Professor David Kane receives Provost Teaching Award 2018

Professor David Kane consultant Rheumatologist at Tallaght University Hospital and Clinical Professor of Rheumatology at Trinity College Dublin, awarded the Provost's Teaching Award 2018 at one of Trintiy College's key award ceremonies of the year.

Professor Kane is a successful medical practitioner who believes that teaching should be embedded within his work and that, in order to provide excellent teaching, one must oneself, continue to learn. To this end, he ensures that his teaching is interactive and inclusive.

His approach to curriculum design and classroom delivery is underpinned by a clear and visionary view of the needs of the medical profession and of the relationship between education and the practice of medicine. Most notably, he has spearheaded a radical transformation of education in Trinity in relation to Musculoskeletal Diseases.

Student nominators extolled 'his passion, dedication, commitment, and inspiration' as well as his generosity with his time.

A staff nominator, with over 25 years extensive experience in designing and delivering medical curricula in Ireland, the UK and the US, says 'it is my strongly held view that David Kane is one of the finest medical teachers that it has been my privilege to work with' .
