Congratulations to Ninah Clegg-Johnson, DO ’17, on winning the “Phase 2 Teaching Excellence Award” at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) Faculty Award Ceremony. The 2017 alumna is now an assistant internal medicine and pediatrics clinical instructor at the University of Illinois Chicago.
Dr. Clegg-Johnson teaches medical students and residents on the inpatient floors and in the clinic where she directs at clinic. She has been at UIC for four years of residency, one chief year, and two years as a hospitalist.
Dr. Clegg-Johnson was honored for her work in internal medicine clerkship, also known as clinical rotation. Clerkships are a form of training for medical students to practice their area of study in real-life situations under the supervision of established physicians.
Earning this award confirmed her line of work. She said, “By earning this award, it is nice to see that good bedside education is awarded and celebrated. I try to include my medical students in my service so that they get a wonderful clinical experience that prepares them for the future.”
With Dr. Clegg-Johnson's Marian University education setting her up for success, she is now a transformational leader helping the next generation of medical students. Best wishes!
