IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Roger Tracy has been named assistant dean of the
College of Medicine. The announcement was made by Dr. Robert P. Kelch,
dean of the college. Tracy will continue as director of the college's Office
of Statewide Clinical Education Programs.
"Roger's efforts to ensure that our medical students receive top-quality,
hands-on training with community physicians across the state have meant
a great deal to our efforts to educate primary care physicians," Kelch
Tracy joined the College of Medicine in 1969 as director of project
development and director of community services for the Iowa Regional Medical
Program. In 1974 he was named director of the Office of Community-Based
Programs, which became the Office of Statewide Clinical Education Programs
Under Tracy's leadership the office has established a statewide network
of physicians who serve as preceptors, helping train medical students in
real-world situations. The office also maintains one of the nation's most
comprehensive databases of physicians, one purpose of which is to help
Iowa communities attract and retain physicians.
In addition, the office offers an array of programs designed to help
physicians and communities establish and develop practices.
