Associate Professor of Medicine Christine Campbell Reardon, MD, has been recognized with BUSM’s highest teaching honor, the Stanley L. Robbins Award.
The annual award honors an outstanding educator and acknowledges the importance of teaching skills and commitment to students and education. It was established in recognition of the exceptional teaching and devotion to students exemplified by Stanley L. Robbins, MD, former professor and chair of pathology.
“Dr. Reardon is an exceptional educator and physician,” said a BUSM student. “She has a way of teaching and encouraging participation, making you feel like a key player on the team. She takes time for individual feedback and is all around just wonderful. I remember her being one of my favorite lecturers during my first two years of medical school, and working with her clinically was the same. She is just fantastic.”
Dr. Reardon’s expertise is in patient care related to intensive care, lung cancer and neuromuscular disease. She is a faculty member in the Pulmonary Thoracic Oncology Program at Boston Medical Center (BMC). Her research interests include mechanical ventilation in the intensive care unit, ventilator associated pneumonias and lung cancer.
“I am originally from Dorchester, grew up in the neighborhood of BMC and attended BUSM, so I understand the honor of receiving the Stanley Robbins Award.” After graduating in 1988, Dr. Reardon completed her residency at the former Boston City Hospital (now BMC) and later was a Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellow there.
At BUSM, Dr. Reardon developed and instructs simulation training programs in airway management, bronchoscopy, tracheostomy, and ventilator training for pulmonary fellows. She also instructs in procedural training for Internal Medicine residents. In addition to these roles, Reardon is Director of Respiratory Care Services at the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children, located in Canton, Massachusetts, formerly the Massachusetts Hospital School, where she provides pulmonary consultative services to its pediatric neuromuscular disease clinic.
