Two UMKC School of Medicine students — Clifton Davis, MS 6, and Carlee Oaklee, MS 4 — have been selected by the Missouri Chapter of the American College of Physicians for awards recognizing their work in health care.

Davis was selected as a recipient of the Missouri ACP Clerkship Award that honors a medical student for exemplary performance in his or her general internal medicine clerkship. Oakley was chosen to receive the Missouri ACP Physical Diagnosis Award that is given to a student based on his or her outstanding performance in the physical diagnosis of patients.

The students will receive their awards during a banquet on Sept. 18 at the organization’s annual meeting in Osage Beach, Missouri. The American College of Physicians is the largest medical-specialty organization and the second-largest physician group in the country. It is a national group of internists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment and compassionate care of their patients. More than 2,400 physicians and students are members of the organization’s Missouri chapter.
