Share Your Pride!

If you were trained as a resident or worked on staff at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, you questioned, innovated and kept patient care at the center of your work.

Our top priority is to provide stipends for LHMC residents and fellows to further their education and grow into the confident, expert doctors that our patients deserve. We also fund grand rounds, support the Richard B. Cattell Library and host an annual summer social event for current residents and alumni.

Your participation in the Lahey Clinic Foundation’s Alumni Association reflects your commitment to support our upcoming Lahey-trained residents’ journey to practice medicine as your colleagues.

Today’s Alumni Association boasts more than 2,700 physicians. We hope to see you at one of our events soon!

David J. Schoetz Appointed Interim Chief Academic Officer, LHMC

David J. Schoetz, Jr., MD, recently was appointed Interim Chief Academic Officer, upon the departure of Thomas Read, MD.  Dr. Schoetz is no stranger to the role, having served in this capacity from 2006 through January 2017. Dr. Schoetz received his undergraduate degree from the College of the Holy Cross and his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin. He completed residency training in surgery at Boston University Medical Center, followed by fellowship training in colon and rectal surgery here at Lahey. He joined the professional staff in the Department of Colon and Rectal Surgery in 1982 and served as chair from 1987 through 2002. Since 1999 he has served as Professor of Surgery at Tufts University School of Medicine. A search for a new Chief Academic Officer and Lahey Tufts Dean will commence shortly. In the meantime, please join us in thanking Dr. Read for his service and Dr. Schoetz for taking on the Interim Chief Academic Officer role.
