Gothenburg’s Anna Dalrymple, MD, has been recognized by the UNMC Department of Family Medicine as the 2024 recipient of the Marion D. and Theodore H. Koefoot, Jr., MD, Outstanding Preceptor in Rural Family Medicine Award. Dr. Dalrymple received the award at the Nebraska Academy of Family Physicians 76th Annual Meeting and Scientific Assembly.

The award is granted to a rural Nebraska family physician who provides outstanding teaching and mentoring of medical students during their family medicine rural preceptorship and serves as an outstanding community physician. Dr. Dalrymple was nominated by students who, over the years, have completed medical student rotations with her in Gothenburg.

The Koefoot Award was created in 2005 in memory of Theodore Koefoot, MD. He was a charter preceptor for UNMC’s rural family medicine preceptorship. The award was established through a gift made to the University of Nebraska Foundation by Dr. Koefoot’s wife, Marion, and his daughter Gretchen Vondrak.

Dr. Dalrymple, also a 2014 UNMC graduate, was celebrated by fellow physicians and staff from the Gothenburg Clinic.

One UNMC student, who completed a clerkship with Dr. Dalrymple, said: “She is an amazing mentor who answered my questions about career choices and life after graduation. Dr. Dalrymple never failed to discuss subjects I was interested in and always wanted me to be well informed.”
