A highly respected and experienced ophthalmic consultant surgeon at QEH has been recognised for his outstanding teaching. 

It is particularly satisfying for Michael Kouroupis that the nomination for the award has come from his students.

The Excellent Teaching Awards were set up four years ago to allow students to recognise outstanding teaching they’ve received from any clinician. 



Mr Kouroupis has been working for the Trust for more than 15 years. He said:

“My award is the result of a team effort.

“I am grateful to Mr Balapathiran Baskar and Mr Robert Florance, who facilitate the undergraduate teaching for the Cambridge medical students. 

"I wish to thank all the nurses and doctors in the eye clinic who are supporting students.”

He's the sub-dean for undergraduate teaching at Norwich Medical School, and honorary senior lecturer at University of East Anglia. 

He has completed a master’s degree in Clinical Education with distinction and believes that this postgraduate qualification supports his role as an educator in the Trust. He even recently contributed a chapter in an international book publication regarding Innovation in Health Informatics.

The awards are supported by the Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine and Higher Education East of England.
