Two physicians were recognized for outstanding work during the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine’s graduation awards ceremony that took place May 29.

Dr. Gilbert Goliath was awarded the Outstanding Primary Care Preceptor Award for the school’s south-central region. He is a graduate of Universidad Autonoma De Santo Domingo, Facultad De Ciencias Medicas and completed a pediatrics residency training at New York’s Brooklyn Hospital Center and SUNY Downstate Medical Center.

He is a practicing pediatrician in South Charleston and serves as a clinical assistant professor of pediatrics for WVSOM.

Dr. Kamel Marzouk was awarded the Outstanding Specialty Preceptor Award for the south-central region. A graduate of the University of Alexandria School of Medicine, he completed his residency training in internal medicine at Morristown Medical Center.

He also completed a fellowship in pulmonary care/critical care at the University of Southern California. He specializes in critical care medicine at Logan Regional Medical Center and is a clinical assistant professor of internal medicine for WVSOM.

Preceptors assist and provide guidance to WVSOM medical students in their third- and fourth-year clinical rotations. During the annual graduation awards ceremony, preceptors from each of the school’s six regions who have demonstrated excellence in teaching and mentoring also were honored.

Some 50 hospitals, clinics and medical centers across West Virginia take part in WVSOM’s statewide campus program.
