Dr. Jeffrey Borkan, chair of the Department of Family Medicine, has been named one of 50 members of the American Council on Education’s 2013-14 class of ACE Fellows. Borkan is the only fellow sponsored by the F. Marian Bishop Charitable Trust Bishop Fellowship Program, which prepares medical faculty — specifically family medicine physicians — for leadership positions at medical schools and academic health centers. As an ACE fellow, Borkan can participate in retreats, interactive learning opportunities, campus visits and placement at another higher education institution. During the ACE fellowship, Borkan said, he will explore two kinds of programs at other medical schools that can inform efforts at Brown: One would be programs similar to the Primary Care - Population Health track that the Alpert Medical School is planning. The other will be primary care institutes and centers that combine clinical, educational, research, and advocacy work in new ways that better serve the health of the populations they serve.
