The Henry P. Russe, MD Citation for Exemplary Compassion in Healthcare
The Institute of Medicine and the Rush University Medical Center are proud to honor an outstanding individual with the The Henry P. Russe, MD Citation for Exemplary Compassion in Healthcare Award.
HENRY P. RUSSE, MD (February 12, 1928-May 10, 1991) served as Dean of Rush Medical College at Rush University Medical Center and served five terms as President of The Institute of Medicine of Chicago during an extraordinary decade of personal and professional commitment to the advancement of medicine. To recognize his contributions, the Trustees of Rush University Medical Center and The Institute of Medicine of Chicago have established the Henry P. Russe, MD Citation for Exemplary Compassion in Healthcare. This ongoing award demonstrates, as Dr. Russe exemplified, that humanitarianism must characterize the practice of medicine and medical education beyond the science, technology and personal skillfulness essential in caring for the health of our fellow citizens.
The Institute of Medicine of Chicago will present these awards:
