Kellie Boyd, MD, volunteer faculty in the department of family and community medicine, was awarded a 2011 Pfizer Teacher Development Award. The annual award is presented by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Foundation to recognize outstanding community-based physicians who combine clinical practice with part-time teaching of family medicine.
Boyd was one of 16 community-based family physicians and part-time teachers throughout the country selected for this honor. She will receive $2,000 to further the development of her teaching skills and her picture will be included in the "Wall of Fame” slide show at the AAFP’s Scientific Assembly in Orlando, Fla., Sept. 14-17.
Boyd is also an alumna of the UC College of Medicine and a former resident of UC Health University Hospital.
