UCSD faculty elected to membership in prestigious professional organizations

Faculty members from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine have been elected to membership in three prestigious organizations, the Association of American Physicians (AAP), the American Society of Clinical Investigators (ASCI), and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS).

At the joint annual meeting of the AAP and ASCI in late April, the AAP elected to membership Samuel A. Bozzette, M.D., Ph.D., director, Center for Research in Patient Centered Care at the VA San Diego Healthcare System and UCSD professor of medicine, and Gary S. Firestein, M.D., UCSD professor of medicine and chief, Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Immunology. Anthony Wynshaw-Boris, M.D., Ph.D., UCSD assistant professor of medicine and pediatrics, was elected to membership in the ASCI.

Also at the AAP/ASCI meeting, the ASCI recognized Kenneth Kaushansky, M.D., chair of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Department of Medicine, as the ASCIs president-elect for 2003-2004. He is currently vice president of the organization.

The AAP is a 121-year-old professional organization dedicated to the pursuit of medical knowledge and the advancement of basic and clinical science and their application to clinical medicine.

Established in 1908, the ASCI includes active physician-scientists who are at the bedside, at the research bench, and at the blackboard.

Five UCSD faculty members have been elected to the AAAS. One of these is Jerrold Olefsky, M.D., UCSD professor of medicine, chief of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, a physician at the VA San Diego Healthcare System, and scientific director of the Whittier Institute for Diabetes in La Jolla.

The AAAS is an international society composed of nearly 4,000 of the world's leading scientists, scholars, artists, businesspeople, and public leaders. Additional UCSD faculty elected to the AAAS were Theodore Groves, Ph.D., professor, and Mark Cach
