Dr. Mary Beth Poston, associate professor of clinical internal medicine at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, recently received the Clinical Educator of the Year award at the Southern Society for General Internal Medicine regional meeting in New Orleans.
The award recognizes excellence in teaching and research in general internal medicine. Award winners must demonstrate excellence as a general internal medicine educator in the clinical and nonclinical settings and present examples of excellence in scholarly research.
Poston, who was nominated for the award by two general internal medicine resident physicians, plays an important role in educating future physicians at the USC School of Medicine. She teaches preclinical courses to first- and second-year medical students and supervises third- and fourth-year students involved in clinical rotations. She lends her expertise in developing and teaching ultrasound curriculum. She also supervises medical residents in the department of internal medicine.
A 1999 graduate of the USC School of Medicine, Poston completed her medical residency at Palmetto Health Richland Hospital and a fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina. She joined the faculty at USC in 2004.
