Top Physicians Under 40

  In fact, the 41 physicians named to
this year's Pennsylvania's Top Physicians
Under 40  by the Pennsylvania Medical
Society (PAMED) have demonstrated a
significant amount of success early in their
medical careers.
They were selected for the honor by a
committee of physicians after being nominated by colleagues for their outstanding
contributions to the practice of medicine
and the delivery of patient care.
According to Charles Cutler, MD, president of the Pennsylvania Medical Society,
this award is one of several efforts by the
organization to recognize the special place
Pennsylvania has in training physicians
and to encourage physicians to stay and
practice in Pennsylvania.
Among PAMED's other projects to
encourage early career physicians to stay in
the state are advocating for physician-led
team-based care, meaningful tort reform,
increased medical residency training positions, and medical school student loan
forgiveness programs for those willing to
practice in rural and/or underserved areas
of the Commonwealth.
"In a state like Pennsylvania, the young
talent we have throughout the health care
spectrum is outstanding, but these 41
individuals are going to be the ones to
watch in upcoming years," says Dr. Cutler.
The four young physicians selected from
Lancaster County include:
