by MBJ Staff
Published: April 24,2011
Dr. Joe Files, professor of medicine and director of the Division of Hematology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, has received his mastership from the American College of Physicians, joining a select group of Mississippi physicians who have received the national organization’s highest recognition.
Four Mississippians, all University of Mississippi Medical Center faculty, have received mastership since it was established in 1923. They include Dr. Robert Blount, Dr. Harper Hellums, Dr. Peter Blake and Dr. James Achord.
A native Mississippian and University of Mississippi graduate, Files earned the M.D. at the Medical Center in 1972. He completed his residency at UMMC in internal medicine, including a year as chief resident. He then attended the University of Washington in Seattle for his hematology fellowship, where his primary focus was in the field of bone marrow transplant. He returned to join the Medical Center faculty in 1979.
Files has been an active member in the ACP for more than 30 years and served as the governor of Mississippi for the college from 2001-05. His primary focus has been patient care and resident education.
