UT physician wins prestigious award for Neurology work

The University of Toledo and one of its faculty members is being recognized nationally for critical research and advising in the neurology department.

Dr. Imran Ali, associate dean for medical education, professionalism and diversity, and the chair of the Executive Curriculum Committee, recently received an award from the American Academy of Neurology for his outstanding performance in neurology clerkship.

“Imran is the consummate neurology clerkship director,” said Ralph Jozefowicz, MD, FAAN, who recommended Ali for the award. “He has made the University of Toledo neurology clerkship arguably the best clinical clerkship at the university, and one of the highest rated neurology clerkships in the nation.”

According to the August 2012 AAN News “63 percent of the graduating Toledo medical students rated the neurology clerkship as excellent, compared with the national average of 33 percent, and Toledo medical students have beat the national mean on the shelf exam for the past five years,” as just some of Ali’s accomplishments at UT.

The AAN News also pointed out that Ali has “made numerous improvements to the clerkship program, from incorporating AAN core curriculum to assigning students to outpatient clinics to using technologies for teaching and assessment.”
