Posted February 16, 2019 10:59:56 A doctor who trained at Kutz, the oldest private medical school in the U.S., will become an associate professor of medicine at Kitzmiller Medical School in Pittsburgh.
Kutztown Medical School and the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Human Services announced Wednesday that Dr. David P. Bowers, who worked as a student there from 1990 to 1995, will become a full professor in the College of Medicine at the school.
“The Kutzmiller school has long been recognized as a world-class medical education program and is a leading medical school that offers students a unique combination of undergraduate and graduate education,” the school said in a news release.
“Dr. Bower is an exceptional educator and a valued mentor to our students, faculty and staff.
He is the perfect addition to our faculty and our student body.”
Bowers earned his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Kutz in 1987, his master’s degree from Kitz in 1992 and his doctorate in family medicine from Penn in 1993.
The Kutz School of Medical Science was founded in 1856 and has a total enrollment of more than 7,000 students.
It is the third time in as many years that a Kutz graduate will become associate professor at Korkut.
Last year, Associate Professor Michael G. Gerson became an associate in the School of Nursing.
