A Message from the President

Fellow Academy of Medicine of Cincinnati members:

It is my great pleasure to serve as president of the Academy for the 2020-2021 year. Despite the numerous limitations that COVID has imposed on each and every one of us, I am hopeful that we can build on our recent successes to have another great year for the benefit of all physicians in the Greater Cincinnati area. Our recent meetings have generated many great ideas that we expect will lead to several important events this winter and next spring.

The Academy of Medicine of Cincinnati was founded in 1857 as a professional association for physicians in Hamilton County, Ohio. The mission of the Academy of Medicine has always been to advocate on issues affecting physicians’ ability to practice and to foster an environment to practice the highest quality medicine possible.

While these goals remain unchanged, the ways and means of achieving such results have changed. For example, only 15% of physicians are currently solo practitioners, down from over 50% in the 1980s. I believe that the stresses on physicians today, especially in the setting of COVID 19, have never been greater and I believe that the Academy can help all of us navigate these stresses.

The Academy is a singular voice in Greater Cincinnati advocating for ALL physicians, seeking to bring ALL physicians together, and working to improve ALL physicians’ practices and quality of life. Through our active workgroups, we remain committed to offering educational, social, and wellness benefits for all of our members.

Our hope is that every single member finds value in our efforts and participates in our activities throughout the year. Please explore our newly designed website to ensure that you are up to date on all of our plans.

And please feel free to contact me or Natalie Peterson, the Executive Director of the Academy, at any time with any suggestions or comments.

Many thanks to all of you for your continued support for this great organization.

Best regards,

Wyman Morriss, MD
