Lisa Kaufmann, MD

Dr. Lisa Kaufmann is a 2022 Golden Stethoscope Award winner!

After more than two years of sacrifice and hard work it is time to celebrate again!  The North Carolina Medical Society is honoring physicians and PAs who went above and beyond during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Each day this week we are announcing the winners. YOU can join them at the Golden Stethoscope Awards Gala on October 15.

More about Dr. Kaufmann:

Lisa Kaufmann, MD is the Medical Director of the Adult  Inpatient and Emergency Department Service Line at Appalachian Regional Health Care System in the rural Blue Ridge Mountains. She is also the Medical Director of their Hospitalist Program, and Clinical Inpatient Faculty in the  MAHEC Boone Family Medicine Residency .  Dr Kaufmann came to love the Blue Ridge during her undergraduate and medical school years at Duke.   Her Internal Medicine residency was at the University of Pennsylvania. After 8 years in private practice in Tucson, AZ, she joined the faculty of the University of Arizona, and late the State University of New York in Syracuse, from which she retired early as full professor to move to the mountains she loves.  Dr Kaufmann’s academic focus is on quality improvement and clinical teaching.  This past experience in rapid process  improvement was particularly useful during the COVID epidemic, with the need to combine disaster preparedness, coordinating with emergency management including managing supply chain and physical plant adaptations, staffing shortages and having to develop clinical protocols and training in a small rural health system.   Dr Kaufmann is also passionate about addressing social determinants of care, including coordination between the inpatient team and community services like the “Food is Medicine” program.  When she is not working, Dr Kaufmann loves hiking in the mountains, writing, and hanging out with her large family.
