On behalf of the medical staff, John J. Kelly, M.D., chief of staff, Abington Memorial Hospital, said, “We are so very pleased to expand our relationship with Drexel University College of Medicine by becoming a regional medical campus. While health care is shifting to more care being provided in the outpatient setting, the Drexel medical students will benefit from rotating through ambulatory settings such as our large employed primary care network, Abington Health Physicians. We are all so very pleased for the opportunity to work even more closely with this next generation of bright, young physicians.”
The new regional medical campus designation takes effect July 2014. Margot Boigon, M.D., has been appointed associate dean and director of Undergraduate Medical Education and David Gary Smith, M.D. will continue serving as director of Graduate Medical Education.
