Exemplary Mentor Award for 2015-2016

Congratulations to Dr Mark Horvath (Assistant Professor, Vascular and Interventional Radiology), who was awarded the 2015-2016 Exemplary Mentor Award by the Department of Psychiatry in the College of Medicine at the University of Florida.

Dr Horvath serves as a mentor for the Physician Shadowing course (MDU 4004), which gives undergraduate students the opportunity to have meaningful clinical experiences in a variety of specialties. The students who rotate with Dr Horvath consistently give excellent feedback about their shadowing experience including:

  • “I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor than Dr Horvath, and I am so thankful for this experience. My eyes have been opened to the idea of interventional radiology as a possible medical specialty that I may choose to pursue and I am more excited and passionate than ever about the field of medicine and my future.”
  • “I could have not imagined a better physician to shadow than Dr Horvath. He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and cares about his patients, fellow doctors and students. He also had a fantastic personality and is very engaging and makes learning process so much easier. I feel truly blessed for the opportunity to shadow Dr Horvath and could not ask for a better experience.”
  • “Dr Horvath was an amazing teacher for me this past semester. I learned so much about interventional radiology and the steps that it takes to get there. Overall, my shadowing experience was invaluable.”

Great job Dr Horvath!
