Anesthesiology resident Andrey Bilko honored for exceptional teaching

Andrey Bilko, MD, a PGY-4 trainee in Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center’s Anesthesiology Residency, was honored in January 2020 as part of the Exceptional Moments in Teaching program of Penn State Health and Penn State College of Medicine.

Dr. Bilko, himself a College of Medicine graduate, was described by a current student as a pleasure to work with.

The student wrote, “He ensured that I was always involved with the cases of the day. He would go out of his way to explain his rationale for decisions. He also reached out the night prior with special topics to cover that helped me to be more proactive in the discussion. He is terrific with patients, and I consider him as a role model to emulate as I progress in my own residency journey.”

Penn State College of Medicine’s Office for a Respectful Learning Environment recognizes exceptional faculty, residents and fellows with the monthly “Exceptional Moments in Teaching” program. Each month, one faculty member and one resident/fellow are highlighted for their contributions. College of Medicine students are invited to submit narratives about faculty members, residents, nurses or any other educators who challenge them and provide an exceptional learning experience using the online nomination form.

The Office for a Respectful Learning Environment fosters an educational community at Penn State College of Medicine in which all learners and educators feel supported, challenged, valued and respected. It serves all learners at the College of Medicine: medical students, graduate students, physician assistant students, residents and fellows.
