Kaddurah to receive MSU-CHM volunteer teaching award

One Hurley pediatric faculty member – known for his clear, patient teaching – just learned that medical students appreciate his work.

Ahmad Kasim Kaddurah MD, a Hurley pediatric neurologist, was selected to receive the Volunteer Faculty Teaching Award from the 2016 graduating class of Michigan State University College of Human Medicine-Flint Campus. He is an associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics and Human Development at MSU-CHM.

“I am really honored and humbled,” said Kaddurah in an email. “I am proud to be part of a team of faculty members who are all amazing educators and deserve to be awarded for that.”

This award is to be presented to him during the MSU-CHM Commencement Ceremony May 14, 2016, at the Breslin Student Events Center on the main campus of MSU.

Each year, the graduating MSU-CHM class is asked to nominate faculty who are excellent teachers and role models, said Kathy Assiff MA, director of student programs and community administrator on the Flint Campus of MSU-CHM. After the nominations are received, the students vote to select the winner. Kaddurah received the highest number of votes from the 2016 class of 37 students, who rotate at the three teaching hospitals that make up the MSU-CHM Flint Campus.

Kaddurah is part of the core faculty of the Hurley Pediatric Residency Training Program and is director of Hurley’s Department of Pediatric Neurology, Pediatric EEG Laboratory, and Pediatric Sleep Medicine.
