DR. JOSEPH DVORKIN MEMORIAL LECTURE

 

Joseph Dvorkin, B.A., M.D., FRCP(C), FACP, FACC (1917-1976) was born in Calgary, and received his M.D. Degree from the University of Alberta in 1943. After discharge from the R.C.A.M.C. in 1945 with the rank of Major, he was appointed as a Clinical Professor at the University of Alberta. A pioneer in heart care, he belonged to the team of physicians who initiated diagnostic cardiology and who were involved in Canada's first open heart surgery procedure at the University of Alberta Hospital. The principles he lived by were professional commitment, integrity, and honesty, thus fulfilling his quest to ease the suffering of his fellow man.

 

The Dvorkin lectureship is awarded to a renowned speaker for the Mazankowski Cardiac Sciences Research Day/Medicine Grand Rounds.
