Title: Emeritus Professor
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio, United States
A. William Schreiner, Emeritus Professor, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in internal medicine education.
Dr. Schreiner was a member of the faculty of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine for more than four decades before becoming an Emeritus Professor of Internal Medicine in 1998. In addition to this long held position, Dr. Schreiner directed the Resident Program in Internal Medicine at Christ Hospital between 1978 and 1987 and the Department of Internal Medicine at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Cincinnati between 1963 and 1993. He began teaching at the University of Cincinnati in 1962 as an associate professor of medicine, and in 1967 was made a full professor of internal medicine. He gained prior experience as a clinical investigator and Chief of Medical Services at the Veterans Affairs Hospital and as an attending physician at Cincinnati General Hospital.
With an early interest in science and medicine, Dr. Schreiner attended the University of Cincinnati and earned a Bachelor of Science in 1947 and an MD in 1949 from the institution. He became a diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine in 1958. He knew he was destined for the field of medicine at four years old. As a child, he often suffered through ear infections. Before antibiotics came into motion, his pediatrician, Dr. John Renner would lance his ears. This left a lasting impact and Dr. Schreiner knew it was his path in life.
A highlight of Dr. Schreiner’s career has been the number of young people that he has taught over the years and seeing what they have done, including his grandchildren. In 2017, he was an Honoree of Excellence in Clinical Medicine at the Christ Hospital and Christ Hospital Foundation Dinner. Knowing that his life’s work has been important to so many lives has been a true reward. Dr. Schreiner attributes his success to having great teachers from high school up to medical school. Dr. Marion Blackenhorn was chairman of the Department of Medicine and he was his idol. He was his last chief resident in medicine. He was also inspired by one of his high school teachers, Mrs. Stunfee, his ancient history teacher.
