Marshall medical graduate Scott E. Davis, M.D., is one of 16 family physicians
in the United States chosen to receive a 2011 Pfizer Teacher Development Award
from the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation.
The award honors family physicians who teach medical students and residents on a part-time basis with little or no payment. Award recipients are selected based on their scholastic achievement, leadership qualities and dedication to family medicine.
“This is quite a significant award, and there couldn’t be a finer person for it,” said Dr. John B. Walden, chairman of the Department of Family and Community Health. “The award criteria describe just exactly who Scott Davis is: academically, he was outstanding, leadership is written all over him, and his dedication to family medicine has been there since Day 1. He is a wonderful teacher and mentor, and he serves as an inspiration not only to residents and students but also to the faculty. Students who rotate with him love it.”
Medical student Lauren Bevins said Davis both challenged and encouraged her during her rotation with him in his practice at Valley Health-Wayne.
Davis graduated from the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine in 2006 and completed his residency in family medicine there in 2009.
The American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation said Davis and the other recipients will each receive a framed certificate and a $2,000 scholarship.
