2020 Faculty of the Year (Education)

Rika Bajra (Family Medicine)

Rika has been at the forefront of tele-medical education for several years and has been a pioneer in teaching this content at Stanford.  When the COVID pandemic hit, her expertise was immediately put into action, and educators from all levels of teaching and all disciplines were eager to collaborate with her, from pre-clerkship instruction to fellowship level and practicing clinicians.  With her visionary yet pragmatic approach, she has seamlessly integrated this content for all levels of learners, and the patients of our Stanford community have greatly benefitted, staying safer and healthier as a result.
