The Faculty Affairs Office is pleased to announce that Stephanie Bissonnette, DO, MPH, is December’s Distinguished Faculty of the Month.
An assistant professor of neurology, Bissonnette joined the BUSM community in 2018. She received a bachelor of science in chemistry from Boston College, an MPH from BUSPH and her DO from the University of New England, Biddeford, Maine.
Her nominators say, “By far, Stephanie is one of the best attendings that I have worked with on the general service. She allows seniors to have autonomy and manage the team. Allows medical students to present. Appropriately spends a lot of time on rounds on teaching cases. Plenty of teaching in the afternoon. Will see patients to be discharged before rounds.
“Stephanie helped set up the Parkinson Partners Student Interest Group, which pairs BU medical students with patients with Parkinsons. She is more than an advisor for this group and is actively involved in the meetings and mentoring the student leaders.
“Stephanie engages students with her energy and enthusiasm.”
