Prestigious GWish award given to ATSU

November 2, 2006
Posted In: Awards, University Headlines

Founding osteopathic institution one of four medical schools honored nationwide

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (Nov. 2, 2006 ) – The George Washington Institute for Spirituality and Health (GWish) has announced A.T. Still University as one of four schools among the nation’s 144 osteopathic and allopathic medical universities to receive the prestigious 2006 Spirituality and Medicine Award for Curriculum Development. The award encourages the full integration of a more compassionate and humanistic approach to healthcare by recognizing outstanding programs that incorporate issues related to spirituality and medicine in the curriculum.

“Beginning with Dr. Still himself, our focus has always been to care for the whole person,” said ATSU President James McGovern, Ph.D. “It is no surprise, then, in a day and age when the rest of the world is awakening to the realization that people are more than just isolated cases of disease or impairment that ATSU is recognized as a national leader in whole person healthcare.”

Dr. McGovern noted that a strong emphasis on compassion and humanism would not be possible without strong leaders within the university.

“This recognition can be wholly attributed to the hard work and dedication of ATSU’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine administration and faculty,” he said.

The $50,000 award from GWish is funded by the John Templeton Foundation.
