A DOCTOR at Barnsley Hospital has been given an award for his 'exceptional' teaching of medical students for the second year in a row.

Dr Michael Moussa, associate specialist in paediatrics, was presented with the 'outstanding clinical teacher award' at the University of Sheffield's Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry, and Health Graduation Ceremony.

The award is voted for by medical students at the university and Dr Moussa won the vote for providing the highest quality teaching to students placed at Barnsley Hospital - one of the university's associate teaching hospitals.

"I'm delighted and honoured to be granted this award again," Dr Moussa said.

Students said Dr Moussa was inspiring, had supported them through close engagement and was an excellent role model, enabling them to feel part of the medical team. They said he creates an environment in which students felt empowered to engage with medicine.

Dr Jugnu Mahajan, medical director at Barnsley Hospital, said: "This is a fantastic achievement and we would all like to congratulate Dr Moussa. To win the award once is difficult but to win it twice in a row is something quite special.

"Dr Moussa is an inspiration to his students and has shown he consistently provides teaching of the highest quality."

Barnsley Hospital provides placements to approximately 434 student doctors a year and has consistently got excellent feedback on its quality of teaching.
