Majid Sadigh, M.D., associate professor of medicine, was nominated by medical students for the Humanism in Medicine Award presented annually by the Association of American Medical Colleges. The award recognizes a medical school faculty physician who exemplifies the qualities of a caring and compassionate mentor in the teaching and advising of medical students. The candidate must also possess the desirable personal qualities necessary to the practice of patient-centered medicine. Although Sadigh was not named this year’s recipient, he received a plaque in honor of his nomination. In addition to his duties at Waterbury Hospital, Sadigh directs the Makerere University-Yale University collaboration that sends medical students and physicians to Mulago Hospital in Uganda for rotations. The students wrote in their nominating statement that Sadigh “has been a source of inspiration and guidance to the many medical students he has encountered, both on this continent and on continents far away.”
