Ken Cohen, MD, FACP and CMO of New West Physicians received the Excellence in Precepting Award from CU Skaggs School of Pharmacy. The work performed by preceptors in supervising and training pharmacy students is valued by the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SSPPS). Accreditation standards require students to complete substantial amounts of experiential training and it is recognized that SSPPS would not meet accreditation standards without the support of the practice community in providing practice sites and preceptors, including community pharmacists, health systems pharmacists and providers in the medical community.
Dr. Cohen specializes in Internal Medicine and has been in practice since 1983. He is married and has one son. In his free time, Dr. Cohen enjoys skiing, fly fishing, cycling, mountain climbing, and backpacking.
