John Norwood, MD, has received numerous honors and awards, mainly for teaching. From the John Herr Musser Memorial Prize for Scholarship in Medicine, awarded by the Tulane University School of Medicine, to his many Outstanding Resident Teaching Awards at the University of Tennessee to his Gerald I. Pittman Resident of the Year Award and Outstanding Clinical Instructor Awards, it was evident that teaching was his gift. He garnered two Top Twenty Housestaff Teaching Awards as well. However, as well respected as he is by residents and fellows, his priority is clear.
"Being a partner in long term care is why I became a physician. Delivering compassionate care and developing long term relationships with patients is what it is all about," Dr. Norwood said.
He is a member of the Infectious Diseases Society of America, as well as the HIV Medicine Association (HIVMA). Dr. Norwood's extensive published papers range in topic from HIV and infectious diseases to diabetes and early pubertal nutrition.
