The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians (OAFP) is pleased to announce that Andrea Rosado, MD, of Cincinnati, OH, will receive its 2021 Resident Leadership Award.

The OAFP presents the Resident Leadership Award to an individual who has exhibited leadership and shows dedication to promoting family medicine, practices a high degree of professionalism, and possess immense promise as a family physician.

Dr. Rosado received her medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and is currently the chief resident at The Christ Hospital – University of Cincinnati Family Medicine Residency Program where she is a member of numerous committees including the Maternal Mortality Tack Force, Residency Faculty Search Committee, and Program Evaluation Committee to name a few. She is also a co-chair for the Diversity Committee and Inpatient Committee.

Over the past year, Dr. Rosado has served her community and addressed social determinants of health (SDOH) through COVID-19 education and advocacy by participating in panels, presentations, and interviews.

She was nominated for the Resident Leadership Award by her co-chief resident Melissa Saab, MD, who explained, “Dr. Rosado is always quietly working to make circumstances better for her patients and her peers.”

Dr. Rosado reflected on her time before medical school saying, “My formative year of service with St. Vincent de Paul played an integral role in guiding my aspirations as a physician. The year bolstered my desire to care for and advocate for the underserved within the contexts of their SDOH, and guided me towards becoming a family physician who is all-inclusive in caring for the whole patient.”

As she now prepares for her year as chief resident, she wishes to serve her co-residents, advocate for their needs, and promote continued growth and success of the residency program.

“I believe my leadership style is one that maximizes teamwork, development, accountability, integrity, and positive energy,” said Dr. Rosado. “It is important to recognize and cultivate the potential in others, and I enjoy the journey of helping others achieve their goals and bolstering their strengths along the way.”

Dr. Rosado is honored and privileged to accept the 2021 Resident Leadership Award.
