The Leo J. McCarthy, M.D. History of Medicine Lectureship


History is not simply a bland series of dates and names. Nor are the lessons it imparts ever entirely musty. In medicine, there is the desire to always look forward, a push to constantly advance. To do so, casting a glance back is invaluable. For, Leo J. McCarthy, M.D., FRCP (Edin/Ire), this statement informs his passion for the history of medicine.

In May 2015, Dr. McCarthy made a generous gift to establish an endowed lectureship on the history of medicine. The lectureship will bring experts to campus to address topics that not only enlighten and educate students and faculty, but instill the same passion to understand the evolution of their profession.

The IU School of Medicine and the Ruth Lilly Medical Library deeply appreciate Dr. McCarthy’s vision, passion and support to make this lectureship possible now and in the future.
