Temple University School of Medicine awarded neonatologist Stephen Higgins, M.D. from Crozer-Keystone Health System the 2014 Blockley-Osler Award. This is the first time that that a Crozer-Keystone Health Network physician has been nominated and has won this award.

The Blockley-Osler Award is presented to a physician-member of the affiliate faculty of the Medical School for excellence in Bedside Teaching. 

Higgins is board-certified in pediatrics and neonatal-perinatal medicine. He graduated from Hahnemann University and completed both his residency and fellowship at Thomas Jefferson University.

“I was really kind of surprised about the award. I see faculty here at Crozer everyday, particularly in pediatrics, that just do amazing and inspirational work. They’re really dedicated and creative,” Higgins said when asked about receiving the award. “Our pediatric residents take a lot of pride in teaching the Temple students and we routinely get really good feedback from the students about our residents.”

One of Higgins unsung heroes is Joanne Falkowski, administrative assistant. “She keeps the program running smoothly and the students love working her,” says Higgins. Falkowski has since moved on to another role in the system, but Higgins is grateful for all her hard work. He would also like to recognize the Temple students saying, “they are terrific and set the bar high.”

Dr. Higgins has been teaching Temple students since 2001 when he started at Crozer-Chester Medical Center and became the Clerkship Director in 2008.
