Dr Fariba Mohtashami Honoured at the University of British Columbia, Faculty of Medicine “Awards Reception”
October 3, 2019.
Dr Fariba Mohtashami, has been awarded the 2019 Award for Excellence in Community Practice Teaching.
The citation for this Award reads: “Dr Mohtashami’s impact in her local community is unparalleled. She practices in Langley Hospital, which has not historically been a teaching site for our department. Her practice focuses on minimally invasive gynaecologic surgery, which is rarely available at such a community hospital. Bringing such unique surgical skills to a community hospital is noteworthy, but she exceeded this by creating an elective in gynaecologic surgery that has become the most sought after by residents. She has elevated the level of surgical education in our Province, by helping students to acquire surgical skills, knowledge and judgement, but also ensuring the competency of her fellow clinician educators.”
Dr. Mohtashami practiced at Langley Memorial Hospital for eight years between 2012 to 2019, where the Department of OBGYN Technicity Index increased from 67% in 2012 to 93% in 2016, among the highest in Canada.
