Beginnings — The School Of Medicine The history of the University of Maryland School of Medicine began with John Beale Davidge, M.D., who came to Baltimore from Scotland. In 1807, Davidge, James Cocke, M.D., of Virginia, and James Shaw built an anatomical theater near the corner of Liberty and Saratoga Streets. Within a month, the building was demolished by a mob of “ignorant neighbors” angered about the human dissections being performed. That December, the General Assembly passed a bill to incor- porate the College of Medicine of Maryland with Davidge as Dean. In 1812, the construction of Davidge Hall was completed. This was the beginning. From this beginning have come many accomplishments in medical education. The University of Maryland School of Medicine is credited with many firsts from being the first to require anatomical dissec- tion to being the first to introduce preventive medicine courses. 3 Beginnings — The Class of 1 986 The journey through four years of medical school started in August of 1982 when 175 of us with diverse backgrounds (nurses, engineers, a Ph.D. in philosophy, a nun, a pharmacist, a physician’s assistant, a Ph.D. in nutrition, a mother of three, a Pharm. D., techs, a Ph.D. in biochemistry, physicists, teachers, and recent college grads), ranging in age from 18 to 36, gathered at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore to become the Class of 1986.

Outstanding attractions include Harborplace, historic markets, and the Orioles. The Journey We started out, certain that our ignorance of medicine would be remedied by hard work — either ours or the faculty’s. Now we graduate, less ignorant, but keenly aware of what we do not know and how to look it up at 3 A.M., when the library, and our eyelids, are closed. We have grown up. Even if we could buy our own beer as freshmen, we have changed to meet the demands of medical teamwork. The eternal mysteries of man and woman, birth and death, have been revealed to us without fanfare as we listened with our stethoscopes and our own hearts to our patients. We have snatched patients from Death’s door — with a little help from residents, attending physicians, nurses, and dieticians. We have occasionally cured somebody’s particular illness while hardly making a dent in the ills of society and none whatsoever on the AIDS juggernaut. We have orchestrated million-dollar miracles and sent patients home with unfilled prescriptions and loose change in their pockets. Small victories, perhaps Pyrrhic, but victories nevertheless, and considerably better than selling pork futures. A few of us had some other experiences, like marriage or a trip to Vail. But unlike the proverbial honeymoon night or first time on skis, medical school is par excellence the experience to write home about. So our families have had the best time of it (along with the commercial banks). For example: Athlete’s Dad: “My son just ran a marathon in under three hours.” Med Student’s Dad: “So what? My son just held three retractors and an air saw for six hours while reciting the blood supplies to the diarthrodial joints.” Athlete’s Dad: “Well, my son had a broken leg.” Med Student’s Dad: “My son could fix YOUR son’s broken leg.” As one of my friends put it: “I am proud of the University and my classmates except those whose names begin with S, since they shared my anatomy table and made my life miserable. I’d like to forget my first semester — as well as the other seven. But I am waxing nostalgic at the thought that I will NEVER EVER BE A MEDICAL STUDENT AGAIN.” Yet in retrospect, when his annual income minus his malpractice premiums equals the cost of a secondhand ski bib, he will call these the best years of his life — when he met his closest friends and worst bugbears, finally understood why people use Dial, and why they go to such great lengths to “unwind.” Now we are warned that future M.D.’s will practice in goldfish bowls. I disagree. Goldfish are isolated except for their periodic manna from above. Medicine will be more like water- skiing in polluted waters behind a boat whose propellers are fouled with red tape, surrounded by piranhas waiting for the slightest falter. It is metaphorical, though I am fairly sure whom the piranhas represent. But I am not sure if the patient is piloting the boat. These days, every medical newsletter has an article which, stripped of polish, laments, “Medicine ain’t no fun anymore.” Well, I hope it ain’t so, since we have worked this hard and that long to see our pictures here. We won’t change careers now (except for one colleague who has intrusive thoughts of becom- ing a fruitmonger), but it would numb our expectations to step out in mortarboard, clipboard, and gown to a chorus of “NEVER MIND.” Ours is a noble profession. Health is the foundation, the sine qua non, of anyone’s life plan. The term “health care provider” is irksome, but physicians are providers in a most general sense. We maintain and restore people to be whatever they want to be. Unrestrained, our grandness of purpose can inflate to grandiosity, as sometimes happens on morning rounds. But health remains as a basic human need like quiche, clothing, and shelter — and that three letter word, “$$$.” We have also learned to let go — when the healing arts can no longer heal and Nature must take its course, as it inevitably does anyway. At such times, we may have turned away from our “defeats” to address some new case with renewed vigor, anxious to catch some fleeting, no doubt eponymic, sign or symptom an hour earlier so we could apply the definitive treat- ment and save a life. To save lives, yes. More often, to provide comfort; to help an asthmatic or emphysematous person to breathe; to start a life without handicap and let it end, when it must, with dignity and self-determination; to relieve pain and often helplessly stand by because we cannot confront its cause. Patient care (taking “patient” as adjective or noun) is now our focus but we should not neglect the scientific knowledge which is the especial legacy of our medical faculty. To paraphrase Newton, if we have seen farther than other men, it is because we have stood on the shoulders of these giants. (And also because we have listened to WOMEN). We consoled ourselves early on by believing that medicine, like beauty or dermatology, was dazzling but only skin-deep. We have since learned that dermatology treats a spectrum of systemic disease, and the physician is like a Master of All Trades, not a mere Jack or Jill. Put crudely, medicine is a game of intellectual hardball, won or lost by a footnote. And when we lose, we lose big and it hurts. An old taunt says that physicians are the only people who get paid for practicing. If by that we mean the assimilation of new knowledge until it is perfectly applied, then w e shall certainly be practicing our entire lives. Those eternal mysteries of human nature may be old wine, but like generic drugs, they keep appearing in new bottles. By graduating, we have passed a major milestone. But the overall journey towards better patient care and personal com- petence is never-ending. My best wishes to all of you on that journey. Pete Novalis 10 I Started Out As A Child . . . We all did. But we all grew up with different backgrounds. Many of us were born right here in Maryland, but some were born in other states and even other countries. Some of us were only children; some shared their lives with brothers and sisters. Some lived in cities, some in suburbs, some in the country. And our parents came from all walks of life. But could any of our parents have known, as they watched us grow up, that one day these 170 very different babies would band together to form the Class of 1986? How many of your classmates can you recognize? Look carefully! If you’re stumped, there’s a key later on in this book.

Behind every great class, there is a great note service Within the next week or so, we shall be distributing your bone boxes for the semester. They are rather large and cumbersome sorts of creatures, so you’ll have to arrange now for some sort of transport, because bicycles and bone boxes simply do not go together. So you’ll have to arrange for a set of wheels, so to speak, if you don’t already have a set. If, however, you elect to use public transport, please, by God, don’t open your bone box on the bus! For the past few years, we’ve had a perfectly good thing going downstairs with people donating their bodies, and the last thing we need is to have some freshman open his box on the bus. Before you know it, we’ll have the Sun- paper knocking at our door, wanting to know the whole affair, and there you have it, we’ll have gone and ruined a perfectly good thing. So, please, use decorum. Are there any queries? 1 GROSS ANATOMY GROSS ANATOMY 1 : £+ • nlOGilMISTRY BIOCHEJUSTHY BIOCHEMISTRY v.. BIOCHEMISTRY BIOCHEMISTRY BHIAV. SOC.

What did we do when we just couldn’t read another paragraph of pharmacology? Or look at one more impossi- ble slide of macronodular cirrhosis? How did we cope with those sleepless on-call nights, missing lab results, and the V.A.? In many ways.

We survived. 51 Freshman Follies ' ‘Blinded by Science’’ May 9, 1983 Toby reviews choreography with the Tobettes. “Reaganomics” forces Giles to play guinea pig at the Center for Vaccine Development. Dave prepares for the lead role in “Tootsie” (or his residency photo?). f 52 The Follies were a yearly op- portunity to poke fun at our classes, our teachers, our situa- tion, and ourselves. Through slides, videos, and live skits, our Follies crew rose hilariously to the occasion. Behind the scenes: filming “CJ M A B.” Marilyn and Natalie find new ways to pay their tuition in “Reaganomics.” The lecherous Dean of Admissions meets his match: Dave and Giles rehearse “Tootsie.” 53 EAT IT!!!

Emotions varied. For some, residency was of ultimate importance; nothing in life mattered more. For others, the residency was just another step to becoming a practicing physician. For all, the process was similar. Hohum . . . just another day??? Mitch pitches a dollar in the pot. We assembled in the MSTF and waited. Then we got the news! Maria wins and gets a hug from Bernice! 74 MATCH DAY, 1986, was a successful one (55% got their first choice; 11% their second choice; and 5% their third choice.). Medicine, the most popular specialty, was selected by 42% of the class. Surgery was second, the choice of 18%. OB-GYN, pediatrics, and family practice were selected by 8%, 6%, and 6% respectively. A total of 113 programs in 23 states were chosen. Thirty-three class members will be staying at (JMH, and 31 others will be elsewhere in Baltimore. To enjoy the food and sink the floor! Then ... it was off to PJ’s! To party! 75 Senior Picnic May 18, 1986 The hard work of Kelly, Jeff, and friends, beautiful weather, and just being together resulted in a great picnic at Patapsco State Park. Steve must have said something funny (or was it the three kegs of beer?). Check out the legs on those orthopods! Jeff oversees the chefs (or maybe he just likes to stay close to the food). Dessert judges face a tough decision (Barbara’s Duncan Hines brownies did not win). Terry and Mike 76 Vance, Cathy, Jan and friends guard the soft drink supply. Steve and Carola with some tall, thin guy in a funny hat (Pete???). Allen, Colleen, and Gian Time to visit, enjoy good food and sample dessert contest winners (apricot whiskey cake, chef Steve Fanto, and Kahlua pecan pie, chef Natalie Beachy), demonstrate athletic prowess in softball, or show off new family members.

The words of our classmates expressed our feelings. From Melba’s prayer . . . We thank you for these past 4 years, each year with its own unique characteristic. It has been a time of growth in awareness, in knowledge of medicine, in concern for others. We were brought together; bonds of friendship developed and deepened; love was shared. From Dennis’s address . . . Over these 4 years, we have worked hard, made many sacrifices and overcome personal hardships. We were taught by some outstanding faculty members, some of whom we are honoring today. We have made many ac- quaintances and lifelong friends. We have had our struggles, yet always managed to pull through, often with the help of one another. We have also relied heavily on our families, for without their support, it is doubtful we would have been suc- cessful in this undertaking. Thus, we are here this morning in celebration for reaching this goal, in recognition of all our past efforts, and to say thank you to our families and friends.

