KCUMB Professor and Alumnus Earns Recognition

National Organization Names KCUMB Professor and Alumnus as 2013 Internist of the Year

The American College of Osteopathic Internists recently bestowed one of its highest honors upon an alumnus of KCUMB who also serves as a member of our faculty.

Kevin Hubbard, D.O. (COM ’86), professor and chair of internal medicine, was named ACOI’s 2013 Internist of the Year, in recognition of his contributions to the practice of osteopathic internal medicine. Each year, ACOI presents the Internist of the Year award to a physician who is held in high esteem by osteopathic internal medicine leaders for leadership, development and teaching excellence.

He was officially recognized Oct. 11 during the organization’s annual conference in Indian Wells, Calif., and later by the University community at a reception in his honor.

Dr. Hubbard is highly regarded by his colleagues, not only as a hematologist-oncologist, but also as a leader in the osteopathic professional and educational communities. He has an innate ability to apply his knowledge with wisdom and compassion, which sets him apart as an excellent physician, role model and mentor for KCUMB’s student doctors. We are honored to have him as a part of our team.
