The UW Department of Medicine has awarded Pullman physician, Stephanie M. Fosback, M.D. with the Lifetime WWAMI Excellence in Teaching Faculty Award. Fosback is the youngest faculty member ever to have received this prestigious award.

William Bremner, M.D., chair, UW Department of Medicine, and Douglas Paauw, M.D., director, UW Medicine Student Programs presented Fosback with the award, which is given to teaching faculty in the Department of Medicine who have earned four WWAMI Excellence in Teaching Faculty Awards throughout their careers. Fosback received her fourth award this past summer. Award recipients are chosen by medical student nomination and committee selection from among more than 325 clinical faculty members in the UW Department of Medicine across the five-state WWAMI region.

In addition to her Lifetime Award Fosback was honored for her enthusiasm and dedication to teaching and training medical students and residents as they prepare to become the next generation of physicians.

Originally from Colville, WA, Fosback works as an internal medicine primary care physician at Palouse Medical, and as a part-time hospitalist at Pullman Regional Hospital. She became a UW faculty physician in 2011.