When not poring over the books or working up admissions, he enjoyes sleeping and eating. His most memorable moments during these four years in- clude passing National Boards Part I (and Part II!) and traveling to Israel Senior year. FOUAD MAHMOUD ABBAS Obstetrics Gynecology Johns Hopkins Hospital Baltimore, MD Before joining us, “Ford” completed a Biology degree at University of Maryland at Baltimore County. As a noted jokester, Fouad is probably one of the few of us able to laugh at these past four years. Fouad and his camera became well known sights around campus and his slide shows were always looked forward to at the Follies. When not cramming for exams, he enjoys the night life of Baltimore-Washington, racquet ball and traveling. During his travels he and Maria met and married in Greece prior to graduation. JEFFREY ROBERT ABRAMS Internal Medicine Brooke Army Medical Center San Antonio, TX Before entering medical school, Jeff graduated from University of Maryland at College Park receiving a B.S. in Zoology. When not hitting the books, Jeff en- joys playing piano, composing music, and working with computers. June 23, 1984 is a very special date for Jeff — the date of his marriage to Jennifer Helms. He would like to thank his wife, his parents, and his parents-in-law for their support. 90 SAMUEL ROBERT AKMAN Obstetrics Gynecology Greater Baltimore Medical Center Baltimore, MD One of several in our class from Pikesville High School, Sam attended the University of Miami with a major in marine biology. During med school, Sam served on the Curriculum Committee and the Clinical Years Committee. He will be remembered for his great contributions to the Freshman and Sophomore follies. Sam spends his off-time at the track and will never forget hitting the triple by playing his medical school admission date. He met his fiancee, Lisa Lann, while on rounds at the GMCC. “Go, or stay . . . but do it because it is what you wish to do.” — Khan Noonian Singh, Star Trek MARIA LUIZA C. ALBUQUERQUE Pediatrics Baylor College Affiliate Houston, TX A Bryn Mawr graduate with a major in Chemistry Spanish, Maria went to Brazil before entering medical school. Her good memories are many including good friends, the Hot-Cold theory lecture, discussions with Lorna and the symposium speakers. She enjoyed most of her clinical rotations and fourth year electives having worked with some excellent attendings and residents. Everyone will remember Maria winning the money on Match Day. While she enjoyed G.M.’s parties and the help of OSA (especially B, J and D), she would not have made it through without Bill. MARILYN FRANCES ALTHOFF Emergency Medicine Medical College of Pennsylvania Philadelphia, PA A former laboratory research technician at Hopkins, Marilyn is a colorful addi- tion to our class. She has an earthy sense of humor which has made medical school tolerable to herself and others. An imaginative and creative person, she has acted in the Follies. She would not have made it through without the support of Sam, her boyfriend. 91 STEPHANIE HARRIS APPLEBAGM Pathology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD After receiving a BS in Zoology from College Park, Stephanie entered our medical school class. When not studying, she enjoys socializing at the Cam- pus Inn, P.J. Crickett’s, Synapse, and the Penn Restaurant. Orioles opening games are special to her. She also enjoys trips to Ocean City with Abby. The highlight of her medical school years was her marriage to Dr. Robert Ap- plebaum. She could not have made it through school without her friends. DOREEN McMAHON ARION Family Practice Fairfax Hospital — VA Vienna, VA Doreen was a psychology major at Dartmouth and she spent three years working at NIH before coming to medical school. During these last four years, Doreen has still found time for bicycling (Maryland State Championship level), knitting (much of it in class), counted cross stitch, hiking and camping. Doreen will be remembered for keeping us all supplied with lots of smiles and with University of Maryland Medical School tee-shirts. After residency, Doreen and her husband, Douglas, a physicist, plan to live in New Hampshire where she will practice family medicine. H. SCOTT BARSHACK Psychiatry St. Mary’s Hospital San Francisco, CA Prior to medical school, Scott earned a BA in Psychology from Haverford Col- lege. While he would truly like to forget Freshman Year and Surgery, the day fifty cents deposited in a candy machine resulted in three candies was certain- ly a memorable moment. His favorite pastimes included sleeping, jogging and vacations. He would have never made it through without the support of Stu, Dave and Rich. Quote: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’’ 92 BRYAN KURT BARTLE General Surgery University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Although Bryan says he wouldn’t have made it through these last four years without “thoughts of delayed gratification,” he has lots of good memories . . . of his general surgery rotation, free weekends, working hard, Fridays at the Campus Inn, and Dottie and Joan in the OSA. He predicts that graduation day will be his most memorable moment — although appreciation from his pa- tients also made for some nice feelings along the way. Bryan’s hobbies includ- ed tennis, skiing, and “anything recreational”! His undergraduate days were spent as a biochemistry and chemical engineering major at College Park. RONALD LAWRENCE BAUER General Surgery West Virginia University Hospital Morgantown, WV Ron came to us from Towson State after picking up a BA in Biology. Like most medical students, he’d most like to forget biophysics and would have never made it through with a number 2 pencil. He found that sleeping and eating became a great way to kill that free hour at the end of the day. In spite of it all, he thinks he finally became a doctor. Quote: “Don’t worry about studying that because it won’t be on the test!” NATALIE ANNE BEACHY Psychiatry University of Virginia Charlottesville, VA Prior to joining our class, Natalie received a B.A. in Chemistry from Goucher College where she earned membership in Phi Beta Kappa. During medical school, she participated in many activities including acting as HDME Representative, Freshman class treasurer, Junior Senior class secretary, Yearbook committee and notetaker. Her most memorable course was IHB (interesting). When not buried in her studies, she enjoys 1920’s jazz, antique collecting, photography and square dancing. She gives many thanks to Karen and Val for all their support. SISTER MELBA JEAN BEINE, O.P. Internal Medicine Mercy Hospital Baltimore, MD Melba had done two unusual things before joining the class of ' 86: She became a Dominican nun and she worked as a microbiologist. A good thing for us, too, since many of us would not have passed Micro without her timely review sessions and many lifesaving Pharm notesets. Receiving the letter tell- ing her she was being considered for AOA was a highlight of Melba’s med school experience, while those Sophomore Neuro exams were the low point. “. . . And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal.” — Luke 9:2 ROBERT MICHAEL BENITEZ Internal Medicine University of Virginia Charlottesville, VA Mike received a B.A. in Biology from Western Maryland College. When not studying the many intricacies of medicine, he enjoys playing softball and his own compositions on the guitar. He has done extensive research on the bars of Fells Point and 8 x 10 on Monday evenings. An occasional flick at the Charles also provided some diversion from his studies. BRENT ASHER BERGER Internal Medicine Washington Hospital Center Washington, DC Prior to joining our class, Brent received a B.A. in Natural Science from Johns Hopkins University. His most memorable moment was getting accepted to medical school, by phone, two days before classes began. On the other hand, his first attempt at drawing blood would best be forgotten. When not cram- ming, he plays softball. Somehow, he found time to be chairman for JHU Class of ' 80’s five year reunion. Coffee and his great friends from the class of ’85 helped him through school. ‘‘Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” — Theodore Roosevelt BRENT CLARKE BIRELY General Surgery Union Memorial Hospital Baltimore, MD Brent, a Chemistry major from Duke University, was the class president dur- ing the first year of medical school. For Brent, the best part of these years was getting to know the people in class. Making it through was easier with support from friends and family and with professors like Dr. Theodore Woodward as role models. Brent tells us (and we remember!) that his least favorite moment came the day he decided to sit in the fourth row of Dr. Kessel’s Immunology lecture because he thought it would keep him awake! “Sometimes you just gotta say ‘What the — from Risky Business LAUREN LAUCK BOGUE Pediatrics Sinai Hospital Baltimore, MD A special year for Lauren was 1968, the year she graduated from Wellesley College with a B.A. in Art History, and married Bob. The proud mother of three (Jennifer, 14; Kimberly 12; and Peter, 10), she rose above Pat Flynn and Les Forgosh’s teasing about her age. Lauren remembers the relief finishing Sophomore year (especially Pharm) brought. Involved in many extracurricular activities, she sings in the church choir, acted as a class officer, and received a Dean’s Research Fellowship. Relaxing at home with her family and vacation- ing in Vermont provided pleasant diversions from academics. Her favorite poem is Robert Frosts’s “The Road Not Taken.’’ GERARD ANTHONY BURNS Internal Medicine Washington Hospital Center Washington, D.C. Gerard graduated from UMBC with a double major in Biology and Archeology. He has not lost sight of his interest in archeology; he would love to end up as an Egyptologist and moonlight as a doctor between digs. Gerard’s most memorable moment would have been Sophomore EKG lab, but having spent one too many nights at the 8 x 10, he does not remember it. He fantasizes about being a family practitioner in Luxor, Egypt, but we hope he will come back to Baltimore to visit his mummy. 95 NATHAN ERIC CARNELL Internal Medicine University of Maryland Hospital Baltimore, MD Eric picked up both a B.S. and a M.S. in Zoology at College Park before arriv- ing at CIMAB with his wife, Sangwoon. He feels that learning to study for himself rather than for grades is his greatest accomplishment during medical school. He was also pleased to be elected to AOA. In his spare time, Eric goes to the movies and bikes with his wife. “Anybody who has traveled this far on a fool’s errand, has no choice but to uphold the honor of fools by completing the errand.” — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. LUCY CHANG Internal Medicine George Washington University Washington, DC Lucy, a Biochemistry major and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, graduated from Cornell University with distinction. She worked at NIH doing research during holidays resulting in a publication in 1982. Somehow, through the help of M a Bell (daily calls of about an hour per day), she maintained a long distance rela- tionship with her boyfriend in Portland, Oregon resulting their engagement in April of senior year. When not studying or talking on the phone, she enjoys knitting, stitchery and shopping. EUGENIO ROBERTO CHINEA Internal Medicine University of San Antonio San Antonio, TX One of the many College Park Alumni in our class, Roberto graduated with a BS in Chemistry. In medical school, he continued his college interest in volleyball by playing on intramural teams. When not burning the midnight oil, he enjoys photography, skiing and traveling. Senior year he found time to visit Canada. Although entering internal medicine, Roberto hopes to specialize in cardiology or gastroenterology. 