Gerald V. Ling, professor in the Department of Medicine and Epidemiology, has received the 2002 Faculty Teaching Award of the School of Veterinary Medicine. Colleagues presented the award to Ling on September 26 during the annual Fall Faculty Reception on the Davis campus.
The Faculty Teaching Award recognizes Ling's contributions to small animal medicine and his proficiency in teaching.
Fellow faculty members note that Ling has contributed regularly and enthusiastically to revitalize the professional curriculum, including revamping of introductory hospital practices courses and a recent revision of the school's core medicine curriculum.
In addition, Ling, author of 'Lower Urinary Tract Diseases of Dogs and Cats', has developed novel and engaging teaching tools to supplement classroom teaching and textbooks. He produced computerized case studies that vividly illustrate nearly 100 examples of urinary tract disease and challenge students to observe examples and test their diagnostic skills.
Ling is a 1965 graduate of the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
