Nathan Honored for Length of Service to Division
Muriel Helene Nathan, MD, PhD was recently honored for her exceptional career at the Larner College of Medicine and the UVM Medical Center.
In remarks, Joel Schnure, MD, Director of the Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes, noted that, "For 30 years, Dr. Nathan has been the epitome of the word 'physician' and everything that it entails. She has given exquisite care to her patients, both from an empathetic point of view and from a medical point of view. Her knowledge speaks for itself, but the empathy she has for her patients and the time she spends to comfort them is a standard that we should all try to reach. We often tease her for being on the phone for extended lengths of time, but the result is great patient care--her patients love her and the outcomes speak for themselves. Her ability to be a role model is not limited to her patient care but also extends to her mentoring. She cares about students, residents and fellows, and she spends an inordinate amount of time counseling them and teaching them. If we had to describe a role model for future physicians, Muriel Helene Nathan, MD, PhD would fit that description."
