Dr Kamal (pictured left), consultant psychiatrist and associate medical director at South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has been recognised in this year’s Clinical Teaching, Excellence and Development Awards for her on-going commitment to student placements.
The certificate of merit was given to Dr Fariha Kamal by the Leeds Institute of Medical Education for continuous development and innovation in medical student teaching and placement programmes at the Trust.
The Clinical Teaching, Excellence and Development Awards take place annually and reward excellence in teaching across the NHS in West Yorkshire and Harrogate.
Fariha has supported over 80 students completing placements with clinical services provided by the Trust, annually for the past two years. As associate medical director, Fariha also regularly hosts lectures and was awarded the clinical excellence award for teaching in 2013 in recognition of her work by the Leeds Institute of Medical Education.
Dr Kamal said: “It feels fantastic to be given this recognition – I am honoured. When I put forward the application I wasn’t sure if I would receive this, but to be recognised for my work with a second award from the Institute is brilliant. I am really pleased to have achieved this.”
Trust chief executive, Stephen Michael OBE said: “I would like to congratulate Fariha for this recognition of her on-going commitment in helping future medical professionals develop their knowledge and skills.”
