Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Erick Hung, MD, has been selected as the recipient of the 2013-2014 Academic Senate Distinction in Teaching Award for faculty at UCSF five years or fewer.  In addition to serving as director of the Adult Psychiatry Residency Training Program since July 2012, Hung actively teaches in the areas of risk assessment, medical education, forensic psychiatry, and ethics and oversees the "Professionalism, Systems and Leadership" didactic module for the residency program. He completed his medical school, psychiatry residency and forensic psychiatry fellowship training at UCSF.

Selected through a peer-reviewed process involving faculty and students from all four schools, the Academic Senate Distinction in Teaching Award is designed to recognize exceptional Senate faculty members who have shown outstanding dedication and skill in teaching over the course of their career. Hung will be recognized by the Academic Senate in a ceremony held later in the spring and by the chancellor during the annual Founders Day Banquet.
