IRON MOUNTAIN — Dr. Adam Ryan of Dickinson County Healthcare System recently was presented with the Michigan State University Excellence in Teaching Award.

The MSU College of Human Science’s Class of 2018 chose Ryan for the award in appreciation and recognition of his dedication and ability.

Serving as clinical assistant professor at MSU, Ryan received the award in May at the university’s 2018 graduation ceremony in East Lansing.

“I was thrilled to receive the award,” Ryan said at a recent hospital board meeting. “Coming from the students, it is a great honor and it is also very humbling. I am very appreciative to be involved in educating our future healthcare providers and I thank DCHS, John Schon and his staff for allowing me to do my work.”

Ryan had specialized in obstetrics and gynecology, or OB/GYN, for 20 years. He graduated from MSU’s College of Human Medicine in 1998.

“Dr. Ryan is a wonderful and talented physician as well as a great DCHS ambassador,” DCHS CEO/Administrator John Schon said. “We are fortunate to have him as a member of our medical staff and as an active member of our community.”
