James Schmidt, MD, a hospitalist with Trinity Health, is among physician faculty who were honored during recent commencement ceremonies at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Grand Forks.
Dr. Schmidt, who is clinical instructor of family and community medicine at UND’s Northwest Campus in Minot, was named Outstanding Physician-Teacher by medical graduates. The awards are presented annually to medical faculty at each of the medical school’s campuses in Minot, Bismarck, Grand Forks, and Fargo.
“As a community-based institution, the School could not carry out its educational mission without the dedication and sacrifice of our voluntary faculty members,” said Joshua Wynne, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., vice president for health affairs and dean of the School. “We are fortunate to have many dedicated physicians from across North Dakota who go beyond the call of duty in giving our students the benefit of their time, experience, knowledge, and wisdom.”
A Minot native and 2004 graduate of the UND School of Medicine, Dr. Schmidt joined Trinity Health after completing his residency training at the Northwest Campus. He is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.
