BUSM Alumnus named Editor-in-Chief of JAMA

March 28th, 2011 in Uncategorized

The following letter was sent to all associated with the Boston University School of Medicine from Dr. Karen Antman:

HCB125x190I am delighted to congratulate Howard Bauchner, MD, professor of pediatrics and community health sciences at BUSM and BUSPH, vice chair of academic affairs and director of the Division of Pediatrics at BUSM and BMC, on his appointment as the 16th Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), which was announced earlier today. Howard will begin his tenure there July 1.

JAMA, published continuously since 1883, is the most widely circulated medical journal in the world. Dr. Bauchner follows Catherine D. DeAngelis, MD, MPH, who is leaving the post after 11 years to return to Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore.

Howard has published more than 125 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He has had a senior career mentoring award from the NIH (K-24), and research support from NIH, USDA, MCHB, and numerous foundations. Howard has mentored over a dozen fellows and faculty, many of whom have become successful members of academic departments around the country. In 2003, he became Editor-in-Chief of Archives of Disease in Childhood (ADC), the first US Editor, a publication of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health in the United Kingdom. Howard has served on numerous other editorial boards and is currently on the boards of the British Medical Journal and Journal Watch.

Dr. Bauchner also has served on grant review groups for the NIH and Bureau of Health Professions and is currently on the Advisory Board for the National Library of Medicine. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. He chairs the BUSM Appointment and Promotions Committee and is an Assistant Dean for Continuing Medical Education and Alumni Affairs. In 2009 he received the BUSM Alumni Association’s Distinguished Alumni award.

We congratulate Dr. Bauchner on this crowning achievement and know you all join us in wishing him great success at JAMA.

Dean Antman Announces Student Residence Building Approved

September 22nd, 2010 in Uncategorized

Sent 9/20/10

Boston University School of Medicine
Office of the Dean

Dear Faculty, Students, Staff and Alumni:

I am pleased to announce that the Boston University Board of Trustees voted Thursday, September 16, 2010 to approve the building of a new student residence on BU Medical Campus to be located at 817 Albany Street. Construction will take an estimated 18 months. We hope to welcome the Class of 2016 into the new facility in the fall of 2012!

We are tentatively looking forward to celebrating groundbreaking on Friday, October 29th, when our Dean’s Advisory Board is meeting.

A cadre of generous faculty, parents, alumni and friends has helped make the start of construction possible. We will continue to raise funds because every dollar of support will reduce the rent for each student who lives there.

We are committed to maintaining access to a medical education by the most qualified students by controlling expenses for our students. This building comprises one very important component of this commitment.

Best regards,

Karen Antman, MD
Provost, Boston University Medical Campus

The School of Medicine Receives Largest Gift Ever

May 26th, 2010 in Uncategorized

In August 2008, a Boston University School of Medicine alumna pledged $10.5 million to her school — the largest gift in its history. But she chose to remain anonymous.

Now, more than a year and a half later, University Overseer Shamim Dahod (CGS’76, CAS’78, MED’87) and her husband, Ashraf, are putting a face — or more accurately, two faces — on their contribution, which will establish the Shamim and Ashraf Dahod Breast Cancer Research Center at the School of Medicine. The gift will also endow assistant professor and international scholar positions at the center and support MED’s new residence hall.
