Congratulations to the 2019 IAFP Resident Teacher of the Year
Kimberly Beiting, MD – McGaw Northwestern Family Medicine Residency Humboldt Park
Faculty member Dorothy Dschida, MD describes Dr. Kimberly Beiting as a dynamic and engaging speaker. “Over the last year of her residency she championed a lecture series on the care of the elderly patient. Her sessions were evidence-based, interactive, and entertaining. She strives to connect with her learners and really help them to experience the didactic content in a way that sustains the learning over time.” 
Dr. Beiting led a particularly innovative session in which learners were given-specially designed gloves, glasses and headphones that simulate the sensory changes of aging. “This really helped the learners to understand first-hand what their patients experience every day, and hopefully will allow the residents to connect with their elderly patients with enhanced empathy,” concluded Dschida. The Chicago native graduated from University of Chicago, followed by medical school at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine.  After graduating residency this summer, Beiting is now a Geriatrics Fellow at the University of Chicago.
