LEWISBURG, W.Va. (News Release) – Two area physicians received recognition during the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM) Graduation Awards Ceremony that took place May 29.

Timothy Workman D.O., received the Outstanding Primary Care Preceptor Award for the Southeast Region of its Statewide Campus system. Dr. Workman is a graduate of WVSOM. He completed an internship at Logan General Hospital. He practices family medicine with Valley Medical Associates in Lewisburg, W.Va. He is a clinical assistant professor of family medicine for WVSOM.

Mark Byrd, M.D., received the Outstanding Specialty Preceptor Award for the Southeast Region. Dr. Byrd is a graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. He completed his residency training in internal medicine at the University of Mississippi Hospital followed by a pulmonary fellowship. Prior to his untimely passing earlier this year, he practiced internal medicine and pulmonology at Greenbrier Physicians in Ronceverte, W.Va.

Preceptors assist and provide guidance to WVSOM medical students in their third- and fourth-year clinical rotations. During the annual Graduation Awards Ceremony, recognition was awarded to preceptors from each of the six statewide campus regions who have demonstrated excellence in teaching and mentoring. These health professionals have also demonstrated a commitment to community wellness and service.

WVSOM President Michael Adelman, D.O., D.P.M., J.D., said physicians willing to offer guidance as preceptors provide an invaluable service to students.

“On top of their responsibilities as physicians, these individuals take on the mentorship and evaluation of students performing clinical rotations at hospitals around the state,” Adelman said. “It is impossible to adequately convey the profound impact a good preceptor has on shaping the competencies and character of these future physicians. This award is one small way we can honor their efforts and recognize the positive difference they’re making in our students’ lives.”

Approximately 50 hospitals, clinics and medical centers across West Virginia participate in WVSOM’s Statewide Campus program. Outstanding Primary Care and Specialty Preceptor Awards were given to physicians in each campus region including central, eastern, northern, south central, southeast and southwest.
