Rohr-Kirchgraber Appointed to Mastership in ACP
Dr. Theresa Rohr-Kirchgraber, professor of medicine at the Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership, has been promoted to Mastership in the American Colleges of Physicians (ACP).
Those elected to Mastership are selected based on integrity, positions of honor, impact in practice or medical research, or other attainments in science or in the art of medicine.
“I’ve been a member of the American College of Physicians since I first entered a career in internal medicine,” said Rohr-Kirchgraber, “and being acknowledged by this group is an honor.”
Rohr-Kirchgraber received her MD from Cornell University and completed her internal medicine residency at University Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio. She came to the Medical Partnership in 2021 after holding a faculty appointment at the Indiana University School of Medicine.
Dean Shelley Nuss wrote a letter of recommendation for Rohr-Kirchgraber.
“Dr. Rohr-Kirchgraber is truly an amazing role model for which we all should aspire,” said Nuss. “She strives for excellence in all she does, and she has made significant contributions in clinical care, diversity and inclusion, leadership, and mentorship in academic medicine.”
This is the latest achievement in Rohr-Kirchgraber’s decorated career—she served two terms as the president of the American Medical Women’s Association, won the Laureate Award from the ACP in 2016, was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha in the spring of 2023, and was awarded Educator of the Year from the Medical Partnership Class of 2025.
