David A. Asch, M.D., M.B.A., receives AAMC Distinguished Teacher Award
Date:11/10/2009

PHILADELPHIA David A. Asch, MD, MBA, the Robert D. Eilers Professor of Medicine and Health Care Management and Economics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and the Wharton School, was presented with the Alpha Omega Alpha Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Award by the Association American of Medical Colleges (AAMC).

The award was presented on Saturday, Nov. 7, during the association's annual meeting in Boston.

Recognizing Dr. Asch, the AAMC said, "Dr. David Asch combines his passion for education with an appreciation for medicine's lighter side. In addition to the wit and humor he brings to classroom instruction, Dr. Asch's longstanding focus on inter-professional education and collaboration, according to his students, has helped them understand the 'intricacies of the enigmatic health care system.'"

In his two decades at Penn, Dr. Asch has worked to link the school of medicine with nearly all of the university's 11 other schools, an effort that in 2006 earned him Penn's highest teaching honor, the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching.

Dr. Asch is also executive director of Penn's Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI). LDI is a formal venture among The University of Pennsylvania's schools of medicine, business (Wharton), nursing, communication (Annenberg), dental medicine, and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, to improve the health of the public through studies on the medical, economic, social, and ethical issues affecting health care. As executive director, Dr. Asch helped develop a summer undergraduate minority research program that pairs students from under-represented minority groups with Penn faculty to complete research projects. Dr. Asch also co-directs the Robert Wood Johnson Health & Society Scholars Program at the University of Pennsylvania.

The Glaser Awards were established in 1988 to provide national recognition to faculty members
