The first annual Jack W. McAninch, MD Endowed Lectureship in Surgical Urology took place on September 25, 2015 with visiting professor, Anthony R. Mundy, MB BS (Hon), PhD (Hon), MS, FRCP, FRCS, Professor of Urology and Consultant Urological Surgeon at University College London Hospitals. The event was held at the UCSF Mission Bay campus for a well-attended audience of faculty, fellows and residents. The topic, “Contemporary Development in Anterior Urethroplasty” was delivered with humor and wisdom, brimming with quips that lit up social media.
The event honors Jack W. McAninch, MD, FACS, FRCS (Hon) who officially retired in 2013 but can still be found from time-to-time in the corridors of San Francisco General Hospital where he was chief since 1977. During his time, he mentored countless residents and 25 fellows who have since fanned out across the country where they head academic programs of their own.
“Given his dedication to teaching, a visiting professorship in his name, is a fitting reminder of his enduring legacy,” says Peter Carroll, MD, MPH, Professor and Chair of the Department of Urology, UCSF.
This first event was made possible by the generous donors to the Jack W. McAninch, MD Endowed Lectureship in Surgical Urology fund.
