Outstanding Mid-Career Clinician Educator of the Year Award

Jorge Camilo Mora, MD, MPH

The Outstanding Mid-Career Clinician Educator of the Year Award is given to a faculty member for impressive work in geriatrics education. The AGS is pleased this year to recognize Jorge Camilo Mora, MD, MPH, for his extraordinary commitment to building an academic geriatrics medical education program as a founding faculty member of the Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine (FIUHWCOM). Dr. Mora’s three-year longitudinal geriatrics curriculum for second, third, and fourth-year medical students is mandatory for all FIUHWCOM students, and the comprehensive program includes special courses related to patient safety, evidence-based complementary and alternative medicine, and nutrition. His innovative “Mini-Fellowship” program, a two-day intensive course, is a unique and effective way to provide training to clinical faculty, residents, physician assistants and nurses on common geriatric syndromes, and about 220 health care providers have participated in this program to date. With consistently high course evaluations and greater education efforts throughout his community as a lecturer at various South Florida institutions, Dr. Mora’s deep commitment to geriatrics education is celebrated by colleagues, students, and mentees.
