King’s College London Professor Honoured With Medical School’s Personal Tutor Of The Year Award


A yearly teaching award organised by the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine Development team encourages those involved with the Medical School to nominate outstanding teachers and formally acknowledge their work.

After review a panel, Professor David Edwards, Head of Perinatal Imaging and Health, School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences was named personal tutor of the year, being cited as a source of support and encouragement for his tutees over the years.

‘He has always listened to feedback from tutees and organized social events for tutees to meet one another across year groups,’ the feedback read.

‘Even with the demands of being a senior academic, Professor Edwards is generous with his time and makes a concerted effort to get to know students. He has had a hugely positive impact on students’ journeys at King’s and helped them become confident in their abilities.’
