Dr. Donald Crino, Class of 1982
Dr. Donald Crino was an anesthesiologist for Centrua Health in Colorado. Dr. Crino served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps where he graduated from Flight Surgeon School with honors. Dr. Crino served as President of the anesthesiologist group while at South Denver Anesthesia. Dr. Crino taught at his alma mater University of Colorado Medical School and served as Chief of Medical Staff at Sky Ridge Medical Center in Lone Tree, Colorado. Dr. Crino has given generously to Food Bank of the Rockies to provide food and shelter for the homeless. He has donated time, skills and services to Face the Challenge and the medical missions to Vietnam. He is a dedicated father and husband and enjoys his immediate and extended family’s unending support and love.
On December 7, 2015, Don was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and since then has been unable to work as an anesthesiologist. He has undergone radical treatment for this currently-incurable disease. And even though the treatment was grueling, both physically and mentally, Don has persevered. Today, he continues to give back to the community by teaching full time at the CU Medical School. He teaches the innovative Problem-Based Learning class, a fairly recent concept that teaches medical students to think and reason like a physician while integrating what they are learning in the classroom with clinical case studies. Don sits on the CU Medical Alumni Association’s Board of Directors and the PBL course is one that the board fosters. Don praises God for this new avenue of service in his life.
