This award is offered to faculty who exhibit a strong commitment to teaching while serving as a role model to residents, students, and colleagues. In nominating Dr. Nelson, Dr. Mitchell Goldman said, "Dr. Nelson has the appreciation of the residents for his ability to find the delicate balance between autonomy and guidance and convey both his personal qualities as well as his command of the surgical literature and technique to create the all around surgeon."
