On behalf of the Board of Regents, I am pleased to present a KUDOS Award to Kim McLaughlin, administrator for the educational program in UNMC’s Department of Surgery.
Kim transitioned into this role in early 2019 and immediately began to learn all she could about the student rotations and the roles and responsibilities of her team.
Her nominator praised her “team first attitude and mentality.”
Kim, she said, has brought new ideas to the department including streamlining work that was being done manually and creating an electronic process to improve communication across the team. These changes have made for more productive and smoother processes.
Described as a team builder, Kim is eager to help anyone who needs support, advice or assistance. Listen closely, her nominator said, and you’ll hear Kim say - several times a day - “Is there anything I can do for you today?”
Said her nominator: “We can count on her for anything.”
Kim’s knowledge, commitment to staff and faculty, mentoring abilities and work ethic encourages and inspires others to have that same drive and passion. “She brings out the best in us all,” her nominator said.
Please join me in thanking Kim for her exceptional service to UNMC and the Department of Surgery team.
