Snively Visiting Lectureship in Family Medicine

 

The Snively Visiting Lectureship aims to invite leading minds in academic medicine to discuss timely issues in primary care and medical training. The lectureship is in honor of the late Dr. George Snively who was appointed chair of the Department of Family and Community Medicine in 1979, and served until his untimely death in 1983. In tribute to his outstanding leadership, his wife, Dr. Suzanne Snively, established the George G. Snively Visiting Lectureship in Family Medicine.
Over the years, the Snively Lectureship has provided wonderful opportunities for our faculty, residents, students and staff to interact with some of the world’s most highly accomplished thought leaders in medicine, and learn from their experiences to advance our knowledge.
