The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) would like to congratulate the 2021 recipient of the FAER Mentoring Excellence in Research Award, Joseph P. Mathew, MD, MHSc, MBA, FASE; Jerry Reves, MD, Professor of Anesthesiology and Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology at Duke University School of Medicine.
The FAER Mentoring Excellence in Research Award recognizes the value of outstanding mentors in anesthesiology. In the letters of support submitted on behalf of Dr. Mathew, he was commended as recognizing that success in research can often mean different things to different people and reflecting this in the mentorship he offers; providing insights to mentees and others on how to approach research questions in innovative ways; as well as offering tangible mentorship to mentees in keeping with the philosophy of Dr. Mathew’s own mentor, the late Dr. Paul Barash. Dr. Mathew is a perfect example of the value a mentor can offer to those around them and FAER is proud to present him this award.
“Having a good mentor is critical to the pursuit of success and significance in both our careers and in our lives. Mentoring, in turn, is our opportunity to invest in the lives of the next generation to enable those we mentor to reach heights we could have never imagined ourselves. I am truly humbled by this award and feel very undeserving of the kind words of nomination or the award. The award is a reflection of those who mentored/invested in me over many years and to that end, I am deeply grateful to Drs. Paul Barash, Jerry Reves, and Mark Newman. I am also grateful for FAER’s dedication to developing the next generation of physician-scientists and want to highlight that supporting FAER’s mission is critical for the long-term success of anesthesiology.”
