Large number of medical graduates entering family practice (5/20/97)

The large number of medical graduates entering family practice from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio has earned the university a Bronze Achievement Award from the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).

The AAFP calculated that over a three-year period 20 percent of Health Science Center medical students chose to enter family practice residency programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

The award was presented May 5 in Boston at the annual meeting of the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine. Barry Weiss, MD, chairman of family practice, accepted the award.