96 JONG WOO CHOE Urology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Jong received a BS from University of Maryland at College Park before joining our class. CHARLES JUNGCHUL CHOI Pediatrics University of Maryland Baltimore, MD A Virginia Tech graduate, Charlie is an engineer who has ended up in pediatrics, somehow. However, he says it all makes sense and fits his long- term goal of practicing medicine in the Third World countries. During medical school, Charlie has spent his spare time reading and playing tennis and volleyball. Highlights include finishing the surgery rotations at the VA. ROBERT ANDREW CLAYTON Otolaryngology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Bob attended Princeton prior to joining our class. 97 MARY KATHRYN CONRAD LO Picture Not Available Psychiatry Sheppard Pratt Towson, MD After earning a Biological Sciences degree from Goucher College, Mary worked in research labs at Johns Hopkins Medical Institute for four years. Her research topics included immunology, neuroscience and pathology. When not poring over the books, she enjoys reading, camping and listening to music. “Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.” — Desiderata COLLEEN LEE COOK Pediatrics University of Maryland Hospital Baltimore, MD Collen spent her undergraduate years as an Animal Sciences major at Cornell and then worked as a microbiologist in the department of Pediatrics at CISUHS (which explains two of her major interests — Pediatrics and microbiology!). When she reflects on these last four years, her best memories are of the peo- ple — friends and faculty. She would just as soon forget “K questions.” Col- leen and her husband Alan, a scientist at the National Cancer Institute enjoy traveling and camping. Their major project, however, has been their son, Gian Luca, born in December 1985. STEVEN LEE COOK Obstetrics Gynecology North Carolina Baptist Hospital Winston-Salem, NC A Howard County native, Steve attended GMBC where he met his wife Eve in Freshman chemistry class. He graduated with a B.S. in Biology. During medical school, Steve owned and managed Chaparral Enterprises, a construc- tion company. When not exercising or doing construction work, he and Eve explored the Appalachians. The feeling of utter relaxation after the National Boards is the sweetest memory Steve will take away with him. 98 GRACE ANN CORDTS Internal Medicine Francis Scott Key Medical Center Baltimore, MD Grace’s very interesting background includes a B.S. in nursing, a M.P.H. from Hopkins, and a M. S. in psychiatric nursing. She has worked as a family counselor, in a biofeedback lab at Georgetown, and has taught self-care courses to groups ranging from prisoners to cancer patients. We asked Grace to tell us what stands out during these last four years, what she would most like to remember, and what she would most like to forget. Her reply: “The people, in answer to all three questions!” This spring Grace and her husband Dan celebrated both graduation and the birth of their first child, Emma, on April 18, 1986. STEVEN FRANCIS CRAWFORD Internal Medicine Union Memorial Hospital Baltimore, MD Steve received his B.A. in Biology Psychology from LaSalle college in Philadelphia. Over the past four years, he’s enjoyed putting on the Ritz at the Hyatt, snorkeling in St. Croix and horseback riding. In addition, he survived his first attempt at skiing at Deep Creek during medical school. Many of us remember him for his Follies contributions including Neurotic News and Scramble Science with George. His most memorable moment occurred June 16, 1984 — the date of his marriage to Kelly. JEFFREY PAUL CRAMER Family Practice Medical Center of Delaware Wilmington, DE A pharmacy major at the University of Connecticut, Jeff dispensed drugs at Hopkins before embarking on a career in medicine. When not studying or working as a pharmacist, he enjoys skiing, running and furniture building. While vacations were important for suurvival to Graduation Day (his memorable moment), he wouldn’t have made it without the support of his wife, Janie, and unwavering affection of his dog, Timber. “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.” — Booker T. Washington 99 MAURICE CUFFEE Internal Medicine Washington Hospital Center Washington, DC Maurice earned a B.A. in Economics from Haverford. Not losing interest in the field, he attempted to start his own business during med school. Those of us who did Junior rotations with Maurice will recall that he is also a mighty fine cook. Maurice says he first realized that there must be a God when he went to Dave Felton’s wedding. He wouldn’t be graduating without the support of his mother, his aunts, Courtney, and Butch, the Wonder Dog. ROBERT WAYNE DALY Ophthalmology Mount Sinai Hospital New York, NY To Bob, the best part of the last four years “is that it turned out to be the right choice, proved to me because it was relatively painless and very enjoyable most of the time. Also, the people are great.’’ Prior to medical school, Bob did his undergraduate work in math at Williams College and then spent time as a high school teacher and bartending. During medical school, he must have spent some time studying (AOA membership attests to that), but also enjoyed golf, running, skiing, and travel. Bob was married in ’83 (a highlight of the last four years) and is most appreciative of the support of his wife and family in making it through! CATHERINE ANNE DAUM Internal Medicine North Carolina Memorial Chapel Hill, NC Cathy graduated from Davidson College. Enjoying traveling, she worked as a headmistress in Kenya, East Africa. Do you remember Dr. Gadjusek (the “Kuru” man from second year)? Well, Cathy worked with this gentleman. She claims she would not have made it through without ice cream and good friends. 100 JAMES ALLEN DICKE Internal Medicine University of Medicine Baltimore, MD Jim is a graduate of University of Maryland at Baltimore County. When not studying, he enjoys sleeping. Jeff’s fabulous fables at Mercy Hospital highlighted Jim’s medicine experiences. However, his three months of surgery were less than memorable. He would have never made it through without the support of his friends. DONNA LYNN DOW Internal Medicine Union Memorial Hospital Baltimore, MD Donna was a natural sciences major at Johns Hopkins before she got to medical school. Once here, camping, basket weaving, and baking were pastimes that helped her get away from it all. When asked what she would most like to forget about these years, it was a toss-up between her surgery rotation and “taking exams across from Bob Hoofnagle.’’ We know (those of us who worked with her on the yearbook) that she will most remember spending weeks trekking around campus getting faculty photos. Donna is looking forward to a medicine residency, especially if she doesn’t have to give up aerobics class. ALEXANDER WALTER DROMERICK, JR. Research Johns Hopkins Baltimore, MD Alex joined our class junior year. In his spare time, he enjoys playing clarinet and listening to Mozart. He is happily married to Sara Fisher, a medical resi- dent, without whose support he would have never made it through. Alex plans to do research at Johns Hopkins on multiple sclerosis next year. 101 DAVID L. DGNNIGAN Psychiatry University of Maryland Baltimore, MD David plans a career in psychiatry (very much in line with his undergraduate major of philosophy at College Park). Most of David’s time when he wasn’t studying was spent with his family, Angie, a neurology resident, and daughter Maria. Word has it that his favorite pastime was taking Maria to feed the ducks. AMR YEHIA EISSA General Surgery University of California Affiliate Irvine, CA Amr received a BA from Johns Hopkins University and a MHS from Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health before joining our class. CHARLES WILLIAM EMALA Anesthesiology Johns Hopkins Baltimore, MD Chas received a Microbiology degree from College Park. Between undergraduate and medical school, he earned a Master’s degree in Microbiology from College Park. When not studying, he works on home renovation. The best part of the last four years for him was forming many new close friendships. Taking exams with Bob Hoofnagle’s orange is his most memorable moment. Like many others, the VA was an experience he’d truly like to forget. He wouldn’t have made it through without Mary. “Ether screen = blood brain barrier’’ 102 STEPHEN MICHAEL FANTO Anesthesiology Nassau County Medical Center East Meadow, NY Steve was one of those who thought medical school was so much fun, real- ly” thanks to all his friends, especially Kelly and the great times at the American Cafe and 8 by 10’s after the exams. Steve is trying to forget the numerous sunny weekends he spent in the Law Library studying for yet another Monday morning exam. Steve tells us when he wasn t studying, he was trying to find a great excuse for not studying (an easy task). Steve s hob- bies include cooking, golf, and Frisbees. Prior to the great time he has had the last four years, Steve was an undergraduate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. IRA LOUIS FEDDER Orthopedics University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Ira received his Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Maryland, did a clinical pharmacology fellowship at Jefferson, and plied his trade at the Boston VA and Northeastern University before coming back to the U of M. Ira continued to work as a pharmacist during med school. When he wasn’t doing that, he spent his spare time gardening, skiing, scuba diving, playing racquet- ball, ' and experimenting with gourmet cooking. Ira will never forget one par- ticular month in his Senior year, when the Orthopedics Department presented him with a position offer, and his wife Jean presented him with baby Rebecca. JUDITH NEMARICH FEICK Pediatrics Medical Center of Delaware Newark, DE A lover of the great outdoors, Judy enjoys running, camping and hiking. Her great experiences in Peds helped her decide on this field. However, she truly would not mind forgetting her Surgery rotation. She credits family, friends and especially her husband with providing enough sanity to survive these four years. ‘‘The difference is worth the distance. 103 DAVID ALAN FELTON General Surgery West Virginia University Hospital Morgantown, WV Dave quickly established himself as one of our class’s premier comedians. No one will forget how he stole the show in the Freshman Follies as the lead in “Tootsie” (nice legs, Dave). The low point of Dave’s med school experience was the disappearance from his car of his entire set of histology slides, which had to be replaced at $10 per slide. The highlight, his proudest accomplish- ment, was his marriage to Sarah. “We are your friends here at the University of Maryland” — Lloyd Guth 1982 LISA ANN FILLMORE Psychiatry University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Born at University of Maryland Hospital, Lisa returned here for her graduate medical education. Prior to her return, she earned a BS in Psychology from College Park. After College Park, she attended University of Maryland School of Law receiving her law degree. An AV tech and notetaker through the first two years, she helped us make it through those tough years. BARBARA BCJRCH FLEMING Internal Medicine Francis Scott Key Medical Center Baltimore, MD Barbara came to medical school after completing a Ph.D. in nutritional biochemistry at Cornell and a fellowship at NIH. During medical school, she was involved in a variety of activities ranging from chairing community health fairs to developing and directing minimester electives in geriatrics and in sports medicine. Barbara and her husband Jim enjoy biking, gardening, rais- ing dogs (Rex and Fred) and African violets. The best memories of these last four years are the people — “dedicated faculty, interesting patients, great friends, and a terrific husband whose support through the last four years was invaluable.” 