Awards

Congratulations Dr. Audrey Shafer!

The Ellis N. Cohen, M.D. Achievement Award was established in 1980 for exceptional performance in teaching, research, clinical care, or administration in honor of Dr. Ellis Cohen, a member of the department who pionerred cutting edge research which led to changes in the design of operating rooms, and who exemplified the idea put forth by humanist physician William Osler that medicine is a “Calling in which your heart will be equally exercised with your head.” Cohen is remembered by his colleagues, friends and relatives as a man of unremitting thoughtfulness, kindness, integrity and respect. The award is the highest honor given by the Department of Anesthesiology, and has been given only 17 times in 28 years. Dr. Audrey Shafer is the third women to receive this honor.  The award was initiated as a means of recognizing each year the faculty member who, in the opinion of his/her peers, had made the most significant contribution to the department. This could be in any sphere including, for example, teaching, clinical care, research or administration.
