UC College of Medicine Receives Bronze Achievement Award

Cincinnati—The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) gave a Bronze Achievement Award to the UC College of Medicine to recognize its efforts in producing graduates who enter the specialty of family practice. A three-year average (as of October, 1998) showed that 20 percent, or one of every five UC medical students, chose to enter an accredited family practice residency program upon graduation.

Gregg Warshaw, MD, professor and acting chair of the Department of Family Medicine says "Although national trends can influence the number of family practice residents found in any given year, Rick Ricer, MD, professor and coordinator of the Family Medicine Predoctoral Program, and Jeffrey Heck, MD, professor of clinical family medicine and residency director, make concentrated efforts to educate medical students about family medicine."
