Scott C. Litin, MD (Professor of Medicine, Mayo Clinic) will present Emory’s third annual Paul W. Seavey Distinguished Lecture, “Presentation Skills for Physicians,” on Tuesday, October 17 at noon in the Emory University Hospital auditorium (2E).

“I am passionate about this topic because whether allied health, resident, or staff, we are often judged by the way we present ourselves and our information to both our patients and our colleagues at teaching sessions,” says Dr. Litin.

A distinguished practitioner, lecturer, and teacher, Dr. Litin has served in numerous leadership positions at Mayo Clinic and nationally. In recognition of his work, he has received many Mayo Clinic awards, including the prestigious Henry S. Plummer Distinguished Physician Award, the Distinguished Clinician Award, and the Distinguished Educator Award from Mayo Clinic. The American College of Physicians has recognized him as a Master of the College.

Dr. Litin is actively involved in continuing education programs for practicing physicians and is frequently an invited speaker at medical gatherings. His educational awards include the Outstanding CME Faculty Award and the Outstanding CME Course Director Award from Mayo Clinic. He now spends a portion of his time teaching and tutoring medical students, residents and faculty physicians in ways to improve their presentation skills.

Dr. Litin’s presentation will also be broadcast to the following remote locations:

  • Emory University Hospital Midtown (5th Floor MOT, Classroom 4)
  • Grady (FOB 101)
  • Atlanta VA Medical Center (6th Floor Corner Conference Room)

  • 1525 Clifton Road, (4th Floor Conference Room 477)
  • Grady Ponce De Leon Center (Room 354)

The Paul W. Seavey Distinguished Lecture Series is an annual address made possible by funding from the friends and family of Dr. Seavey. The Seavey Lecture highlights the importance and role of the internist as a diagnostician, emphasizes the importance of the physician-patient relationship, and recognizes important trends in medicine and public health as they relate to the field of ambulatory practice.

Dr. Seavey, a physician, leader, and staunch advocate for the practice of internal medicine dedicated himself throughout his life and career to improving the quality of life of patients by stressing the importance of the physician-patient relationship.
