Maurizio Fava, MD, executive vice chair of the Department of Psychiatry, was honored with the 2012 John T. Potts Jr., MD, Faculty Mentoring Award during an April 10 celebration in the Trustees Room. The award – given annually by the Center for Faculty Development – recognizes senior faculty members with 10 or more years of mentoring experience at the MGH. It was created to honor Potts, who served as chairman of the Department of Medicine and physician-in-chief from 1981 to 1996, and as director of Research from 1995 to 2004. “Having known and admired Dr. Potts for years, I am extremely honored by this award,” Fava said. “Dr. Potts has been a role model for all of us at MGH, and I am very grateful to all my trainees for having given me the opportunity to mentor them and for their kind and thoughtful nominations.”
