John Hunter, MD elected to Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh

We heard last week that OHSU's own John Hunter, MD was made an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

Dr. Hunter is Professor and Chair of the Department of Surgery, and is also an active member of the OHSU History of Medicine Society, which supports the lecture series managed by HC&A. As an honorary fellow of the college, Dr. Hunter joins an international group of over 17,000 Fellows and Members.

Tracing its roots to 1505, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is one of the oldest surgical societies in the world. Since that time, it has been dedicated to maintaining and promoting the highest standards of surgical practice. The college is also committed to preserving its long history through the Surgeons' Hall Museums, which itself is historic - founded in 1832, it is Scotland's oldest museum.

HC&A joins the rest of the university in congratulating Dr. Hunter on this honor!

Thank you Dr. Hunter!!! There are a lot of good Doctor's everywhere, but you understand the human element of your profession that separates the " Great " Docs from the others... Keep up what you do, everyday....
