Randy Maigaard, M.D. Named Teacher of the Year
Des Moines, July 15, 2009 – The Internal Medicine Department at Broadlawns Medical Center announced that Randy Maigaard M.D. was selected as Teacher of the Year by the residents of the Internal Medicine Residency program at Iowa Methodist Medical Center.
“It is very unusual that a physician from outside the Iowa Methodist system is selected for this award,” said Larry Severidt, M.D., director of medical education and the Family Medicine Residency at Broadlawns. “This is certainly a deserved honor for one of our outstanding teachers.”
Other members of Broadlawns’ Internal Medicine Department include Department Chair Brett McFarlin, D.O.; Doug Hanson, M.D.; and Alan Hilgerson, D.O.
After graduating from the University of Iowa College of Medicine in Iowa City, Maigaard completed his residency requirements at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee before coming to Broadlawns in 20xx.
Maigaard is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. In addition to a teaching rotation in the residency programs of Broadlawns, he is also on staff at Broadlawns Internal Medicine Clinic.
The Broadlawns Family Residency Program is one of the oldest and largest family medicine residency programs in Iowa, second only to the program at the University of Iowa. Over the three decades since the program originated in 1977, nearly 300 graduates of this program have taken their training to improve healthcare in countless rural areas, smaller towns, communities and large metropolitan areas, with more than 170 Broadlawns graduates taking up practice in rural Iowa.
Celebrating its 85th anniversary this year, Broadlawns Medical Center first opened its doors as a hospital to the residents of Polk County on April 13, 1924. Over the years, Broadlawns has adapted to the changing demands of public health care, yet remained true to its mission of offering quality health services to all Polk County residents and training tomorrow’s health care professionals. Today Broadlawns Medical Center is composed of:
- An acute care community hospital serving medical, surgical, mental health and primary care needs
- A 60-member physician practice overseeing numerous specialty clinics and outpatient services
- A Family Medicine Residency Program that graduates physician leaders who today serve in 22 of Iowa’s 99 counties
