Quinn Capers IV, MD: Ohio State College of Medicine 2019 Professor of the Year 

 
Capers.jpgThis year’s winner of The Ohio State University College of Medicine’s Professor of the Year award is overdue for the honor, according to his student nominators.

“This amazing, intelligent, caring and generous man has been with us – fighting for us, supporting us, cheering us – since before day one,” wrote one student.

Quinn Capers IV, MD, dean for Admissions and professor of Medicine at the College of Medicine and program director of Interventional Cardiology in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Wexner Medical Center, receives the year’s highest teaching award given within the College of Medicine, marking a career of excellence in medical education.


Nominations from graduating medical students lauded Dr. Capers, who received his own medical degree from The Ohio State University in 1991, as a role model, not just as a doctor, but also as a human.

“Dr. Capers is the reason we are all here, and he gives 110 percent for the College of Medicine and the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, day in, day out,” wrote one student. “We are forever grateful.”

Many students said Dr. Capers’ efforts to diversify the medical workforce was inspirational.

“Dr. Capers makes us better by forcing us to confront our biases, ensuring we are providing the best care to all patients regardless of their ethnic background,” says a nominator.

“His lectures on implicit bias make me think twice in clinical scenarios and hopefully will make me a more just, equitable healthcare provider,” writes another. “He has mentored countless underrepresented minorities and female students in a time that we truly need to diversify the medical field.”

Several students pointed out that, as associate dean of Admissions, Dr. Capers was involved with their decision to matriculate at Ohio State.

“And for those of us who received a personal acceptance phone call from him,” writes a student, “there’s a memory that isn’t easily forgotten. His genuine dedication to our individual journeys is undeniable.”

Dr. Capers proved a memorable cardiology lecturer, as well.

“His cardiology lectures during LSI Part I are constantly quoted by classmates, and he teaches in a way that is clear and concise,” writes a student.

This is far from the first award for Dr. Capers, who has also been honored with the Ohio State Distinguished Diversity Enhancement Award, PrimaryOne Health’s Healthcare Justice Award and a Laennec Clinician/Educator Award from the American Heart Association, as well as designations as a Best Doctor in American, a Castle Connolly Regional Top Doctor and a Columbus Business First Outstanding Diversity Champion – in addition to numerous other medical teaching awards.

As one effusive nomination ends: “Dr. Capers has made the College of Medicine, its students and the hospital system a better place.”
