Seven physicians who joined Memorial Hospital in recent months were named to the Best Doctors in America List for 2013 — an honor shared by only 5 percent of doctors in America.
The Best Doctors list, which is decided by impartial peer review, includes an additional 30 doctors who have privileges to practice at Memorial.
The list results from polling more than 45,000 physicians in the United States. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the database, nor are they paid to provide their input.
The Memorial doctors, employed by Colorado Health Medical Group, are: Dr. Martin L. Beggs, thoracic surgery; Dr. Matthew Garret Blum, thoracic surgery; Dr. Kimberly Dulaney, cardiovascular disease; Dr. Nita Harris, cardiovascular disease; Dr. John H. McVicker, neurological surgery; Dr. David Rosenbaum, cardiovascular disease; and Dr. Todd P. Thompson, neurological surgery.
A grant from the Colorado Community College System will allow students studying history at Pikes Peak Community College and University of Colorado Colorado Springs to learn about history by assuming the roles of historic figures with no script or set outcome.
This immersive learning approach, called “Reacting to the Past,” helps students gain a deeper understanding of history and how it relates to other fields of study, while also increasing student retention. Glenn Rohlfing, PPCC assistant professor of history, in collaboration with Roger Martinez, UCCS assistant professor of history, were recently awarded the Rocky Mountain Collaboration: A Reacting to the Past Project Grant from the Community College System. The grant allows PPCC and UCCS to develop curriculum using the “Reacting to the Past” model and to conduct a faculty training conference.
PPCC professor Wayne Artis calls the grant “a milestone in developing an innovative teaching method which engages students actively in their learning across the curriculum and cements partnerships between community colleges and universities, specifically the Colorado Springs campus of the University of Colorado.”
