Carl Patow.

Carl Patow, MD, MPH, executive director of the HealthPartners Institute for Medical Education in Minneapolis, Minn., was awarded a Bush Foundation Medical Fellowship to pioneer reform of graduate medical education in the state of Minnesota. He received one of only 13 medical fellowships in 2004. During the three-year period, Patow will study the redesign of resident physicians' training, creating a new model that emphasizes excellence in resident's educational experience. The new model will include innovations in patient safety, informatics, communication, care system design and teamwork. He will continue with his current responsibilities as the executive director of the HealthPartners Institute for Medical Education and associate dean of the University of Minnesota Medical School for Faculty at HealthPartners during the time of the fellowship. The Bush Medical Fellows Program was established to enhance community health care in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and western Wisconsin through the professional and personal development of selected physician leaders. Each year, about 13 physicians are awarded fellowships by the Bush Foundation that enable them to take a leave of absence from their practices to pursue personal and professional goals that also address the health care needs of their communities. Through the program physicians have developed clinical and leadership skills that have resulted in improved health care in their communities and a rediscovery of their own potential. Patow received his medical degree at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, and a master's degree in public health from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. He completed a residency in otolaryngology at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and fellow-ships at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center and the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health. Patow has served as a senior examiner for the Malcolm Baldrige Quality Program and as chair of the Ear, Nose, and Throat Devices Panel of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
