Medlock Inducted Into University of Georgia Teaching Academy
Dr. Amy Medlock, professor of biochemistry at the Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership, has been inducted into the 2023 University of Georgia Teaching Academy.
The University of Georgia Teaching Academy was established in 1999 to discuss, celebrate, and promote teaching excellence. The program is part of the Teaching Academy Campus Program founded by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the American Association for Higher Education.
“I am very excited and honored to be inducted into the UGA Teaching Academy,” said Medlock. “The members are a group of well-recognized educators, many of whom have served as formal and informal mentors to me during my time at UGA.”
Medlock received her Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Erskine College in 1994 before earning her PhD in biochemistry from the University of Georgia in 2000. She served as a postdoctoral associate at UGA from 2001-2003 and 2004-2009 and as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Cape Town from 2003-2004.
Medlock and other inductees were honored at the New Member Dinner and Induction Ceremony at the Special Collections Library on November 9.
