SwedishAmerican OB/GYN Dr. William Cunningham Receives Award from UIC Rockford Medical Student Council

SwedishAmerican OB/GYN Dr. William Cunningham has been awarded the Faculty and Staff Aureus Award for the month of September from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford Medical Student Council. The award was based on nominations by individual medical students.

UIC Rockford recognizes great faculty and staff members who go the “extra mile” to help students. The award was developed as a way for students to say “thank you” and to honor the winners for inspiring the students with their knowledge, character and selflessness to help them become better students and future physicians.

One nomination read, “Dr. Cunningham deserves this recognition for his excellent teaching and receptiveness to his students. He goes out of his way to explain topics to his students and his bedside manner is something we can all strive to embrace. UIC is lucky to have him as a teaching partner.”
