Susan M. Szulewski, MD, McLean’s associate chief medical officer and medical director of the Clinical Evaluation Center, was recently awarded the prestigious 2022 Jonathan O. Cole Award.
The annual award—established in 2006, thanks to a gift from the Fleetwing Charitable Foundation—honors Dr. Cole, a former McLean psychiatrist.
The honor is intended to recognize individuals who embody many of Cole’s notable personal and professional qualities, including dedication to excellence, humility, compassion, innovation, perseverance, creativity, individuality, and a willingness to be unconventional.
“To be the recipient of the Cole Award is such an honor,” Szulewski said. “I feel privileged to be able to do this important work alongside some of the most dedicated and compassionate people—this award truly represents them. These past couple of years, facing the pandemic and sustained behavioral health surge, have demonstrated the true resilience and strength of McLean. I am proud to be part of the team.”
As this year’s recipient—selected by Scott L. Rauch, MD, McLean’s president and psychiatrist in chief, along with other key leaders across the hospital—Szulewski receives a discretionary monetary award to support McLean-led clinical, research, and training activities.
