The Cooke Award for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning was established in 2007 to recognize outstanding scholarly works presented at Education Showcase.

All submissions to Education Showcase were eligible for these awards, which are accompanied by a certificate and honorarium. Top-scoring projects were nominated for the award following a blinded peer review of all abstract submissions. Award winners were determined by a ballot in which Scholarship Committee members ranked the blinded abstracts, excluding those in which they were involved.

2018 Recipients

  • Clarice Nguyen, MS4, Dr. George Sawaya and Dr. Ari Hoffman for their work: Effect of cost exposure on medical students’ preferred mammography screening strategies: how should we teach high value care?
  • Jason Parad, MS3 and Dr. Denise Connor for their work: Characterizing Diagnostic Reasoning in the UCSF Pre-Clerkship Curriculum

Each received a certificate of achievement and first authors received an honorarium.
