Reza Manesh, assistant professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine, was recently awarded the Jeremiah A. Barondess Fellowship in Clinical Transaction by the New York Academy of Medicine. The fellowship aims to enhance the clinical skills of physicians in training by supporting junior faculty in internal medicine and focusing on innovative approaches to educating medical students, training residents and encouraging the development of faculty with special interest and expertise in education in the clinical transaction.
In 2003, Jeremiah A. Barondess, M.D., president of the New York Academy of Medicine, led a successful program on "Enhancing Education for the Clinical Transaction." To honor the visionary role of Barondess, the New York Academy of Medicine established the Jeremiah A. Barondess Fellowships to perpetuate his dedication to the clinical transaction by inviting both clinical faculty and medical students to participate in an ongoing program designed to preserve the integrity of the patient-physician relationship in the face of continuing change in the practice of medicine.
