Appelman receives Lifetime Achievement Award for Medical Education

By Elizabeth Walker | 23 September

Henry Appelman, MD awarded the Dean’s Lifetime Achievement Award in Medical Education.

As Dr. Jeff Myers wrote of this special recognition, “This is one of many awards that recognize Henry’s extraordinary contributions as a generous and selfless educator dedicated to the welfare of others.  Earlier this year he received the Harvey Goldman Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rodger Haggitt Gastrointestinal Pathology Society.  In 2013 he was inducted as an inaugural member of the University of Michigan Medical School’s League of Educational Excellence.  He received the Harvey Goldman Distinguished Teaching and Mentoring Award from the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) in 2011 and the H.P. Smith Award for Distinguished Pathology Educator from the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) IN 2006.  And, of course, he has twice (1982, 1991) received the House Officers Teaching Award from trainees in the Department of Pathology.” Within our department and also the greater national Pathology community, Henry’s reputation as a caring, generous, exceptional educator is well known. We are fortunate to have this lifetime achiever within our midst, still working to educate the medical professionals of the future. We offer congratulations for this well deserved honor.

It is of note that since its inception in 2001, Henry Appelman is now the second pathologist to garner this recognition, as Gerald Abrams, MD, Emeritus Professor of Pathology, was awarded this prestigious award in 2002.
