Family Medicine, School of Medicine honored by AAFP
The School of Medicine and the Department of Family Medicine were once again honored for outstanding contributions to building the family medicine workforce by the American Academy of Family Physicians.
About 18 percent of School of Medicine graduates chose a family medicine residency during the three-year period analyzed by the AAFP. John Saultz, MD, accepted the award on May 4 during the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine Annual Spring Conference in San Antonio.
“This is a recognition that we seem to get every year,” he said. “It belies a serious national problem, in that the nation does not produce enough family doctors. (Here at OHSU) we do better than most, but there’s a really big problem in that the national average is much lower than it needs to be.”
