McLean Nominated for the 2008 AAMC Humanism in Medicine Award

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Tom McLean, M.D., associate professor of pediatrics at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, has been nominated for the 2008 Association of American Medical College’s (AAMC) Humanism in Medicine Award.

The recipient of the national 2008 Humanism in Medicine Award, presented by the AAMC through the support of the Pfizer Medical Humanities Initiative (PMHI), will be announced Nov. 1 in Washington, D.C.

The AAMC annually recognizes a medical school faculty physician who illustrates the qualities of a caring and compassionate mentor.

McLean completed his bachelor of science degree at Furman University in South Carolina and received his medical degree at the Medical University of the University of South Carolina.
