Jackson doctor named Mississippi’s family physician of the year

Isaac Aultman, MD, of Jackson, was recently honored as Mississippi’s Family Physician of the Year at the Mississippi Academy of Family Physicians annual meeting.

Aultman recently retired from a 40-year career in family medicine, most recently in private practice in Jackson’s Fondren neighborhood. The Seminary native graduated from Seminary High School, earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, and went on to complete medical school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson in 1971. He completed family practice residency at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, before returning to Mississippi to practice medicine.

After practicing in the Jackson area, Aultman took over Dr. Frank Wood’s practice in Jackson in 1989 and operated in the same Fondren location until December 2016.

Aultman was awarded the Central Medical Society’s Exemplary Physician Award in 2006. He graduated magna cum laude from medical school and earned the Anatomy Award, the Roche Award and was part of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Besides his membership in the MAFP, he has been a member of the Central Medical Society, the Mississippi State Medical Association, the American Medical Association, and the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Aultman and his wife, Rachel, live in Flowood. They have three children, William Aultman of Cumming, Georgia; Emily Aultman of Brandon, Miss.; and Daniel Aultman of Kochi, Japan.
