National Honor for University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine
The award recognizes successes and efforts by the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine to serve the health care needs of rural citizens in South Dakota, including those living in or near small towns and on Native American reservations.
“We are grateful to the many communities and countless individuals across our state who partner with us and support our mission to serve South Dakotans,” said Dr. Mary Nettleman, dean of the medical school. “This gratifying award humbles us and inspires us to continue our work.”
In announcing the award, the Association of American Medical Colleges issued the following statement: “The University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine has dedicated itself to advancing the state’s highest health priority: ensuring South Dakotans have access to high-quality, culturally appropriate care.”
The University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine was presented this award at the annual meeting of the Association of American Medical Colleges, held in early November in Boston, Massachusetts.
