D. William Schlott, M.D., a specialist in internal medicine, has been
named the first Philip A. Tumulty Associate Professor of Medicine at The Johns
Hopkins University School of Medicine. He will assume his position on the
full-time faculty on July 1, 1994.
Schlott, 57, graduated from the School of Medicine in 1962 and took his internship and residency training at Hopkins. After brief periods at the National Cancer Institute and the University of Connecticut, he rejoined the Hopkins staff as an assistant professor in 1967. He was named an associate professor in the Department of Medicine in 1992.
Schlott has served on the medical school's Admissions Committee, the Deans Committee for Part-time Faculty Policy, the Hopkins Alumni Association Executive Committee, and the Deans Committee for Educational Policy.
In addition, he is a member of the American College of Physicians, the American Medical Association, the Baltimore City Medical Society and the American Society of Internal Medicine.
The Tumulty associate professorship is an endowment named after the first director of the division of internal medicine at Hopkins, the late Philip A. Tumulty. A renowned champion of the humanistic approach to medicine, Tumulty was once honored by the mayor of Baltimore who named December 10, 1983, "Dr. Philip A. Tumulty Day." The chair is endowed by Tumulty's colleagues, students, friends and patients.
"Dr. Schlott represents the compassionate commitment to patient care that Dr. Tumulty exemplified. We are honored that he has accepted the award," said John D. Stobo, M.D., chairman of the Department of Medicine and senior associate dean for clinical science.