104 BRIAN KENNY FLOWERS General Surgery University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Brian graduated from G.M.B.C. earning a degree in Biochemistry in 1980. Before entering medical school, he worked as a research technician in clinical immunology. During medical school, he has been an active force in the American Medical Students Association and in directing many follies shows. When not involved in academics, he enjoys “attempting to sail.” He plans to go into ENT after completing a year of Surgery. PATRICK ALEX FLYNN Pediatrics New Hork Hospital New York, NY An alumnus of Villanova University, Pat is known for his unique humor in the face of medical school. He made the ultimate sacrifice for medicine — study- ing pathology instead of celebrating the Oriole’s 1983 World Championship. August 26, 1984, is a special day for Pat — it was not only the date of his god- son’s birth, but also a Bruce Springsteen concert and a holiday from surgery. He attributes his survival to Mom, Dad, Mary Nell, Jeff, RAK, friends, Spring- steen and Rollie and the Wildcats. “We learn more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school” — Bruce Springsteen LESLIE BRYAN FORGOSH Internal Medicine Eastern Virginia Medical School Norfolk, VA A College Park graduate with a BS in Zoology, Les enjoys playing tennis, racquetball and socializing. Thanks to Les we had Senior Follies. He took on the organization of Senior Follies with only about a month to prepare. His most memorable moment was at the end of Freshman year when the Neuro practical finally ended. However, his experience with the pelvic model in Ob Gyn is best forgotten. He attributes his survival of these past four years to the support of his family. 105 SCOTT WILLIAM FOSKO Internal Medicine University of Virginia Charlottesville, VA An University of Notre Dame graduate with a BS in Microbiology, Scott helped many of us through the first two years with his note sets. When not grinding out note sets, he found time to hit the basketball courts, cook, play guitar, eat, and stockpile a large number of medical journals. However, he did not enjoy getting up for surgery rounds and sharing various pediatric illnesses with the pedies. September 1, 1985, was the date of his most memorable mo- ment — his marriage to Patty Willie. He wouldn’t have gotten through without his tiny typist (AKA Patty) typing all those note sets, chocolate chip cookies during finals, all his past good roommates — Pat “How I loved those Hoyas” Flynn, Seth “Let me know when you’re through with the phone” Rosen and Tim “1 can make a mean apple pie” Nichols. CHRISTOPHER DAVID FOX Orthopedics Louisiana State University Affiliate New Orleans, LA Chris started out as a biochemical engineer from MIT and is headed toward a career in orthopedics. Chris enjoys some interesting hobbies — ranging from being a pilot to being a competition class waterskier. He remembers his or- thopedic rotation in shock-trauma as the best part of the last four years. His most anxious moment came when he had a patient with a diagnosis he’d never heard of (understandably then, one of his favorite quotes is “I’d like to have heard of a disease at least once before I treat it”). RICHARD PHILIP FRANKLIN General Surgery Union Memorial Baltimore, MD Richard came to us from George Washington University. An avid student, he was elected to AOA, presented at Student Research Day and has a publication pending from his research. While he would like to forget sophomore year, he recalls Dr. Burns (Respiratory Physio) looking at a list of numbers that did not add up for five minutes then stating “will you just get to the point” with a smile. His favorite pastimes were sitting in the student lounge during basic science years and playing music in the Follies. He married Joyce during school. He attributes his survival to his sense of humor so he could laugh at the abuse. 106 KEVIN EUGENE FRIDIE General Surgery Martin Luther King Los Angeles, CA Kevin received a BA from University of Maryland at College Park before join- ing our class. KEITH EUGENE FRIEND Internal Medicine Mercy Hospital Baltimore, MD Keith attended George Washington University for undergraduate education receiving a BS in Zoology. One of his best memories during medical school was getting a suntan with Craig F. at lunch time during his peds rotation. On the other hand, he will not miss having to get up to do surgery at 4 a.m.! “The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.” — Wiliam James CRAIG BRIAN FROEDE Internal Medicine Eastern Virginia Medical School Norfolk, VA Craig received his BS in Microbiology from College Park before joining the class of 1986. An avid athlete, his pastimes include weightlifting, basketball, softball and volleyball as well as just plain lying around the beach. Craig’s most memorable moments of the last four years were his marriage and graduation. Least memorable for him was the entire sophomore year. He is grateful to God and Kathy for seeing him through. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” — Proverbs 3:5 107 STEPHEN WAYNE GEORGE Medicine Pediatrics Geisinger Medical Center Danville, PA A Howard County native, Steve fulfilled a lifelong ambition to become a physi- cian, the only member of his large family to do so. After earning a BA in Molecular Biology at the University of Maryland — Baltimore County, Steve worked three years at Johns Hopkins as a cardiopulmonary technician. He continued this work during medical school and also tutored. His best memories are shared with Keith, Craig, Marilyn, Bryan, Boris, Grace and Karen. In one two week period Senior Year, he matched, married, honey- mooned in the Mexican Riviera, took NBME II and bought a house. His worst memories are too numerous to count but feels he “would have made it no matter what!” RAPHAEL Y. GERSHON General Surgery University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Raf is one of the many University of Maryland at College Park graduates who entered our class. When not studying Surgery, Raf has been seen shooting the hoops at the UMAB gym. ZEV TSEVI GERSHON Special Studies Before entering medical school, Zev received a degree in Math from Universi- ty of Maryland at College Park. 108 1 DAVID LARRY GOLD Orthopedics University of Maryland Hospital Baltimore, MD Dave, an alumnus of College Park, joined us after receiving his B.S. in Zoology in 1982. An avid golfer, he considers breaking 100 at Pine Ridge as one of his greatest accomplishments. We should also note that becoming a member of Junior AOA belongs on the same list. Dave will never forget the food at the Penn Restaurant, but he is trying. PAM ELIZABETH WILLIAMS GOOSE Radiology Georgetown Hospital Washington, D.C. A graduate of the University of Kentucky with a B.S. in Nursing, she com- pleted her pre-med education at Georgetown. On many occasions, she escaped speeding tickets while enroute between Washington and Baltimore. Dining out, working out and sleeping were luxuries she enjoyed. Her husband, Stephen, and she became proud parents of James Hewett, an 8 lb. V 2 oz. baby boy during Junior year. She would not have made it through without a sense of humor and the love and support of her most significant other. STCJART JAY GORDON Orthopedics West Virginia University Hospital Morgantown, WV Stu hails from the College of William and Mary, where he received a B.S. in Biology. His most outstanding memory was assisting in a reduction of gastroschisis while on Peds Surgery. However, this did not sway him from deciding on a career in Orthopedics. Other than setting casts, his favorite pastime is running. His marriage to Susan will remain his proudest ac- complishment during medical school. “No pain, no gain.” 109 MICHAEL LOUIS GOSEY Primary Care University of California — Irvine Orange, CA Mike came to us from College Park where he was an Animal Science major. “Gumby” will never forget passing Pharm and all that late night cramming. When not cramming, he spends his time shooting hoops. He would most like to forget Sophomore year’s finals week and feels his most significant ac- complishment these past four years is graduating. “What’s going on?’’ ALBERT SYDNEY HAMMOND, III Internal Medicine Portsmouth Naval Hospital Portsmouth, VA Albert attended Mount St. Joseph High School and Virginia Wesleyan College for undergraduate education. When away from the medical school grounds, he enjoys gardening, restoring old furniture, grilling and drinking beer on his back porch. His most memorable moment during medical school was January 14, 1984 — the day of his marriage to Janice. SANGWOON HAN Psychiatry University of Maryland Hospital Baltimore, MD Sangwoon attended Eleanor Roosevelt Senior High and received B.S. in Zoology at College Park. Her most memorable moments at GMAB are the first and the last days of medical school. Off campus, Sangwoon’s favorite times are those spent with her husband, Eric. “All man had was time, all that stood between him and the death he feared and abhorred was time, yet he spent half of it inventing ways of getting the other half past.” — William Faulkner, Intruder in the Dust 110 KATHARINE SANTOS HARRISON Internal Medicine University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Katharine was a chemistry major at Goucher and also did some clinical research at Johns Hopkins. She reports that medical school was “a great ex- perience; always wanted to do it and it was just as I expected!” The support of her family and friends has been an important part of the last four years. ‘‘Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.” — Andregide Picture Not Available BRIAN JOSEPH HASSLINGER Otolaryngology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Brian was a Biology major at the University of Delaware prior to medical school days. He fills his free time with gardening (raising orchids, among other things), cycling, swimming, and running. While Brian has lots of good memories of his medical school days, one of the highlights was his wedding to Claire in October of 1985. CRAIG DONALD HOCHSTEIN Internal Medicine Geisinger Medical Center Danville, PA Craig earned a degree at the University of Maryland at College Park prior to joining our class. These past four years seem to be blurred to Craig. He can’t remember his most memorable moment and has forgotten his most forget- table experience. ill PAUL ERICK HOGSTEN Psychiatry University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Paul received a Biology degree from Western Maryland College. His wife, April, graduated from law school in 1985, so Paul will never be in need of legal advice. When not studying, he enjoys playing volleyball (member of in- tramural team), racquetball, and tennis. He co-authored a paper published in Journal of Biological Chemistry. The pungent odor of formaldehyde filling his nostrils in Anatomy is something he would like to forget. Religion is an impor- tant factor in Paul’s life. He attends Seventh Baptist Church and occasionally acts as a leader of Evening Worship. He says he would not have made it through without “casting my anxieties on the Lord and without the support of my wife.” ROBERT FRANKLIN HOOFNAGLE, JR. Urology West Virginia University Hospital Morgantown, WV Bob earned a degree from CIMBC in Psychology and Health Science and Policy. Between college and medical school he worked at the Ocean City Police Department. He participated in Student Government acting as Student Council President and Treasurer. Many will remember his stirring rendition of Dr. Hall-Craggs in Freshman Follies. When not hitting the books or drawing blood (blood drawing team pro), he enjoys waxing his car and playing tennis. While he would like to forget the Basic Science years, Urology Match Day and Graduation will always be special. He would not have made it through without good family and friends. “Don’t open your bone boxes on the bus!” ROBERT MAURICE HOWSE, JR. Family Practice Lancaster General Hospital Lancaster, PA Robert graduated from Drexel University with a Chemistry B.S. degree. He did co-op work with Smith Kline Corp. and McNeil Pharmaceutical.

