A Palmyra-based pediatric resident at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center was recognized for exceptional teaching.

Dr. Scott Barber’s teaching at the Penn State medical school was recognized via the Exceptional Moments in Teaching program, a monthly award for outstanding instructors at the Hershey campus.

“Dr. Barber is a truly fantastic teacher who went out of his way to make sure that my experience on the pediatrics rotation was as productive and rewarding as possible,” a current student was quoted as saying in a press release. “He gave me invaluable guidance in preparing my rounds presentations and notes so I could make meaningful contributions to the team.

Barber lives in Palmyra with his wife, Abbey, and 9-month-son, Cody. Barber received his undergraduate degree from St. Bonaventure University in New York, where he was an officer for the campus EMS team. He completed his medical degree at George Washington University in Washington, DC.

Following his pediatric training, Barber will serve as chief resident at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital in Hershey.
