My life's devotion

George M. Lazarus, MD, ’71

George M. Lazarus, P&S Class of 1971, longtime member of the clinical faculty in the Department of Pediatrics at P&S, has devoted his life to caring for the young, serving patients and mentoring students daily, and in so doing, promulgating the core values of our great medical school. A former director and staunch supporter of the P&S Alumni Association, and of the P&S Club, his service as a longstanding member of the P&S Admissions Committee is legendary. Dr. Lazarus’ annual reception at his home for current and past P&S students interviewed by him is one of the best kept secrets of P&S alumni outreach. At the 2017 P&S Alumni Reunion Gala, Dr. Lazarus was honored with the Gold Medal for Meritorious Service to the College of Physicians & Surgeons and its Alumni Association.