When not studying, he enjoys gardening, camping, hiking and traveling. 112 JOSEPH JUE-TENG HSU Internal Medicine University of Texas SW Affiliate Dallas, TX Joe received a BA from Johns Hopkins before medical school. ABBY IRENE HUANG Internal Medicine Temple University Philadelphia, PA A resident of Potomac, Maryland, Abby moved to Ithaca, New York, to attend Cornell University. After receiving a B.A. degree in Biology she became a member of our class. When not attending classes or doing scut in the hospital, Abb y enjoys escaping to the beach. KELLY ANNE HUNTER Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Nassau County Medical Center East Meadow, NY Before joining us, Kelly put in four years at CJMBC, where she received a BA in Biology. In medical school, she served as the class treasurer for all four years. As a notetaker, she was known for her superbly organized notesets. Kelly will never forget those Monday night birthday celebrations at the 8x10, and escaping to the beach with friends. However, she hopes she will forget Sophomore Pharmacology. Kelly and classmate Steve Fanto are to be mar- ried May 31, 1986. “Happiness is good. The place to be happy is here. The time to be happy is now. The way to be happy is to make others happy.’’ — Unknown 113 MICHAEL THOMAS JAKLITSCH General Surgery University of Alabama Medical Center Birmingham, AL Mike came to medical school after receiving a B.S. degree in Chemistry at Tulane. Once here, he had a lot of memorable moments. Among them were, “spraying blood over the walls of the newly opened 13th floor suite’’ and “my patient coding on the CT scan table during Sophomore year.’’ His hobbies in- clude puzzles and games. He tells us that he would not have made it through without “a sarcastic sense of humor.” All of this may explain his favorite quote, “Sack.” Then again, maybe not. C3 ELZBIETA ANNA JANCZUR Anesthesiology George Washington Washington, DC Ella transferred to CIMAB in her Junior year from the Medical Academy of Gdansk Poland. She is a graduate of the Medical Academy of Gdansk Poland where she earned a degree in Biology. When not poring over the books, she enjoys jogging and hitchhiking. SPENCER FRY JOHNSON Psychiatry St. Elizabeth Hospital Washington, DC Spencer graduated from Johns Hopkins before coming to medical school. You will remember Spencer from his cheerful face as the clerk in the Learning Resources Center. He also tutored biostatistics and was a notetaker. He has worked as a research consultant for the Department of Opthalmology. He hopes to work in psychiatric and general edpidemiology. 114 WALLACE ROBERT JOHNSON, JR. Internal Medicine Howard University Hospital Washington, DC Wallace’s undergraduate days were spent as a Biology major at Bucknell University. He then worked as a research technician at Johns Hopkins before medical school. Wallace tells us that the best part of these years was his subinternship at the VA. He would just as soon forget Monday exams during Sophomore year. His interests are wide — ranging from Kung-fu to music. Getting through these last four years has been easier thanks to the support of his parents and the people in the OSA. “Don’t let your search for tomorrow make you lose sight of today.’’ SUDHIR DANIEL JOSHUA Internal Medicine York Hospital York, PA A graduate of College Park with a B.S. in Chemistry, Sudhir feels religion is an important part of his life. He found time to participate in the UMAB Christian Fellowship, Medical Student Christian Fellowship and attended and helped organize Evening Worship Service at Seventh Baptist Church. Eventually, he hopes to work in a community practice, contribute time to a free health clinic and work in overseas medical missions. EDWARD FRANCIS JUSKELIS Family Practice York Hospital York, PA Before going to medical school Ed received a BA from University of Maryland at Baltimore County. 115 KAREN MARIE KABAT Anesthesiology Yale-New Haven Medical Center New Haven, CT After earning a BS in biochemistry from SONY — Binghamton, Karen worked a year and then began graduate school at UMAB.

She will never forget the many friendships formed during these four years. “How long the road is. But, for all the time the journey has already taken, how you have needed every second of it in order to learn what the road passes by.’’ — Dag Hammarskjold BASMA KANAAN Obstetrics Gynecology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Originally a native of Lebanon, Basma came to the United States to earn her Biology degree from GMBC. Unknown to most of the class, she is an excellent belly dancer who also teaches this art. In the spring of 1986, Basma married Hatem, a local neurosurgeon. i. PHILLIP H. KEISER Internal Medicine Francis Scott Key Medical Center Baltimore, MD Phil started out as a chemistry major at Morgan State and then worked at the Baltimore Cancer Research Center before coming to medical school. When he wasn’t studying, Phil spent his time skiing, working on his car, and guitar playing (a talent much appreciated by the class during all the Follies). First on Phil’s list of priorities came his family, wife Unsil (a dentist), and their son Ronald. 116 RUTH ANNE KELLY Internal Medicine New York Hospital New York, NY A native of Elkton, Maryland, Ruth Anne attended Georgetown University. After receiving her BS in Chemistry, she became a member of our class. She attributes the successful completion of medical school to her parents, family, friends, Erin, Maggi, Patrick and the credit plan at Ma and Pa’s bookstore. THOMAS E. KELLY, III General Surgery University Hospital — Mississippi Jackson, MS Tom joined our class after receiving a BS in Biology from Dickenson College. Like many of us, he would truly like to forget the Freshman biochemistry course. When not hitting the books, Tom relaxes by jogging. His marriage to Susan, a nurse, was the highlight of his medical school years. THOMAS JOSEPH KELLY Internal Medicine Greater Baltimore Medical Center Baltimore, MD Tom received a BA from Holy Cross University before medical school. 117 FRANCIS KIELISZEK Internal Medicine Strong Memorial Hospital Rochester, NY Frank received a Physics B.A. from Yale and a B.S. from the Health Associated Program at Hopkins and then spent five years as a Physician’s Assistant before medical school. An important part of Frank’s life is his fami- ly, wife Meg, and their sons James and Patrick. Frank tells us that his favorite pastime during medical school was looking for his car in the Lexington Garage. His most memorable moment was being asked the significance of the Warthin-Finkeldey cell! Those of us who did clinical rotations with Frank grealy appreciated his knowledge and his willingness to share it and his humility. “We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be.” — Kurt Vonnegut JOSEPH JtiYONG KIM Internal Medicine Thomas Jefferson University Philadelphia, PA Joe was asked for information for this yearbook entry. He said la ter . . . Later . . . Later ... Too late Joe. LEE ALLAN KLEIMAN Otolaryngology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD We asked Lee to tell us a little about himself and he did! When it comes to hobbies, Lee lists his as “sex, drugs, and rock and roll.” When asked about the high points of the last fours, he lists “good sex, good drugs, and good rock and roll.” The low point he considers “bad sex, bad drugs, and bad rock and roll.” The future, he feels, holds for him “great sex, great drugs, and great rock and roll.” We feel compelled to add that Lee is actually a very nice guy who also enjoys baseball and skiing. His favorite quote (which can be found in the sidewalk by the Bressler Building) is “Life’s a bitch and then you die.” 118 SHELLEY KLEIN TRAZKOVICH Psychiatry University of Maryland Baltimore, MD After completing a BS in Psychology at Johns Hopkins, Shelley entered medical school. When not concentrating on academics, her favorite pastime is “exploring altered states of consciousness.” Her most memorable moment was the “Sophomore Horror Picture Show.” She says she would not have made it through without her friends. JAN MARIE KOPPELMAN Pediatrics Duke University Durham, NC Jan graduated from Johns Hopkins earning a B.A. in Natural Sciences Behavioral Biology. She started medical school at University of Pittsburgh. After realizing the opportunities in Maryland, she transferred to our class in junior year. When not working up a patient or hitting the books, she enjoys traveling and sailing. ELIZABETH FRANCES KOSNIK General Surgery NYU Medical Center New York, NY Betsy attended Loyola College before joining our class. She s erved as class secretary during the first two years. “A chirurgien should have three dyvers properties in his person. That is to saie, a harte as the harte of a lyon, his eyes like the eyes of a hawke, and his handes the handes of a woman.” — John Halle (1529-1568) 119 THERESA RETCJE KRAMER Ophthamology Emory University Atlanta, GA After receiving a B.S. in zoology from College Park, Theresa traveled to Africa (Liberia) where she did research. She then began medical school at George Washington University. She joined us at the University of Maryland junior year. When not cramming for an exam or working up an admission, she en- joys traveling, aerobics, sewing, and dressmaking. She tells us that she would never have made it through without the support of her family. DENNIS KURGANSKY Internal Medicine Mercy Hospital Baltimore, MD Dennis earned a BS in Biochemistry from College Park and worked as a research technician at Hopkins oncology division before joining our class. Notably, he served as our class president from sophomore year to senior year. His physical diagnosis course with Dr. Theodore Woodward will always be a special memory to Dennis. Another special event occurred during these four years — his marriage to Barbara on December 26, 1982. In his spare time, Dennis enjoys playing golf, fishing, shopping for antiques and tending to his pets (2 dogs and 2 cats). He wouldn’t have made it through without the sup- port of his wife, Barbara. BORIS WILLIAM KUVSHINOFF, II General Surgery University of Cincinnati Cincinnati, OH Boris did his undergraduate work in chemistry at the Universities of Delaware and Maryland. Boris, like so many of us, would like to forget taking National Board Exams and the basic science years. On the other hand, his electives at Baylor and the University of Illinois and rotations at the VA will always be fond memories. Boris tells us that perseverance and caffeinated beverages were two essentials during these last four years. 120 KAREN ANNE LAVOIE Internal Medicine Medical College of Virginia Richmond, VA A graduate of Virginia Tech with a B.S. in biochemistry, Karen is one of the more athletic of our group. An avid cyclist who enjoys aerobics and swimm- ing, she also plays violin. Many of us will remember Karen as the head on the desk sleeping through the Basic Science lectures with pen poised over her notes. She enjoyed the clinical rotations, especially surgery (with “Buddy” and Dave Dunnigan), psychiatry (with Steve), and GI medicine. She tells us she would just as soon not remember junior medicine at the VA, her first blood drawing attempts and biostatistics. EGN-KYO LEE Neurology Duke University Durham, NC Grace received a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Maryland at College Park. Her best memories of these four years include listening to Mike Benitez’s lightening guitar playing, being introduced to Robert Howse’s latest piano composition, and spending time with Karen Lavoie, Maria Albuquerque, and Nadine Semer. In addition, she enjoys playing piano, reading, and listen- ing to music. One of the highlights of medical school for Grace was the clinical rotation she did in London the summer before senior year. DANIEL GLYNDWR LEWIS Internal Medicine University of California — Davis Martinez, CA Dan Lewis spent his undergraduate years as a chemical engineering major at Cornell University before coming to medical school. The best part of the four years came when Dan discovered the excitement of clinical medicine. The worst memories are associated with Monday exams. Dan has made it through with the support of his friends and by spending time on hobbies such as music, sports, and reading that let him get away from it all. Dan’s future holds, at some point, time for him to practice medicine in the Third World Countries. 