August 9, 2018Dr. Russ Guin, a resident with The University of Alabama Family Medicine Residency, received the 2018 Argus Award for Best Resident Educator from the UA School of Medicine. Argus Awards are presented annually to faculty, programs and departments of the School of Medicine. Medical students nominate and vote for professors, courses and course directors who they believe represent the highest standards in excellent education and clinical training. The UA Family Medicine Residency, a three-year program that trains physicians in the specialty of family medicine, is operated by UA’s College of Community Health Sciences. The College also functions as the Tuscaloosa Regional Campus of the School of Medicine in providing clinical education to a portion of third- and fourth-year School of Medicine students. Guin is currently in his third year with the residency. Last year, the Best Resident Educator Award was presented to Dr. Blake DeWitt, who graduated from the UA Family Medicine Residency last year. An awards ceremony will be held Sept. 7 at the UAB Alumni House in Birmingham to honor all 2018 Argus Award winners.
