"This award is further affirmation of Dr. Lansing's outstanding teaching skills, dedication to teaching, and ability to engage her students," says Greg Thompson, MD, Gundersen Health System chief medical officer and director of Gundersen Medical Foundation Medical Education.
Dr. Lansing has been caring for patients at Gundersen since 1999 and has been teaching UW medical students for 18 years. She serves as the director of Curriculum and Faculty Development, the La Crosse site director for the Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine (WARM) program, and has served as the director of the Primary Care Clerkship for the Western Campus for 17 years.
"Teaching is a great joy for me," Dr. Lansing says. "I enjoy the challenge of adapting to my students and coming up with a way of learning that suits them best.
"I am grateful Gundersen has cultivated a long-term relationship with the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. It has brought such a great group of students directly to us, and it allows us to help shape them as physicians, beginning early in their careers. All of our dedicated teachers here help them to get off on the right foot, ensuring that we have high quality and caring future physicians."
