UCSD’s Bazzo honored by physicians’ group


David Bazzo, MD, who teaches family medicine and sports medicine at UCSD School of Medicine, recently received the California Academy of Family Physicians 2011 Educator of the Year award.

CAFP President Carol S. Havens said Bazzo’s “tireless work to ensure clinical expertise has shaped the practice of thousands of physicians and countless patients over the span of two decades.”

Bazzo has served as the family medicine lead and co-director of the Primary Care Core Clerkship at UCSD since 1999. In this program, third-year medical students are able to experience a full year of outpatient primary care, instead of the briefer clerkships more commonly available.
