Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award Goes to Mostow and Elsheikh 

 

​The Arnold P. Gold Foundation presents the 2019 Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Awards to Bakri Elsheikh, MBBS, associate professor of Neurology, and fourth-year medical student Jacqueline Mostow, MD. These awards were presented during the College of Medicine graduation convocation Thursday, May 2.

Promoting the integration of humanism in the delivery of care to patients and their families, the Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Awards are given annually to one Ohio State faculty member and one fourth-year medical student who demonstrate outstanding compassion in the delivery of care and who show exemplary respect for patients, their families and healthcare colleagues. Faculty criteria for this prestigious award include someone who:
  •    Demonstrates compassion and empathy in the delivery of care to patients
  •    Serves as a role model; illustrates professional behavior by example
  •    Exhibits enthusiasm and skill in professional and personal interactions with students
  •    Shows respect for everyone
  •    Demonstrates cultural sensitivity in working with patients and family members of diverse backgrounds
  •    Understands patients’ need for interpretation of complex medical diagnoses and treatments and makes an effort to ensure patient comprehension; shows respect for the patients’ viewpoint
  •    Adheres to professional and ethical standards

Dr. Elsheikh obtained his medical degree from the University of Khartoum in Sudan where he started his training in internal medicine. He then received a graduate medical degree from the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom. He completed neurology training overseas prior to joining The Ohio State University in 2000. At Ohio State, he completed his neurology residency and fellowship in clinical neurophysiology/neuromuscular medicine. He serves as director of the EMG Laboratory, Muscular Dystrophy Association clinics and the Neuromuscular Medicine and Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship programs. He has received several teaching awards and compassionate patient care awards and has been named a Top Doctor and Best Doctors in America.

Dr. Mostow attended Oberlin College. She loves nurturing communities, and has been actively engaged in medical school as well as in the greater Columbus community. Her involvement spans from helping start and teach a course for medical students on advocacy to volunteering at urban farms. Jackie is excited to go into family medicine, where the culture is seeing the whole patient — including the environmental and social factors that impact people’s lives. In addition to working with under-resourced communities, she looks forward to bringing young people under-represented in medicine into the field.

Congratulations, Dr. Elsheikh and Dr. Mostow!
