EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Terri Nordin, M.D., program director of the Mayo Clinic Family Medicine Residency Program at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, has been named the Mayo Clinic Health System Family Medicine Teacher of the Year by the Mayo Fellows Association.
Nominees are submitted and voted on by residents and fellows of departments across Mayo Clinic. Winners are selected for their dedication to resident teaching, going above and beyond regular duties, and serving as mentors for young physicians in training.
“I have a passion for teaching and coaching resident physicians to become thoughtful, exceptional care providers,” says Dr. Nordin. “I feel blessed that our current residents feel I am successfully helping them develop. Part of what motivates me to do the hard work of teaching is the combination of our enthusiastic, gifted faculty and the sparks of new understanding the residents experience as they grow. I also love learning things the residents have to teach me.”
Dr. Nordin is the founding director of the Family Medicine Residency Program in Eau Claire, which began with five resident physicians in 2017. An additional five resident physicians were added in 2018, and five more will join in June 2019.
“Dr. Nordin is passionate about providing and teaching the art of family medicine,” says Mark Deyo-Svendsen, M.D., chair of Family Medicine in northwest Wisconsin. “Her caring is shared with people of all ages and stages, from birth to the end of life. She brings her experience and her joy in family-centered maternity care to Chippewa Valley residents, and is leading the development of a new generation of physicians who share her vision of quality and service to others.”
Dr. Nordin received her award on April 4 at the 50th Annual Awards Celebration in Rochester, Minnesota.
