Walthour-DeLaPerriere Professor of
Chief of Service, Grady Memorial Hospital
I have gained leadership roles in graduate medical education, both in ophthalmology and across medical specialties. After founding a program directors' group within ophthalmology, I helped to develop an organization of program directors for all of medicine under the auspice of the Council of Medical Specialties Society. I am finishing my six-year term with the RRC of Ophthalmology, this last year as vice-chair.
After six years of private practice, my true joy for the past twenty years has been in ophthalmic education of medical students, non-ophthalmic resident physicians, healthcare paraprofessionals, and most importantly, our Emory Eye Center residents. Seventeen years as chief of service at Grady Memorial Hospital has been anything but boring.
