BUMC Provost and BUSM Dean Karen Antman, MD, and Ken Grundfast, MD, Chair of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, announce the establishment of the Strong-Vaughan Professorship in Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. The professorship that bears their names honors Dr. M. Stuart Strong, the first Chair of the Department of Otolaryngology who started the Otolaryngology residency program in 1951 and who accepted as the first resident, Dr. Charles W. Vaughan.
For more than 50 years, these two outstanding faculty members who were true physician-educators worked together to create one of the strongest Otolaryngology departments in the country. They pioneered the use of the carbon dioxide laser in otolaryngology surgery and made many contributions to the education of several generations of medical students, residents and colleagues. Appropriately, resources from the professorship will be used in the future by chairs of the Department of Otolaryngology to support otolaryngology education and research.
Dean Antman and Dr. Grundfast would like the fund supporting the professorship to continue to grow. If you would like to make a gift to help support the professorship, contact the Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org .
