College of Podiatric Medicine Faculty Member Named 2014 Doctor of the Year at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center
Michael Canales, D.P.M., adjunct faculty member at Kent State University’s College of Podiatric Medicine and 2004 graduate of the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, was honored as the 2014 Doctor of the Year at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center. This is the first time a podiatrist has earned the distinction in the nearly 150-year history of the hospital.
“The laurel is not my own, but rather the mirror image of the brilliant folks I surround myself with,” Canales says. “The diligence of my family, friends, nurses, medical assistants, administrators and resolute residents allows me to shine. I look ahead to experiencing more of the innumerable rewards of treating the sick and injured.”
Bryan Caldwell, D.P.M., interim dean of Kent State’s College of Podiatric Medicine, says “The students at Kent State University's College of Podiatric Medicine are fortunate to have clinical training from podiatric physicians such as Dr. Canales. He is certainly an example of excellence in action.”
St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is located in Cleveland and was founded in 1865.
