UNM School of Medicine Faculty Member Dr. Brian Gregory, Solan, M.D. Selected As National Finalist for 2006 AAMC Humanism In Medicine Award

The University of New Mexico School of Medicine faculty member Brian Gregory Solan, M.D. has been selected as an acclaimed finalist for the 2006 Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Humanism in Medicine Award, presented by the AAMC through the support of the Pfizer Medical Humanities Initiative (PMHI). Solan is currently an assistant professor in the department of Family & Community Medicine.

He is one of 52 honorees from across the nation nominated by the Organization of Student Representatives (OSR) chapter of each U.S. medical school. Nominations were based on five defining characteristics of humanism in medical education: positive mentoring skills, community service activities, compassion and sensitivity, collaboration and observance of professional ethics.

UNM medical students chose Solan based on his positive and caring characteristics that make him a role model.

" The medical students who nominated Dr. Solan recognized the human qualities that make him both an outstanding teacher and an outstanding physician," said Mike Magee, MD, vice president, Medical Relations and Science Policy for Pfizer Inc and director of the Pfizer Medical Humanities Initiative.

Dr. Solan's nomination for this special award is a tribute to his commitment to training and mentoring young physicians and having them, in turn, pass on their knowledge to a new generation of physicians, Magee said.
