Congratulations to Dejan Draschkow for being selected to receive an Early Career Excellent Teacher Award under the Medical Science's Division's 2021 Teaching Excellence Awards scheme. These awards formally recognise the excellent contributions to teaching and/or supervision made by individual members of the Collegiate University (Oxford) and NHS staff within the Division who are within the first five years of their career as a University/NHS teacher.
The Medical Sciences Division will officially present the award in October 2022.
Teaching is a big part of my life and receiving such an acknowledgment feels really personal. Investing time into teaching is extremely rewarding with such inspiring and brilliant students. I hope I can continue not to stand in the way while these students accomplish mind-bending things. My hope is to be able to pay forward all the inspiring teaching and mentorship that I have received in my life. That's going to take a while...
