Dr. Liebert Selected for Teaching Award

July 15, 2020

Dr. Cara Liebert has been selected as one of the recipients of the “Arthur L. Bloomfield Award in Recognition of Excellence in the Teaching of Clinical Medicine.” This award is given for excellence in clinical teaching.

One student wrote:

Dr. Liebert is an excellent educator who really went above and beyond to involve students in surgery. I really appreciated the chance to go to Dublin clinic with her, as she gave tailored advice and suggestions after each patient visit. She even took the time to sit down with me to go over my notes the following day, and I found that to be an incredible learning opportunity. She also gave very helpful advice and frameworks that helped me with the rotation overall. I think her mentorship was crucial in helping me improve during the clerkship, because I had a better idea of what I needed to work on.

Dr. Liebert graduated from Stanford's General Surgery Residency Program in 2018 and joined the faculty at the VA Palo Alto as a Clinical Instructor.
