2011 Governor's Service Award
Robert M. Greenfield, MD, FACP
Dr. Robert Greenfield began his academic years by receiving a BA in Economics from George Washington University and then made a career change, culminating in his graduation with a MD degree from George Washington University in 1975. He then completed his internship at the University of Oregon Medical Center, and his internal medicine residency at George Washington University. He arrived in Maryland in 1981, where he was the Assistant Director of the Emergency Department at Anne Arundel Hospital in Annapolis, Maryland until 1983 when he entered private practice in internal medicine in that area. He has been an active member of the Annapolis medical community since that time. He has twice been cited by “What’s Up Annapolis” as one of the Top Docs for the Annapolis area. He has also served as the Chief of Medicine at Anne Arundel Medical Center from 2003 until 2005.
Dr. Greenfield is being recognized for his role as the Chair of the Maryland Chapter’s Health & Public Policy Committee and its Leadership Day coordinator from 2007 until 2010. Dr. Greenfield recognized very soon after becoming chair of this committee the importance of representing internal medicine in the legislative arena both locally and nationally. To this end, he took on the role of Chapter legislative advocate and at every opportunity addressed the concerns and problems primary care was facing with local and national leaders. In recent years, he was awarded the “Key Contact Award” by the national ACP during Leadership Days for his representation of primary care concerns to our legislative leaders.
The Maryland Chapter is a very active and dynamic organization that represents internal medicine over a broad spectrum from the practicing physicians to our students. We are privileged to have several members who are willing to take that “extra step” to ensure that the voice of primary care continues to be heard. We believe that Bob Greenfield is certainly one of those members and are happy to present him with this award.