121 ANNE LING LI Psychiatry Massachusetts General Hospital Boston, MA A graduate of Indiana University with a BS in Music, Anne is one of our more artistic classmates. Her favorite pastimes include maintaining her pianistic skills (classical piano) and studying for Surgery in the sun “but really achiev- ing a vegetable-like state.” She enjoyed the opportunity to make new friends, but her most memorable moment was “acknowledging my professional destiny.” She’d like to forget how seriously she took pharmacology and how seldom she touched the keyboard. She wouldn’t have made it through without “moments of lucidity in which I perceived myself as an individual rather than a medical student.” TERESA H. LIAO General Surgery Baylor University Dallas, TX Before entering medical school, Teresa earned a BS from National Taiwan University, a MS from Iowa State University and a PhD from University of Maryland at College Park in biochemistry. JOSEPH GREGORY LIBERTO Psychiatry University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Before entering medical school, Joe graduated from Loyola College. In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf (lots of it!) and softball. He enjoyed his Psych rotation so much he decided to go into the field. His most memorable moment occurred senior year on April 26 — his marriage to Karen. “So it goes” 122 MICHAEL SANFORD LIFSON Obstetrics Gynecology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Mike, a graduate of College Park, has the distinction of being our class Vice President all four years. As such, he organized various memorable events from the freshman medical instruments sale to senior week. He also lent his singing and acting talents to the Follies, where his portrayal of Dr. Edelman remains unsurpassed. He is grateful to his family, friends, and particularly his wife Holly for their love and support. “You don’t have to go looking for love when it is where you come from.’’ — Werner Erhard GEORGE HARRIS LINDBECK Internal Medicine University of Virginia Charlottesville, VA One of the lovers of the great outdoors, George enjoys camping, hiking and mountain climbing (brave soul) when not studying. Many of us remember George’s various roles in Follies with a chuckle. He was one of the morning blood drawing team pros who would gladly share his expertise. MARION PAUL LOMONICO Pediatrics University of Maryland Baltimore, MD A Loyola College graduate with a B.S. in Biology, Paul worked doing research which resulted in publications prior to becoming a medical student. When not studying, Paul follows the Orioles, plays volleyball, and works on the Mustang. He married Cindy on June 12, 1983 — his most memorable moment in the last four years. Other happy memories include the H.D.M.E. retreat, finally finishing Sophomore year and Junior Medicine at the V.A. He would not have made it through without the support of his wife, family, and friends. “One of man’s most important jobs in life is to see that the straight path does not remain narrow.” 123 RONALD LYNCH Family Practice Florida Hospital Orlando, FL Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Ron earned a B.S. from Oakwood College in Hunts- ville, Alabama. In addition, he received a M.S. from Howard University. He would like to thank his family, especially Linda, his wife, for their nurturing love, support and tolerance. He’s also thankful for the friendships developed with classmates. “I expect to pass this way but once. Any good that I can do or any kindness 1 can show to my fellow human being, let me do it now. I will not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” Stephen Grellet GILES HARRISON MANLEY Obstetrics Gynecology Greater Baltimore Medical Center Baltimore, MD Born in London, England, Giles received his B.S. in Biology from Towson State University. His fondest memories of the past four years include enjoying the nightlife at P.J.’s, Campus Inn, and Synapse. Many of us remember his performances in the Follies. Making new friends, passing Pharmacology, lunching at Lexington Market, and the clinical years are good memories for him. Giles requested this special mention: ‘‘To my best friend and sister who died during my second year but will never be forgotten.” MARSH R. McEACHRANE Internal Medicine Royal Victoria Hospital Canada Before joining us, Marsh received his undergraduate degree in Biology from McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. When not studying, he enjoys play- ing soccer, racquetball, and traveling. He would like to forget the basic science years, especially Neuroscience. He attributes his success to hard work. ‘‘Don’t be afraid to say that you’re wrong, but don’t be wrong all the time.” Theodore E. Woodward, M.D. 124 JEFFREY ROBERT McLAUGHLIN Orthopedics Johns Hopkins Hospital Baltimore, MD A graduate of the University of North Carolina, Jeff received a BA in chemistry before entering our class. In his free time, he enjoys hunting, fishing and scuba diving. His most memorable moment and the time he would really like to forget are the same — Freshman year. Was he really there or did he do it by correspondence? Did you see him Freshman year? RAYMOND EDWARD MILLER Internal Medicine Case Western Reserve University Cleveland, OH Ray will be a part of the Maryland contingent in Medicine at Case Western Reserve in July. His path to medical school started at Cedarville College in Ohio with a major in Chemistry. After simply wanting to be a doctor, he was surprised to discover there were “hundreds of kinds of doctors’’ (more deci- sions!). Among this and other trials of the last four years (discovering the sheer volume of material to be committed to memory was another “sur- prise”), his family, friends, and “non-medical roommates” wer e a real source of support. Hobbies, such as tennis, camping, and studying theology are things he looks forward to having time for again! SAMUEL BENNETT MILLER Neurology Thomas Jefferson Philadelphia, PA Sam, a Zoology major at College Park before starting medical school, says that the elective he did in London was certainly the best part of the last four years. His most memorable moment was: “My first rectal exam — thanks for volunteering, Les.” Sam would like to thank all the great partners who made 3rd and 4th years really enjoyable. Sam also firmly believes that he wouldn’t have made it through without the “the fear of God ... or was it Dr. Oster-Granite?” 125 SCOTT ALAN MILSTEEN Obstetrics Gynecology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Scott, a Zoology major at College Park, tells us that he used to have lots of hobbies from running to photography (but none lately). Scott credits his fami- ly, wife Ita and son David, for helping him through the last four years. Upon reflecting, Scott says “It’s funny to think that an experience so long and demanding, so absorbing and yet frustrating, with so many contradictions and requirements for sacrifice, and so few actual day-to-day rewards will probably be remembered by most of us as the most significant period of our lives. “It’s funny how many good reasons there are to be sorry that it’s over.” VALERIE LYNN MOORE General Surgery University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Valerie joined our class after completing a chemistry degree at Washington College. When not studying Surgery texts, she enjoys horseback riding, danc- ing, and cooking. One of her most notable accomplishments during school was the successful completion of a parachute jump from a plane in flight and being able to walk away. GREGORY KEITH MORROW Obstetrics Gynecology Keesler AFB Biloxi, MS Greg joined the Class of 1986 after receiving a BA in Biology at GMBC. He will be fondly remembered as the MC of the Freshman Follies and the host of It’s Academic Jeopardy in the Sophomore Follies. An accident waiting to happen, Greg sustained two injuries in 10 minutes the first day of Anatomy lab, twisted his ankle at the Sophomore end of the year party, and separated his shoulder demonstrating how not to dive. “You want a CAT scan, Gregory, my boy? Is God good? Then you don’t need a CAT scan, you hyena!” T. Woodward, M.D. 126 DENISE LYNN MURRAY Obstetrics Gynecology George Washington University Washington, DC Dede holds a BS in Microbiology from College Park, and in spite of that, is a normal human being. In her efforts to avoid being a grind, she traveled to New Mexico and Europe, skied, basked in the sun, and generally enjoyed the bon vie. Her favorite activity during med school was hot tubbing. Family, friends, and post-exam Liver Rounds at the Campus Inn made the last four years bearable. DAVID ROY MUSSELMAN Internal Medicine North Carolina Memorial Chapel Hill, NC David earned a Chemistry degree from Gettysburg College before joining us. Dave enjoys tennis and golf whenever he can squeeze them into his schedule. He married Inga at the end of Sophomore year — his most memorable mo- ment of these four years. CHARLES EDWARD NEAGLE, III Orthopedics Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania Philadelphia, PA After earning a degree in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University, Chuck entered medical school. When not burning the midnight oil studying, he enjoys composing music and playing the guitar. Senior electives, especial- ly those in orthopedics, were the best parts for Chuck. He’ll always remember Dr. O’s abrupt removal of Mr. F’s foley, and giving grand rounds at GSH. On the other hand, Behavioral and Social Sciences and the “friendly” U of M clerks are memories best forgot. He wouldn’t have made it through without the Teflon Principle — crap beads up and rolls off. “If you hear hoofbeats on Greene Street — don ' t look for zebras” 127 CAROLA JANE NESBITT Internal Medicine Mercy Hospital Baltimore, MD Carols attended Virginia Tech, leaving with a BS in Biology. She plans to go into a general medicine practice after finishing her residency. Her husband, Steve, is a bank personnel manager (not in medicine, thank God, according to Carola). Hopefully, she’ll have some time to keep in touch with everyone, learn to play golf (Wednesday afternoons), and continue catamaran sailing. GERSHON C. NEY Internal Medicine Brookdale Hospital Center New York, NY Gershon graduated magna cum laude from Yeshiva University with a major in Pre-Health Sciences and a minor in Biology. He will never forget doing his own surgical case at the VA, but would like to forget falling asleep on Dr. Wood- ward. Gershon lists as his accomplishments receiving Honors in Junior Microbiology and reading the collected works of John Le Carre. He is grateful for the support of his mother and little sister. “Anticipation is making me late ...” — Carly Simon JOSEPH ANTHONY NINER Obstetrics Gynecology York Hospital York, PA Joe received a BS from University of Maryland at College Park before medical school. 128 PETER NICHOLAS NOVALIS Psychiatry St. Elizabeth Hospital Washington, DC Pete received a BA from Columbia University and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Johns Hopkins; he later taught philosophy before deciding that med school was the way to go. During med school, Pete researched computerized decision-making systems in medicine; when not doing that, he got away from it all by hiking. Pete has a son, Daniel, and a wife, Carol, without whose sup- port he wouldn’t have made it through. DAVID WILLIAM OLDACH Internal Medicine Massachusetts General Hospital Boston, MA Dave, a biology major from College Park, is a member of AOA and served as its president during his Senior year. He also served as a USGA Senator during his preclinical years. An avid sailor, Dave once sailed the coast of Greenland in a square rigger. He also enjoys hiking and climbing. Meeting Toby was the most memorable event of Dave’s med school days, so memorable that they got married the week after graduation. Dave says that trying to keep Toby awake through an entire pharm lecture (for which he was a frequent notetaker) was one of his greatest challenges. He now moves on to challenge New England. JOAN ORDMAN Internal Medicine Montefiore Hospital Pittsburgh, PA After receiving her BS in Microbiology from College Park, Joan worked as a laboratory technician in neuroanatomy and monoclonal antibodies. In addi- tion, she took graduate business courses and earned her real estate license. In her spare time, she’s traveled across the United States, Jamaica and Europe. During the first two years, she participated in the CAPP program. She also en- joys playing volleyball and doing ceramics. 