Marshall Obstetrics & Gynecology professor completes national scholars program

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Hisham Keblawi, M.D., an associate professor in the department of obstetrics & gynecology at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, has graduated from the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) Academic Scholars and Leaders program.

The course provides training to 24 obstetrics & gynecology educators in the United State and Canada annually.

Scholars are required to complete an educational application project to enhance teaching at their institutions.  Keblawi's project utilized patient feedback as an assessment tool for medical students.

Keblawi joins department chairman David Jude, M.D., residency program director Kevin Conaway, M.D. and Gary Gilbert, M.D., professor emeritus, as graduates of the program.  Amanda Pauley, M.D., an assistant professor in the department, is currently enrolled in the APGO surgical education scholars program.
