Academic Honors

Invaluable Individual — Dr. Michael Reichgott has been awarded the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) Distinguished Service Award, which recognizes individuals whose work has a concrete impact on the quality of medical education in North America. The LCME grants and reviews the accreditation status of medical schools in both the United States and Canada. The accreditation is dependent on a lengthy peer-review process, which requires the efforts of individuals like Dr. Reichgott. The committee established the award in 2012; Dr. Reichgott its third recipient. He will be celebrated at the LCME Leadership Luncheon and Awards Ceremony during the Association of American Medical Colleges annual meeting, to be held in Chicago this November. Dr. Reichgott is chair of the Einstein-Montefiore institutional review board and of Einstein’s conflict of interest committee. He also is professor of medicine.
