Ludwig tabbed for CANDLE Award

Bryan Ludwig, M.D., a second-year resident in Neurology, was chosen by students for this month's CANDLE (Caring, Advocating, Nurturing, Determination, Leadership and Empathy) Award.

The honor is given to individuals who have devoted themselves to teaching and mentoring.

Recipients are nominated and chosen based upon their positive impact on the lives of physicians-in-training, and are recognized by their students as examples of excellence in medical education.

“Dr. Ludwig was without a doubt one of the most dedicated members of any team I have been on,” said one of his nominators. “He allowed me as a student to have some degree of autonomy, but was always there for support and ready to answer or find the answer to any of my questions. He was always well-liked by his patients and never failed to connect on a level that I can only hope to attain as a future physician. He deserves this award without any doubt.”

“He was always encouraging, upbeat and friendly toward students,” said another student. “He maintained his sense of humor and enthusiasm for sharing knowledge — even on post-call days. Dr. Ludwig has an impressive fund of knowledge and spent a great deal of time trying to spread it around.”
