David Holub, M.D., Named Director of Family Medicine Residency Program
David Holub, M.D., has been named the Director of the Family Medicine Residency Program. Dr. Holub, previously served as Associate Director for the past 11 years. He succeeds Stephen Schultz, M.D. who is stepping down after 20 years of leadership and service.
“The word excited is quite the understatement when describing my feelings about the opportunity to succeed Steve Schultz as the director of our residency program,” said Dr. Holub. “After his 20 years of leadership and service, I have big shoes to fill for sure. The transition will be easier because I have served as the Associate Director and, more importantly, because we have an incredible team of faculty, residents, and staff.”
Hallmarks of The Department of Family Medicine and its residency program continue to be commitment to community health and service to the underserved at both the main urban and the inner city FQHC residency sites as well as dedication to teaching and providing team-based care. The team has grown considerably over the past several years and now includes behavioral health clinicians, pharmacists, social workers, and nurse and community care managers. The residency program now offers 10 areas of concentration, and the curriculum includes OB training, psychosocial medicine training, and Global Health experience.
Dr. Schultz was recently honored by the department for his 20 years of service. Last year he received the Nikita J. Zervanos Award from AAFP and the Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors. “In my opinion, this is the highest award a family medicine program director can achieve in recognition of their work,” said Dr. Schultz. “I LOVE being a program director, and I also realize it is a demanding job. I have decided it is time for me to step down after two decades leading the program. I am very proud of my accomplishments during my tenure, and I plan to stay on the faculty and will continue to do inpatient call and see patients.”
Dr. Schultz will also be the new Director of the Global Health Pathway at the medical school, lead the residency Global Health Book Club and will precept on a regular basis. He will continue to work as a consultant for Resident Program Solutions (RPS), a consultancy service for FM residencies run by the AAFP.
