Ruth Thomson, D.O., Vice President of Medical Care with Hospice of Dayton, has achieved one of the highest honors the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine can bestow. Dr. Thomson has earned recognition as a Fellow of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
Fellowship is an honor achieved by those physicians whose professional activity is devoted to the practice of hospice and/or palliative medicine. Fellows of the Academy are required to be board certified, members of AAHPM for 5 years and active within the Academy. These individuals request and voluntarily submit applications for Fellowship. In so doing, they are inviting an evaluation of their practice by their peers of their personal integrity, knowledge of the field, professional accomplishment, and demonstrated scholarship.
Dr. Thomson joins Hospice of Dayton colleague Cleanne Cass, D.O., in achieving the advanced recognition as a Fellow by demonstrating significant commitment to the field of hospice and palliative medicine.
