PeaceHealth plastic surgeon named Professor at Loma Linda University

Allen Gabriel, MD
November 2, 2017

PeaceHealth Medical Group plastic surgeon Allen Gabriel, MD, has been promoted to the position of Adjunct Professor in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California. Dr. Gabriel is one of the nation’s youngest Adjunct Professors, having risen through four levels of academic promotion at Loma Linda within just ten years of completing his residency. Adjunct professors have the flexibility to instruct on a part-time basis while maintaining careers outside of academia, allowing Dr. Gabriel to continue his work in plastic and reconstructive surgery at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver, WA.

“I am pleased that the Board of Trustees at Loma Linda has seen fit to grant this promotion,” said Dr. Gabriel of his new position. “The Board seeks professorial candidates who continue to make ongoing contributions to their field of expertise. I am honored to join this outstanding group.”

Prior to being named Adjunct Professor, Dr. Gabriel served as an Adjunct Associate Professor at Loma Linda. The Board of Trustees promoted Gabriel based on his professional achievements, many of which were noted in letters from respected colleagues:

“Dr. Gabriel has built a national reputation for excellence in breast surgery. Despite being a surgeon in a busy practice, he continues to speak frequently at national and international events, write important book chapters, and generate new research publications in plastic surgery journals, where his work is widely cited. Dr. Gabriel is invested in his local community where he has helped organize breast cancer awareness programs, events, and helped lobby for state legislation for his patients.”
