Marshall Health physician selected for prestigious OB/GYN scholars and leaders program


HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Ally Roy, M.D, Marshall Health physician and assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, was recently selected for the 2024 Association of Professors in Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) Academic Scholars and Leaders Program.

The rigorous 15-month program is taught by nationally-known educators. Up to 25 faculty members from around the nation are selected annually for the highly competitive program, which helps OB/GYN advance their skills as teachers, education program administrators and leaders. Graduates of the program focus on “excellence in education” and utilize an evidence-based approach to support education-related decision making relevant to curriculum design, instructional methods, program and performance evaluation and administrative issues.

Roy will join David Jude, M.D., Kevin Conaway, M.D., Hisham Keblawi, M.D., and Gary Gilbert, M.D. (emeritus faculty), as faculty within the School of Medicine’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology to have completed the scholars program. Fellow faculty member Amanda Pauley, M.D., is a graduate of the APGO Surgical Education Scholars Program, a similar program based on developing and implementing surgical education curricula.

“Having so many of our OB/GYN faculty selected for these prestigious APGO programs demonstrates this department’s commitment to both undergraduate and graduate medical education," said Jude, professor and chair of the department.
