Raed Al-Dallow, M.D., was named Mentor of the Year by medical students in SIU School of Medicine.
He was nominated by the class of 2020 and selected from 69 physicians who act as mentors to the students, according to the SIU School of Medicine website. Mentors offer students their first supervised interactions with patients.
His nominator wrote he “has gone above and beyond as a mentor to both teach clinical skills and set an example of humility and respect in his clinic. He … has helped me stay engaged in clinic and has improved my confidence in my clinical skills. … Dr. Al-Dallow is always kind and courteous, treating each person with the dignity and respect that they deserve regardless of how his day is going or how little sleep he got on call the night before."
