Neurology resident Joseph Malone honored for exceptional teaching

Joseph Malone, MD, a PGY-3 trainee in Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center’s Neurology Residency, was honored in October 2019 as part of the Exceptional Moments in Teaching program of Penn State Health and Penn State College of Medicine.

Dr. Malone, a current student wrote, “was welcoming to an intimidating service the moment the students arrived. He made sure we felt comfortable with our patients, and when acute events such as a stroke came up through the day, he made sure students understood the process and medicine. He always took time to debrief after an event, and answered any questions students had. He also reserved time every afternoon to teach despite having his own work to do and notes to write.”

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.
