Date:11/12/2007

PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Medical Association (AMA) proudly presented Portland physician Richard Allen, M.D., with its 2007 Distinguished Service Award Saturday at its semi-annual policy-making meeting. Dr. Allen is the first Oregon physician to receive the award, which is granted for meritorious service in the science and art of medicine.

"Dr. Allen has devoted himself to advancing medical education," said AMA President Ron Davis, M.D. "His commitment to medical education benefits both future generations of physicians and their patients."

Dr. Allen, an obstetrician-gynecologist, is the assistant dean for graduate medical education at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland (OHSU), and previously won their Distinguished Faculty Service Award. Dr. Allen has been instrumental in developing a program for reentry to medicine for inactive physicians. He is the only physician in the history of the AMA to have served as president of two different state medical societies: the Oregon Medical Association and the Colorado State Medical Society.

As an active member of the AMA, Dr. Allen was elected to the AMA Council of Medical Education for successive terms of nine years, including Chair in 2000. He served six years on the Residency Review Committee for ob-gyn, six years on the Institutional Review Committee for the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, and six years on its Executive Committee, including Chair in 1997. Dr. Allen is vice-chair of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Delegation to the AMA.

Dr. Allen, a native Oregonian, practiced in Portland from 1969-1993 at Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital before accepting leadership of a residency training program in Denver, Co. He returned to OHSU in 2002. In 1992 he was named the Oregon Medical Association's Doctor/Citizen of the Year for his leadership in the development of the Oregon Health Plan.
