HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Dr. Amanda N. Pauley, an assistant professor with the department of obstetrics and gynecology at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, has been selected for the 2016-2018 Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics Surgical Education Scholars program.
“We are thrilled that Dr. Pauley has been chosen for this prestigious program,” said Dr. David C. Jude, professor and chair of the department. “She will be exposed to educational methods that are geared toward developing and implementing surgical curricula here in our department and we are excited for her participation.”
Pauley, a board-certified physician who practices with Marshall Obstetrics and Gynecology, is a graduate of the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and also completed her residency at Marshall.
According to APGO, the 18-month training program prepares physicians to fulfill major surgical education responsibilities and positions within their medical centers. It includes four educational sessions over the training period, along with independent study and a research project, most of which can be completed locally.
Pauley will continue seeing patients while enrolled in the program. She becomes the fifth physician educator from the department of obstetrics and gynecology to be selected for the APGO scholars programs.
Others include Dr. Hisham A. Keblawi, who is currently enrolled in the Academic Scholars and Leaders program, as well as graduates Dr. Kevin J. Conaway, Dr. Jude, and faculty emeritus Dr. Gary G. Gilbert.
