Jose Mantilla Rivas, MD, PGY4 Child & Adolescent Fellow, Recognized by Pitt School of Medicine as Outstanding Educator 

The Pitt School of Medicine has recognized Jose Mantilla Rivas, MD (PGY4 Child & Adolescent Fellow), for outstanding dedication to medical education by posting praise from a Pitt Med student on the Office of Medical Education website

"During my psychiatry rotation, Dr. Jose Mantilla Rivas created a positive environment that valued team-work and transparency. Without knowing him at all and having just met, he allowed me to sit with him on day 1 while he got feedback on his psychiatry interview from his supervisors, a vulnerable position for him to be in but a unique learning experience for me that many people may not have facilitated. This showed me an honest dedication to medical education. Throughout the rotation, he challenged me to be ready and willing to have autonomy with patients through his teaching and encouragement. Dr. Mantilla-Rivas is an amazing physician and it is clear that he is dedicated to sharing his craft, working with him was one of my favorite experiences of MS3!” - Submitted by a UPSOM student (2020: Psychiatry Clerkship)

Neeta Shenai, MD (Psychiatry Clerkship Director) noted, “This recognition for Dr. Mantilla Rivas is not surprising and speaks to his consistently outstanding quality of teaching.”

Congratulations, Dr. Mantilla Rivas for this Professionalism Accolade!
