Dr. William Stager Receives NSU Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award

DR. WILLIAM STAGER RECEIVES NSU DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI ACHIEVEMENT AWARD – 1989 alumnus William H. Stager, D.O., M.S., M.P.H., FAAFP, FAAMA, FAAO, FACOFP dist., was the recipient of an NSU Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award at a ceremony held November 9 at NSU’s Grande Oaks Golf Club in Davie, Florida.

The annual Distinguished Alumni Achievement Awards recognition event salutes outstanding graduates from each NSU college or school and is the highest and most prestigious honor NSU bestows upon its alumni. The program recognizes alumni who have realized their potential around the world by demonstrating a record of distinguished service and extraordinary achievement in a particular profession, discipline, organization, or community cause.

Stager, who was the Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine (KPCOM) alumni award recipient, has been a primary care physician since 1990 and serves as a KPCOM clinical professor. During his long career, he has taught hundreds of medical students, interns, residents, and physicians throughout the United States, Canada, Norway, and China. Additionally, he has published more than 200 articles in various health and fitness magazines and medical journals.

While he was a first-year KPCOM student, Stager was asked to work as a lab instructor and a lecturer in anatomy, embryology, histology, medical ethics, and neuroanatomy because he had already earned his Master of Science in Anatomy degree. Two years later, he was chosen to be a KPCOM predoctoral teaching fellow in osteopathic principles and practice, which are concepts he teaches to this day.

Stager is a Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture, and the American Academy of Osteopathy. He also is the recipient of several prestigious awards, including the 2011 Florida Academy of Osteopathy Distinguished Service Award, the 2010 Florida Society of the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians Physician of the Year Award, and the 2007 Florida Osteopathic Medical Association Presidential Achievement Award.
