her M.D. from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. She joined the Brigham faculty in 1992 and moved to the University of Pennsylvania in 1997 to develop a clinical thyroid program and direct the fellowship program, a position she still holds. At the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Mandel has been committed to training the next generation of endocrinologists in clinical skills and clinical research. She has mentored 35 fellows in clinical endocrinology, including performance of thyroid ultrasound and fine-needle aspiration biopsy, and she has supervised the research programs for 20 endocrine and radiology fellows. Dr. Mandel’s research interests also include thyroid imaging and thyroid disease in pregnancy, and she has presented more than 150 regional, national and international lectures. Her other educational activities include leadership roles or memberships on several key taskforces developing guidelines for clinical care.
