Charlie Ouimet, who taught with distinction for nearly 40 years at Florida State, including nearly two decades in the Department of Biomedical Sciences with the College of Medicine, died May 2 at the age of 76 from metastatic cancer.

Obituary: https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/name/charles-ouimet-obituary?id=51790928

His sharp wit, unmistakable enthusiasm, and ability to inspire students led him to receive 21 teaching awards at FSU, including the universityโ€™s highest honor: the Distinguished Teaching Award. He won the top teaching award in the Program in Medical Sciences nine times in 10 years during the 1990s before his name was permanently added to it before the College of Medicineโ€™s first class arrived in 2001.

As the third faculty member hired for the nationโ€™s newest medical school, Ouimet joked that he really wanted to be seventh: โ€œThen I could have called myself 007," he said.

To gain a better appreciation of his humor and love of students, read the commencement speech he gave to the College of Medicine M.D. Class of 2012: https://med.fsu.edu/spotlight/home/graduation-day-class-2012/tue-10232018-1752

Better yet, listen to his unparalleled delivery in this video:

The Department of Biomedical Sciences is developing a scholarship fund in his honor. Check med.fsu.edu soon for more about that and Ouimetโ€™s life and impact.

Congratulations, Sediqua! We're so proud of you!

"Buffordโ€™s research focuses on precision medicine and the advancement of medical science, centered around a goal of contributing toward more standard, efficient and affordable health care for all. Her aim is to discover biomarkers that can be used in translational research to provide interventions that address disproportional mortality rates among people of African ancestry. Following graduation, Bufford intends to continue focus on solutions to race-based disparities in health and access to health care."
