An Evening with Dr. Seldin - Location Change

An Evening with Dr. Donald Seldin (Note: New Location)
Thursday, June 29, 2017 | At The Hockaday School
Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Family Center for the Arts
Location will change due to an overwhelming response to this talk. Please check back for details.
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Donald Seldin, William Buchanan Professor of Internal Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Center, moderated by Dr. Michael Emmett, Chairman of the Department of Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center.

Dr. Seldin, widely known as the Father of Dallas Medicine, had an exceptional beginning in the medical field. In 1947, as a recent medical school graduate and captain in the U.S. Army, Seldin was summoned to Dachau, where he testified as an expert witness in the trial of Nazi doctor accused of causing the deaths of some 15 inmates following the performance of liver biopsies without sterilization or anesthesia. The court found the defendant guilty of murder and sentenced him to death.

Dr. Seldin credits this experience for his dedication to the practice of humane medicine, which he has passed on to all of his students. Soon after his return to the U.S., Seldin moved to Dallas and helped transform a sleepy medical school into the world-class institution UT Southwestern Medical School is today.

Free. RSVP required through Eventbrite.
*We haven't cancelled an event for the last 6 years. However, please note that in the case of an urgent need, all programs are subject to change without notice.
