Dr. Falcone Recognized for His Commitment
to Medical Education

Dr. John L. Falcone

A champion of medical education and a patient advocate, clinical faculty member John L. Falcone, MD, MS, was recently recognized for his tremendous contributions as a surgical educator with the Association for Surgical Education Linnea Hauge, PhD Promising Educational Scholar Award. In addition, he has been selected to receive a University of Louisville Gratis Faculty Teaching Award.

At the University of Louisville Department of Surgery, Dr. Falcone has been an integral part of our teaching faculty in the community rotation at Owensboro, KY. The hospital in Owensboro has a regular rotation of general surgical residents who are actively mentored and trained in a comprehensive, community surgical experience. As many academic institutions now lack a meaningful community hospital rotation, Dr. Falcone’s leadership of that program has been invaluable to the education of our surgical residents. His teaching evaluations from both the medical students who participate in that rotation as well as our surgical residents are always excellent.
