Medical Education Programs Celebrate 50 Years of Excellence

OhioHealth Grant Medical Center is proud to celebrate the 50th anniversaries of its Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship and Family Medicine Residency programs. These programs have shaped the careers of many medical professionals since their founding.

The Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship, established in 1974, has graduated nearly 80 fellows. Program director, Bruce Kerner, MD, highlighted the fellowship’s widespread influence and impact their graduates have made worldwide. “They’re in the continental United States, all the way to Hawaii, all the way to Puerto Rico, and even the Middle East,” said Dr. Kerner.

The Family Medicine Residency Program, accredited in 1971 and having graduated its first class in 1973, is also celebrating this same milestone. As one of the oldest and largest family medicine programs in the country, it has trained over 500 physicians.

“Our mission really is to train comprehensive, equitable, and innovation physicians,” said Alysia Herzog, MD, program director of the Family Medicine Residency program. The program takes pride in their full scope approach, bringing up flexible and adaptable physicians to successfully serve any community.

“We have a great team, and I think that really gives you a lot of opportunities for success,” Dr. Herzog said. She is thankful for the dedicated staff and OhioHealth leadership’s support in educating the next generation of physicians.
