Ramage Award for Leadership in Humane Education
Presented to H. Gratin Smith, MD
Robert Tiller, MD, Program Director at Self Regional Family Medicine Residency Program, presented the ninth Annual Raymond C. Ramage, MD Award for Leadership in Humane Education to H. Gratin Smith, MD, during the graduation of Self Regional’s family medicine residents. Dr. Smith served as pediatric faculty at the Greenwood Family Medicine Residency since 1989. He retired in the summer of 2013; however, his influence on several generations of family physicians and on pediatric medical care cannot be overstated. Dr. Smith is truly an outstanding physician and educator who exemplifies the wonderful characteristics of the Ramage Award: a passion for teaching, the highest respect for human dignity, community service and a truly caring attitude towards all patients.
The Ramage Award was established by South Carolina AHEC to recognize a deserving faculty member in a specialty other than family medicine. The award is based on a similar award, The Halford Award, which recognizes leadership in humanism in family medicine. Dr. Raymond Ramage was an integral part of the formation of the South Carolina Consortium of Community Teaching Hospitals in 1970 and was a “founding father” of the South Carolina AHEC in 1972.
