Dr. Marjorie Fine and Arthur Fine have made a gift to establish the Marjorie Fine, M.D., Endowed Chair in Clinical General Surgery within the Department of Surgery of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Dr. Fine, the first female to be admitted to and complete an internship/residency in the UCLA Department of Surgery, and her husband Arthur established the chair in 2019 to support a highly regarded surgeon with a commitment to the delivery of clinical general surgery and training generations of clinical general surgeons to follow.
On July 1, 2020, Dr. Catherine J. Juillard (MD ’05, RES ’12), associate professor-in-residence in the UCLA Division of General Surgery and co-director of the Program for the Advancement of Surgical Equity, was named the inaugural Marjorie Fine, M.D., Endowed Chair holder. Dr. Juillard examines methods to improve surgery in under-resourced countries and promotes diversity, equity and inclusion in medical education. She has authored 49 peer-reviewed published papers and has given more than 100 presentations at national and international meetings. Funding from the Fine Chair will enable her to continue advancing research in the delivery of clinical surgery and care, and the patient experience.
