Middleton honored for exemplifying Texas A&M Core Values and continued contributions to the school
Texas A&M School of Medicine recently awarded Mike Middleton, MD, CPE, FASNC, FACNM, the school’s Distinguished Alumni Award. The award is given to a School of Medicine alumni who has exemplified the Texas A&M Core Values in their medical profession and continues to give back to the school. Voted on by a committee comprised of past winners, former students and selected faculty and staff, the award is presented at the annual School of Medicine and School of Nursing scholarship dinner.
“It is with great pleasure that we congratulate Dr. Mike Middleton. His unwavering commitment both to his profession and his dedication to giving back to the Texas A&M and the community is a true reflection of the core values we instill in our students. We are proud to call Dr. Middleton one of our own,” said Amy Waer, MD, dean of the School of Medicine.
Middleton, a 1989 School of Medicine graduate, went on to complete an integrated residency in nuclear medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, New York. Returning to Texas in 1994, he worked at Scott & White Hospital in Temple in the radiology department, eventually becoming department head. At this time, he also began his teaching career at the School of Medicine, eventually becoming the course director for the continuing medical education Radiology for Primary Care Physician course for 20 years. He also served on the faculty advisory committee for eight years and served as the president of the School of Medicine Alumni Association from 2015 through 2021.
Middleton has also been active in several medical associations including serving as president of the American College of Nuclear Physicians and on the board of the Society of Nuclear Medicine. An internationally acclaimed accordionist, he donates his time and talent performing at senior centers, nursing homes and Alzheimer and memory care groups discussing the role music can play in memory and healing.
“I am deeply honored and humbled to be selected by Medicine and our alumni for this amazing honor. Choosing the Texas A&M College of Medicine was one of my best decisions in my life and career. Thank you for the recognition! Gig ’em,” Middleton said.
