ROCHESTER, MN – September 23, 2021 – AANEM chooses one member each year who has provided distinguished service over the course of their career as a clinician and/or educator in support of AANEM activities. Kerry H. Levin, MD has been chosen for his commitment as both a clinician and an educator.

Dr. Levin currently works as a neurologist in the Department of Neurology and the Neuromuscular Center at Cleveland Clinic. He has had many roles within the clinic, including serving as chair of the Department of Neurology, the director of the Neuromuscular Center at the Neurological Institute, program director for neurophysiology and NM fellowships, and professor at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University.

Since the completion of his fellowship in 1982 and throughout the course of his career, Dr. Levin has been a dedicated member of AANEM. He has learned throughout this time that there is no greater reward than for caring for patients and mentoring trainees as a physician.

“I have found it wonderfully gratifying to see a trainee learn skills, develop a passion for the work that we do, and incorporate compassion into the practice of medicine,” Dr. Levin states. Aside from helping future physicians grow into their careers, he also enjoys providing opportunities for career advancement for members of his own department of neurology.

Dr. Levin completed his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University. He later completed a dual residency program for internal medicine and neurology before he went onto a fellowship in EMG at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Dr. Levin has always enjoyed lending his time to instruct at the AANEM Annual Meeting. He says he is most excited for the opportunities to “learn, teach, and of course, reunite with old friends at the upcoming meeting.” He will be honored on Friday, October 15, 2021, at the AANEM Annual Meeting in Aurora, Colorado, along with the other winners of this year’s AANEM Achievement Awards.
