October 30, 2015

Congratulations to Royal Perth Hospital Consultant Endocrinologist and Geriatrician Dr Ricky Arenson who has been named the 2015 Western Australian Clinical Educator of the Year.

Nominated by fellow doctors, Dr Arenson received the highly competitive award as recognition for his significant contribution to the teaching and mentoring of junior doctors.

Dr Arenson said he thoroughly enjoys being a part of the medical student journey, from an undergraduate, through to completion of their postgraduate studies.

“I strongly believe that all doctors should maintain a healthy work-life balance,” Dr Arenson said.

“This should be fostered in the workplace, teaching junior doctors the importance of their physical and emotional welfare.”

The recipient of Clinical Educator of the Year Award is a person who goes above and beyond bedside teaching expectations. Mentoring 35-60 students per year, Dr Arenson is a strong advocate for junior doctors work conditions and has developed an innovative training course to support medical students through their training and exams.
