Remarks by Dr. Henrich at the March 22 awards dinner:

“Not too many professors respond to emails at 2 a.m., but Dr. Francis Lam does. Although he is known for his intense focus of the subject matter in his pharmacology courses, he is also known to be accessible and caring for his students, which is reflected unanimously on class reviews. To be an effective teacher, it is also important for an educator to be involved in the development and the improvement of the curriculum. Additionally, it is important to understand the assessment process and how decisions are made that affect the future of our students. Dr. Lam has been actively engaged in both of these processes and has earned the respect of students and colleagues alike.”

From the nominating letter by Brian Ross, second year dental student and Class of 2018 President, School of Dentistry:

The student reviews for Dr. Lam’s classes are phenomenal, and they echo into the professional realm. My brother, a pharmacist, studied with me in the basement of the library, and stressed that the main points emphasized in Dr. Lam’s lectures were things that should always stick with a health care professional. I feel my skill as a clinician was invigorated by having learned from him. He not only has gratitude and admiration from me, but also my entire dental class.”
