McDougle Receives 2012 Distinguished Diversity Enhancement Award 

 

Leon McDougle, MD, MPH, Associate Dean of Diversity and Inclusion and Associate Professor of Family Medicine, has received Ohio State’s Distinguished Diversity Enhancement Award for 2012. The award recognizes Dr. McDougle’s continued commitment to enhance diversity at Ohio State and for exceeding expectations in implementing the Diversity Action Plan.
 
Since joining the Ohio State Department of Family Medicine in 2001, Dr. McDougle has dedicated his career to the enhancement of diversity by addressing health disparities and inequities at Ohio State and on the national stage. As Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion (ODI), he has been able to address diversity from an institutional perspective.  The ODI offers students who are underrepresented in medicine academic and career counseling, student advocacy, notification of grants and scholarships for which students may be eligible, as well as continued support for educational and recreational experiences that promote personal growth and cultural sensitivity. 
 
Dr. McDougle also serves as the Director of the Medical Careers Pathway Post Baccalaureate Program (MEDPATH). This one-year program is aimed at developing and enriching the knowledge and skills of students prior to their entrance into medical school. MEDPATH prepares underrepresented minorities and students from economically or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds to become successful in the medical school environment.
 
Expanding upon the success of MEDPATH, McDougle partnered with the College of Medicine graduate studies program, the Integrated Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program (IBGP), to create DISCOVERY PREP, a program to enhance the diversity of students entering PhD programs in the biomedical sciences.
 
Recently, Dr. McDougle was recruited into the Group on Diversity and Inclusion for the Association of American Medical Colleges which is the representative group of the 150+ accredited U.S. and Canadian medical schools. At the AAMC national meeting in 2011, McDougle was selected as chair-elect of the Group on Diversity.
 
Dr. McDougle’s efforts have had, and continue to have, an enormous impact on underrepresented minority students, faculty, and patients. His passion and perseverance have not only brought him academic success, but have enabled the success of many of his students. Members of the OSU College of Medicine community join in congratulating Dr. McDougle on receiving this great honor.
