Dr. Andrew Ulrich Receives AMA Medal of Valor

Andrew Urlich

The American Medical Association (AMA) has presented BMC’s Vice Chair of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Andrew Ulrich, with the prestigious AMA Medal of Valor in recognition of his courage and leadership during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Boston Medical Center received the first group of critically injured patients only minutes after being notified of the event. Dr. Ulrich played a pivotal role in saving the lives of the 28 patients presenting to the ED from the marathon.

We are very proud of the incredible work that Dr. Ulrich did on that day and continues to do every day here at Boston Medical Center.
