Eugene Braunwald MD - Harvard Medical School
UCSD Founding Chair of the Department of Medicine
Founding Chair, TIMI Study Group
Distinguished Hersey Professor of Medicine
Harvard Medical School

He has been called the "Maestro of American Cardiology" and his work has transformed the face of cardiovascular medicine.  Braunwald's "Heart Disease" continues to be a best selling textbook  and is cited not only for its content, but Braunwald's exceptional ability to convey.   For several years he served simultaneously as the Chair of Medicine at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Chair of Medicine at the Beth Israel Hospital.  His incredible impact upon the world of medicine has been especially felt here, in San Diego, as he was the Founding Chair of the Department of Medicine at UCSD. Come hear him reflect on his career experiences at the first Physician Scientist Colloquium of 2013 on January 14th at 5:30pm.


The student-run Physician Scientist Colloquium (PSC) serves to foster a sense of community for San Diego physician-scientists in all levels of training and practice, from medical students to emeritus professors. At each bi-monthly event, our chosen career perspectives speaker does not give a science-talk, but instead reflects on his or her career and the evolving field of biomedical sciences. We have had the honor of hosting Nobel Laureates, chairs of top medical departments in the nation, the CEO and founder of multiple multi-billion dollar medical research companies, professors who have made fundamental biomedical discoveries, and many more who are recorded below. Once a year, a PSC Summer Series Panel is held - knowledgeable professors are invited to discuss a topic of interest and importance for physician-scientists. We welcome all interested undergraduates, medical students, MSTP students, residents, fellows, faculty to attend. The PSC run by current MSTP students with a faculty mentor, and all events are hosted by the UCSD Medical Scientist Training Program.
