Congratulations! Center for Clinical Trials PhD student Ian Saldanha wins JHSPH Teaching Assistant award for SECOND TIME
"The most outstanding TA I've ever had! He was always available and exuded a positive attitude!"
"Ian made an incredibly hard class fun and easy. He always had answers to the most challenging questions. He was head and shoulders above ANY other TA I've had (college or grad school)."
"Ian was very knowledgeable about the content of the course. He was liked by all students and even organized and hosted a Jeopardy game during the last week of the course. This put students at ease and the questions were actually a good learning experience. He was very detailed and good in his feedback and constructive criticism of our mid-term papers so that we would improve for our final papers."
Ian was a TA in Introduction to Systematic Reviews in the Summer Institute as well as Systematic Reviews and Meta-analysis in 3rd term. Ian's advisor is Kay Dickersin, the Director of the Center for Clinical Trials. Ian will be presented with a winner's plaque on May 19th at 4pm in Sommer Hall. His student profile is available here.
