The University of South Alabama College of Medicine recently hosted a retirement reception honoring Dr. Stephen Kayes, professor emeritus of medical education at the USA College of Medicine.
Dr. Kayes joined the USA College of Medicine in 1981 as an assistant professor of anatomy, later being appointed assistant professor of microbiology and immunology. He has served in multiple positions throughout the College of Medicine, eventually becoming professor emeritus in the division of medical education.
“Dr. Kayes was an outstanding faculty member. He was always willing to help students and share his knowledge with them,” said Dr. Susan Ledoux, associate dean of medical education and student affairs at the College of Medicine. “He also was an exemplary role model in service to others through his participation in clubs and organizations across campus.”
Dr. Kayes has served on many committees at the College of Medicine, including the curriculum committee and committees for the DREAM program, a program designed by the College of Medicine to introduce, expose, and encourage disadvantaged and underrepresented students to consider careers in medicine. In addition, he also served with Habitat for Humanity and the Lions Club of Mobile.
He is the recipient of many teaching awards and honors, including the Red Sash Award for outstanding faculty recognition at honors convocation at the College of Medicine for multiple years.
Dr. Kayes’ research in the cellular and molecular mechanisms that cause disease has been published in many academic publications. In addition, his research has been presented at several academic conferences throughout the years.
