Three School of Medicine faculty members were honored last week as recipients of the 2015 UAB Graduate School Dean’s Awards for Excellence in Mentorship.
Gustavo Heudebert, M.D., has been appointed the Designated Institutional Official for UAB, giving him authority over the 80 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited residency programs at UAB.
Gustavo Heudebert, M.D., has been elected to mastership by the American College of Physicians, one of the highest honors available to primary care physicians.
The School of Medicine rose to No. 10 in the country in primary care, 34th in research.
The joint department formalizes a collaboration that began in 2009 when UAB created an undergraduate program in neuroscience.
