CONGRATULATIONS Glenn Nemec, MD!! The University of Minnesota Medical School’s Rural Physician Associate Program (RPAP) recently awarded Dr. Nemec the Excellence in Teaching & Recognition of Service Award to recognize and salute his exemplary teaching and mentoring of the next generation of physicians. Thank you Dr. Nemec for all that you have done for medical students and Stellis Health!
RPAP is a nine-month, hands-on educational experience in which third-year medical students work with physicians and specialists in the clinic and hospital. Stellis Health has a long history of mentoring medical students by participating in RPAP as well as training other students to become Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and family medicine and pediatric residents. In fact, many of the current Stellis Health providers were students trained by Dr. Nemec at Stellis Health.
“Dr. Nemec is truly an inspirational leader here at Stellis Health where we proudly train and encourage the next generation of providers to care for our community,” says Douglas Hanson, MPA, Chief Executive Officer of Stellis Health. “We’re dedicated to addressing the provider shortage and relish sharing our medical experience as well as the great quality of life we enjoy in an x-urban community.”
Dr. Nemec has been caring for patients in and around Monticello for more than 30 years. In addition to serving as an RPAP preceptor, he is the past-President of the Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians. To schedule an appointment at Stellis Health or for more information, call 763.271.3800.