129 DONNA LYNN PARKER PHILLIPS Internal Medicine Mercy Hospital Baltimore, MD Donna came to medical school after obtaining an undergraduate degree at McGill University in Montreal with a major in physiology. After the last four years, she leaves us with this thought “I send eternal hugs and kisses to the many wild and wonderful friends who kept me in touch with reality during this four year psychosis. We never let our schooling interfere with our education.” MICHAEL HUGH PARKER General Surgery St. Agnes Hospital Baltimore, MD Michael attended Hopkins as an undergraduate, then received a MS in elec- trical engineering from the University of Maryland before joining the Class of 1986. His proudest accomplishment during med school was becoming a cer- tified Scuba diver, which he did during his Medicine clerkship. He shares his life with his wife Verilette, son Hugh, and infant daughter Bonnie. STEPHAN PAVLOS Internal Medicine Case Western Reserve University Cleveland, OH Stephan hails from the Johns Hopkins University, where he picked up a BES in biomedical engineering. An accomplished musician, Stephan found time to play the piano in the ‘‘Sentimental Journey” Dance Band when he wasn’t trading insults with Dave Felton. Those cram sessions with Dave and Greg were what got him through Sophomore year. ‘‘Oh well, there’s always diesel mechanics!” 130 MARK STEVEN PERLSWEIG Psychiatry Veterans Administration Hospital Sepulveda, CA Mark is very knowledgeable about music and is especially interested in the punk rock movement. Unknown to many of us, he has worked as a disc jockey at Radio Station WJHU during his preclinical years. Mark was also a participant in the CAPP program. The highlight of Mark’s Senior year was his marriage to Randi. WILLIAM JOSEPH PHELAN Family Practice Wheeling Hospital Wheeling, WV An alumnus of Towson State University, Bill earned a BS in Biology before medical school. The most memorable part of these past four years has been most of the people he has met. However, the other people he met he would like to forget. KATHERINE PLOUGH DUFFY Internal Medicine University Hospital Boston, MA Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Katherine lived most of her life in Bethesda and attended Johns Hopkins. After graduating with a degree in Behavioral Biology, she entered our class. She was surprised to find most of her classmates were genuinely warm and friendly despite the stereotypes. According to her, the most important thing to learn is: Never back down from anything, no matter how bad it smells or how badly they’re pimping you. Her most treasured quote came from Juie Williams to a chief resident in Urology. " You’re bad-tempered today. What’s wrong? Is your turban wound too tight?” 131 SCOTT CRAIG POULTON Internal Medicine Medical College of Virginia Richmond, Va Scott was one of the athletes in the class, enjoying water skiing, softball, golf, and basketball. He tells us the best parts of medical school were getting mar- ried in October of 1985 to Barbara, cold beers at the Campus Inn, and skiing in Vail. Scott spent his undergraduate days at the University of Delaware as a biology major. GREGORY WINSTON PRICE Internal Medicine Greater Baltimore Medical Center Baltimore, MD Greg received a B.S. in pharmacy at UMAB and, not content to leave campus with that, stayed on for his M.D. He put his undergraduate training to good use, working part time as a pharmacist at St. Agnes when he wasn’t studying. His last day as a MS IV was spent as a subintern in medicine at University; the completion of that day remains his most memorable moment. ADIN TYLER PUTNAM, II General Surgery Wilford Hall (JSAF San Antonio, TX After receiving a Biochemistry degree from College Park, Ty entered the ranks of medical student. An avid runner, he trained for marathon running in his Senior year. Traveling, camping, hiking, and skiing are a few of the ac- tivities he enjoys. Notably, during med school he visited Japan, Texas, and California, and skied in Nevada and Utah. Eventually, Ty hopes to practice somewhere in New England. 132 J STEVEN CRAIG RESNICK Transitional Louisiana State University Affiliate Shreveport, LA Before entering medical school, Steve graduated form Emory University. In his spare time he enjoys playing tennis, traveling and basking in the sun and surf. He claims he thoroughly enjoyed medical school. He gives his best regards to “The House” especially AH. He left us this parting note: “May we all meet again.” PAUL D. REZNIKOV Radiology Medical College of Virginia Richmond, VA Paul studied chemistry at Florida Atlantic University, then worked as a nuclear medicine technologist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center before joining our class. It was the latter experience that kindled his interest in radiology. Paul is a member of AOA and an avid sports fan. He would most like to forget those 8 AM anatomy classes. Paul and his wife Susan are looking forward to their move to Richmond. TOBY ANN RITTERHOFF Obstetrics Gynecology Boston City Hospital Boston, MA Toby served as our Student Council representative during Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years. She also found time to put her dance and ch oreography training to good use in the Follies. Toby says she’d never have made it through without “O-dak.” Those of us who actually rolled out of bed for those 8 AM pharm lectures would never have made it through without Toby’s coffee-and-doughnut stand. “We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time.” — T. S. Eliot, Little Gidding 133 ROBERT KENNETH ROBY Internal Medicine Sinai Hospital Baltimore, MD Robert’s best memories of medical school involve his medical subinternship. He stated “it made me, it pushed me to better than I thought I could be.” His worst experiences in medical school concern orthopedic surgery (his own). “If I had my druthers, I druther not do it over and I druther not live in Jersey, neither” DOMINGO ROCHA, JR. Family Practice University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Domingo, a former Physics major, was a member of the work force for several years before deciding to take up medicine. He was first spotted doing needle- point during class; he was later chosen as our lovable Class Mascot. Domingo was also an active member of the Family Practice Club, and a devoted Gar- field fan. He feels his greatest accomplishments during med school are pass- ing pharm and keeping his marriage to Carolyn off the rocks. He would love to forget how many loans he had. Domingo extends his thanks to Julie, Sallie, and Lynnie for helping him survive. SETH DAVID ROSEN Internal Medicine Jackson Memorial Hospital Miami, FL Seth left his home town of Miami to attend Washington University in St. Louis before winding up here in Baltimore. Unable to ignore his love for the sun and surf, he spent his spare time sailing on Brian’s boat. Seth also found time to serve on the Curriculum Committee, and as the unseen but vital technical assistant in the Freshman, Sophomore, and Senior Follies. After July 1, Seth can be found relaxing in the sun and rooting for the Dolphins back home in Miami. “Our questions remain the same, it’s the answers that keep changing.” — Anonymous 134 MITCHELL H. ROTHENBERG Orthopedics University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Mitch, a biology major at Hopkins, also spent some time doing pharmacology research there before medical school. Mitch tells us that anatomy lab was both the best and the worst experience in medical school. His senior or- thopedics rotation was the highlight of the med school experience. Getting through was made easier by the support of his wife (Susan), by time spent listening to good music, and by remembering, as Lewis Thomas said, “Most things get better by morning.” STEVEN MARC ROTTER General Surgery Sinai Hospital Baltimore, MD Another graduate of College Park, Steve received a Zoology degree before joining the medical school ranks. Reflecting on the four years, he thought it was all great but Match Day was a very special day for him. He attributes his survival of this educational experience to a sense of humor. “Don’t let the skin stand between you and the diagnosis” JUDITH LYNN ROWEN Pediatrics University of California Sacramento, CA Originally from Exit 11 off the New Jersey Turnpike, Judy’s most memorable moment came when she and accomplices absconded with some body boxes from the anatomy lab and spent the weekend tobogganing in them. Judy also contributed to Noteservice, the Follies, and the Design of Disease Sym- posium. Unfortunately, Judy’s efforts to get a tan in Baltimore never quite succeeded, so she moved to California for her senior year. Judy and Hans married just before graduation and headed back to California for residencies. 135 JOHN F. RUBIN Internal Medicine Jackson Memorial Hospital Miami, FL John spent his college years in Atlanta, Georgia. At UMAB, he was a member of the yearbook staff. It was John who popped the first cork on the first champagne bottle during the graduation speeches, but Governor Hughes will never find out. John found the lure of the sunny South irresistible, so he heads for Miami to stake his claim there. ASHIMA SAINI Internal Medicine Hahnemann University Philadelphia, PA Ashima received a chemistry degree along with the Annual Award for Ex- cellence in Chemistry from the American Chemical Society prior to joining our class. An avid photographer with her own darkroom, she has traveled ex- tensively honing her skills. Her traveling highlights included two months tour- ing India and Europe during her senior year. BARRY FERGUSON SAUNDERS Internal Medicine Rhode Island Hospital Providence, RI Barry is a graduate of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.S. in Zoology. Notably, he coordinated the “Design of Disease” Symposium — the first of its kind on the University of Maryland campus. His rendition of “Med Chi Restaurant” at Freshman Follies was special to the class and to Barry. His favorite pastime during medical school was “transcendence through subver- sion.” He would have never made it through without his wife, Susan. “Imagine what we know; — what we imagine.” Shelley 136 JONATHAN SAMUEL SCHWAB Pediatrics New England Center Hospital Boston, MA Prior to medical school, Jon received a psychology degree from Amherst. LISA A. SCHWENDER Pathology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Lisa will be remembered for the infamous Schwender Collection — those items of offbeat humor that graced her equally infamous pathology Notesets — and for helping us all pass Hematology. She also lent her writing talents to the Follies and the yearbook. Lisa is proud of her participation in the Ad- vanced Accelerated Program in Pathology, ice skating (her adult precision team won the national title in 1985, and she’s an official ice dance judge), and having ridden 115 different roller coasters. After spending a year at GMAB, Lisa plans to transfer to a residency program in Los Angeles, after marrying Warren, who lives there. She hopes to practice eventually as a medical examiner. “I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints, ’cause sinners are much more fun.” — Billy Joel KENNETH JAMES SEEN Family Practice Wheeling Hospital Wheeling, WV Ken received a Biology degree from GMBC prior to medical school. Like many of us, he disliked the basic science years with their lack of clinical correlation. On the other hand, he enjoyed walking to the Inner Harbor for parties after tests. He would like to thank Sallie Rixey for her help throughout medical school. 137 NADINE B. SEMER Internal Medicine University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Nadine, a biochemistry major at College Park, spent time serving the class in various capacities. She was a member of the Biochemistry Committee, the Pharmacology committee, and the Year II Curriculum Committee. She has lot s of good memories of these four years, but would most like to forget “every exam we ever had.” To do so, she spent her spare time reading and “pumping iron” (the things you never knew about people until you read the yearbook!). ASAD ULLAH SHEIKH Obstetrics Gynecology Oakwood Hospital Dearborn, MI Asad came to us after receiving a BA in Psychology from Boston University. The high point of his medical school years was IHB with the Big “O”; everything else appears dim in comparison. His most memorable moment was “waking up in the morning.” He attributes his survival to “waking up in the morning.” ABBAS EDWARD SINA Internal Medicine Mt. Sinai Medical Center Miami Beach, FL Abbas did his undergraduate work in biology at Towson state. During the last four years, the many sacrifices were the worst part. However, finishing was the highlight and definitely worth the sacrifices! When he wasn’t studying, Abbas enjoyed skiing and windsurfing. 