Do you remember your pathophysiology course? What about your pathophysiology professor? We certainly do. The School of Medicine will be forever grateful to Leonard S. Werner ’81-res, and his long-standing commitment to our students.
Since 1981, Dr. Werner has taught generations of medical students with the desire to create knowledgeable, skilled physicians who are lifelong learners. As the former senior associate dean of medical student education, he put together a team to develop the clinical skills department and collaborated to create the simulation center.
Dr. Werner is teaching his last pathophysiology course this year, and to celebrate his legacy, the School of Medicine has created a special medical education fund in his honor. The new fund will provide financial assistance to procure additional educational resources for clinical skills, basic science, clinical science, and other innovations in education.
