Andrew Alspaugh, MD, and Saumil Chudgar, MD, MS, have been recognized with Golden Apple Awards by the Duke School of Medicine medical students.

The Golden Apple Awards are the highest teaching awards presented by the Duke University School of Medicine student body to recognize outstanding dedication to medical student education.

Awardees are selected first by open nomination, then by a vote of the student body. Three awards are given each year: one each to a member of the preclinical (basic science) faculty, clinical faculty, and clinical house staff.

Dr. Alspaugh, professor of medicine (Infectious Diseases) and molecular genetics and microbiology, was selected in the basic science category, and Dr. Chudgar, associate professor of medicine (General Internal Medicine), was selected in the clinical faculty category.