138 JAMES MARK SKOLKA Anesthesiology Hershey Medical Center Hershey, PA Jim earned his Molecular Biology B.A. from GMBC. The smell of anatomy lab “Schlem” finds difficult to forget. His favorite pastime during med school was “12 oz. curls.” Graduation, an event he looks forward to, would not have been possible without the Noteservice. Jim plans to do a transitional year at York Hospital in York, PA, before moving on to Hershey. MARK ALAN SMITH Internal Medicine Eisenhower Army Medical Center Fort Gordon, GA Mark received a BS in Psychology from University of Maryland at College Park. Maintaining sanity and passing grades were Mark’s major ac- complishments. During Psych he discovered through one of HIS personal “messengers” that God lives in South Baltimore and listens to Barry Manilow! He attributes his survival to his wife Mary’s support. MARK VOGEL SMITH Neurosurgery SUNY Upstate Medical Center Syracuse, NY An engineer, Mark earned his BSEE from College Park. Despite medical school, he maintained his sanity. In addition, he found time for interesting research (all those poor rats!). The unveiling of the cadaver on the first day of classes will be forever etched in his mind. However, the IHB movies were less than memorable. He wouldn’t have made it through without the support of his wife, Lisa, and his Lord. “And when we turned up to high power we found ... a Donati body!” — Dr. Strum 139 RICHARD MILLER SNEERINGER Internal Medicine Vanderbilt University Affiliate Nashville, TN Richard received his undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins prior to becoming a medical student. Richard left this message for his classmates “These four years have been a lot of fun. I hope to see all of you as successful physicians later.” GARY ROSS STERN Internal Medicine North Shore University Manhasset, NY Gary earned a Chemistry degree from Western Maryland College before medical school. In his spare time, he enjoys playing tennis, running, skiing, cooking and listening to music. Like many of us, he would like to forget that seemingly unending stream of Monday exams. However, senior year was truly a memorable experience. He would not have made it through these past four years without the support of family and friends. RICHARD CHARLES STRAUSS General Surgery Presbyterian Hospital New York, NY Richard received a BS from University of Maryland at College Park before medical school. 140 W. SCOTT SCJPPLEE Obstetrics Gynecology Union Memorial Hospital Baltimore, MD Scott worked as a stockbroker before deciding on a career in medicine. His satiric pen produced “The Exam’’ for the Sophomore Follies, and contributed to several other Follies skits. Scott also was a class Notetaker during Freshman and Sophomore years. A rumor that a short story written by Scott was published in the City Paper remains unsubstantiated. DEBRA DAWN TAYLOR Internal Medicine Medical College of Pennsylvania Philadelphia, PA Prior to medical school, Debra received her B.A. in Microbiology from Rutgers University. She would prefer to forget the first two years and the “cheerful " nurses and lab techs at CJMH. The former is probably a good reason for her fondest memories being the times she hooked class during the first two years. She attributes her survival of medical school to the support of family and friends. DEAN SCOTT TIPPETT Neurology University of Maryland Baltimore, MD A graduate of Loyola College with a major in biology, Dean is a man of diverse interests. His hobbies include commercial art, pen-and-ink drawing, and writing computer programs for medicine. He also did research in neuro- science, participated in CAPP, and served as a CPR instructor and as head of the blood drawing team. Dean will never forget having to get the hospital by 4 AM daily to supervise the phlebotomists, but he would like to. He thanks his wife Donna and his family for helping him make it to graduation. After a year at St. Agnes, it’s back to CJMH for neurology. 141 NEVINS WOODCOCK TODD, III Internal Medicine Mercy Hospital Baltimore, MD Nevins received a BS from Davidson College before medical school. LEONA RD E. TROUT, III Family Practice Fort Lewis Madigan A.M.C. Tacoma, WA Leonard received a BA in Health Science and Policy in 1982 from GMBC. He spends his spare time hiking and backpacking in the Rockies. Eventually, he hopes to open a practice there. His most memorable moments occurred dur- ing a rural family practice preceptorship. We will remember him for his heavy metal guitar playing at the Sophomore and Senior Follies. On the other hand, he would like to forget surgery, National Boards, and all those blown IV’s. His survival of medical school is attributable to his mother’s encouragement and Henry’s friendship. HENRY TSAO Anesthesiology Johns Hopkins University Baltimore, MD Henry graduated from College Park summa cum laude with a BS in biochemistry. He became a well-known figure in our class very early: as one of our A-V techs, Henry was one of the few who atended every lecture. An avid pop music fan as well as a prolific Notetaker, Henry made sure his notesets always contained the Billboard Top Ten list for that week. In addition to his in- terest in music and movies, he also enjoys running, fishing, and “wasting time.” Henry plans to spend a year doing just that, during his medical intern- ship at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco, before returning to Baltimore to learn how to put people to sleep. 142 FRANCIS XAVIER TONNE Y Internal Medicine Eastern Virginia Medical School Norfolk, VA Prior to joining our class, Fran received a BS in Biology from Roanoke College and a MS in Physiology from Georgetown University. A person who ap- preciates the outdoors and sun, Fran enjoys sailing, golf, traveling and living at the beach. His most memorable moment was delivering his first baby. NICHOLGS VISNICH, JR. Internal Medicine CWRG University Hospital Cleveland, OH A graduate of UMBC with a Biology degree, Nick enjoyed everything about medical school — ‘‘the experience of it all.” However, his month of surgery internship in Florida was an experience he would not mind forgetting. When not studying, he plays golf and frequents P.J.’s. He would like to be remembered as someone to count on, always there to help you during the rotations. MARK JOHN VOCCI Internal Medicine Union Memorial Hospital Baltimore, MD Mark received a Chemistry degree from Loyola and a doctorate in Pathology from the University of Maryland. Most of us remember Mark as one of the forces behind the note service and a great pathology reference. When not hit- ting the books, he enjoys playing tennis, traveling to exotic lands, and meeting people through the National Guard. While he enjoyed his Senior year, neurosurgery was an experience he’d like to forget. He would like to thank Dr. John Combs, who encouraged him to apply to medical school. Lastly, he’s proud to be a member of the Class of 1986. 143 VANCE EMERY WATSON Radiology Duke University Durham, NC Vance tells us that the best part of this four year experience was “the last six weeks” (spent vacationing in Europe) and the worst part was “the first three and a half years.” He held up well though, made AOA, and still had time for racquetball, backpacking, and “enjoying life with some of the great friends I’ve made here.” Vance obtained a degree in biomedical engineering at Tulane before coming to medical school. “Being my fastest four years, I ponder how so many long months fit within.” KATHRYN HOFMEISTER WATT Psychiatry Sheppard Pratt Towson, MD A graduate of Bryn Mawr with a B.A. in Economics, Kathryn worked as a medical secretary before deciding on a career of medicine. During medical school, she served on the Judicial Committee. Somehow, she found time to marry John, a schoolteacher, second year. One of the many students who traveled senior year, Kathryn and John visited England. ERIC WEINTRACJB Psychiatry University of Maryland Baltimore, MD Eric was a political science major at College Park before he decided to come to medical school. How did he decide? Well, it seems to be a family tradition, his father being a member of our psychiatry department. The best part of the last four years was getting through the hard times and meeting Nancy. Eric’s spare time was spent reading, listening to music, and enjoying sports such as basketball and softball. 144 JULIA ANN WILLIAMS Family Practice San Bernardino County Medical Ctr. San Bernardino, CA A graduate of University of Maryland at College Park, Julie earned a Zoology B.S. Often seen biking to class, she truly enjoys this sport. Passing Sophomore year and finally finishing Pharmacology were very memorable to her. During Sophomore year she acted as Family Practice Club president. She attributes her survival of medical school to Domingo, Chris, and Sallie. CELESTE BERYL WISER Education A native Californian, Celeste attended Stanford University receiving a BS and MS in Biological Sciences and MA in English. While there, she wrote a book of poems, Thinking of Many Strangers. During medical school, she did peds psych research on the White Mountain Apaches and helped organize the “Design of Disease " symposium. In addition, she served on the Clinical Years Currriculum Committee, Freshman Student Council Rep and as an AM- SA delegate (San Diego convention). Her most memorable moments were springs spent with Whit in Jamaica and the “Sophomore Horror Picture Show.” She would not have made it through without: loving friends on both coasts, laughter, imagination, loud music, that inner spark of determination, escapes, adventures and mischief! She hopes to become a child psychiatrist after spending a year teaching high school. CHOU YING WU Internal Medicine University of Missouri Kansas City, MO Chou earned a BS in Zoology from University of Maryland at College Park prior to joining our class. When not studying she enjoys traveling. Notably, she visited California and Taiwan senior year. 145 CHET IRA WYMAN Picture unavailable General Surgery New York Medical College Valhalla, NY Chet, a Baltimore native, attended Syracuse University in Upstate New York before returning to town for med school. During the first two years, he supported his interests in skiing, scuba diving, photography, theatre, and sports by bartending full time. During the clinical years, Chet did surgical research at the Shock Trauma Center. Throughout all four years, his favorite pastime was sleep- ing, which he could do any time, anywhere . . . including his anatomy lab table. Chet apparently slept through our request for a yearbook photo. It’s funny to think that an experience so long and demanding, so absorbing and yet frustrating, with so many contradictions and requirements for sacrifice and so few actual day-to-day rewards will probably be remembered by most of us as one of the most significant periods of our lives. It’s funny how many good reasons there are to be sorry that it’s over. Scott Milsteen Were you really in the class of 1986?

Harlan Stone Dr. Bernice Sigman Dr. Marjorie Wilson Dr. Theodore Woodward A Note from Barbara and Lisa During the last four years, there have been lots of good memories (some not so good, but still memorable for their significance) and great people. We’ve tried to record some of these on paper. Produc- ing the yearbook turned out to be a more major undertaking than we ever imagined. The task was a pleasure, though, thanks to an incredi- ble group of section editors who worked hundreds of hours and met deadlines in spite of moving households, having babies, and, oh yes, finishing medical school! Thanks also to all who pitched in to help with typing, proofing, etc. Our appreciation to Pat Mahoney of Taylor Publishing who was both an invaluable resource and a pleasure to work with. A special thanks to Jim and Alan (who got roped into this only by association, with Barbara and Donna) but spent many (most- ly) uncomplaining hours helping. We hope you enjoy the yearbook! It has been a privilege and a joy to have shared the last four years with this class and faculty. We wish you all the best always.

On such an occasion as the present, when the Alma Mater is in festal array, when we joy in her growing prosperity, it is good to hark back to the olden days and gratefully to recall the men who labours in the past have made the present possible. Sir William Osier Valedictory Address, University of Pennsylvania, May 1 , 1889 May we follow in the footsteps of our forefathers in medicine, striving in the same way to expand on the limits of our knowledge in hopes of clarifying the unknown and making use of all that is already known. May we continue their tradition of commitment to excellence. May we be part of all that we have met from the anatomy lab to commence- ment as we, too, become part of the University ' s significant past. Steve George Class of 1986 152
