Dr. Crownover's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Crownover "A San Diego native, Dr Crownover was commissioned through the USAF Academy in 1989 after graduating magna cum laude. He completed his Doctorate of Medicine degree at the Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, MD. Dr Crownover finished residency training in Family Practice at David Grant Medical Center, Travis AFB, CA, in 1996; he has been board certified in Family Medicine since. He began teaching graduate medical education in 2002 after serving 6 years as a full scope family physician and department chief twice. He completed a primary care faculty development fellowship at Michigan State in 2003, and promptly deployed to Balad Air Base, Iraq where he earned the Bronze Star while leading the initiation of Air Force medical services at the primary air hub in theater. Given his early career successes, he was selected by the USAF Surgeon General to lead a team to stand up a new Family Medicine residency at Nellis AFB. From 2005-2013, Dr Crownover twice served as program director at two hospitals and three times successfully achieved maximum length program certification from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The Uniformed Services University recognized him with promotion to the academic rank of Associate Professor and an Outstanding Preceptor award in 2012. In 2008, he was awarded the US Air Force Field Grade Officer award for Clinical Excellence, selected #1 over 1,880 other senior Medical Corps officers. He has presented nationally at many medical conferences, published in multiple medical journals, and edited for three different national groups."
