Two MGH physicians honored with inaugural HMS professorships
Two MGH physicians recently were honored as the first incumbents of two new endowed chairs at Harvard Medical School (HMS).
Ogilvy, an internationally recognized neurovascular neurosurgeon, has worked at the MGH for more than 24 years. He will begin his appointment following a one-year fellowship in endovascular surgery at the University of Buffalo. A ceremony to honor Ogilvy was held June 9 at HMS.
"Dr. Ojemann and his wife, Jean, set a tone within the department that is still felt today," says Ogilvy. "It is fitting that with such a long and positive history at the institution, their influence will be made permanent in the form of the professorship."
Stern was recognized at a ceremony June 24. Since his arrival at the MGH in 1976, he has focused his efforts at the interface of medicine and psychiatry as an award-winning teacher, clinician, clinical researcher and editor.
"I consider it a privilege to hold a chair created in honor of Dr. Cassem, who has exemplified the virtues of the quintessential physician and leader," says Stern.
