Wenatchee Valley Medical Center physician David Daniel, MD, has been selected as a recipient of the 2012 Richard M. Tucker WWAMI Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award, which recognizes enthusiasm and dedication in providing outstanding teaching and service to medical students through the University of Washington Department of Medicine.
A key factor in Dr. Daniel’s selection was the glowing feedback he received from students he has taught and mentored. One student said that Dr. Daniel “sets a high standard for clerkship directors,” while another student added that Dr. Daniel was “very accessible and took a lot of time to teach.” Undoubtedly they would concur with the praise from another student who noted that Dr. Daniel “went out of his way to make my internal medicine clerkship in Wenatchee a fantastic experience.”
Along with serving as a clinical associate professor and WWAMI site coordinator for the University of Washington School of Medicine, Dr. Daniel is also an alumnus, having earned his medical degree from the institution in 1986. He joined Wenatchee Valley Medical Center in 1992, and is currently part of the Pulmonary Medicine Department. In addition to being board certified in pulmonary disease, he is also board certified in internal medicine (both through the American Board of Internal Medicine).
