Lobitz Visiting Professorship
The Walter C. Lobitz Jr., M.D., Lectureship was established in 1977 at the time of Dr. Lobitz's retirement. The lectureship celebrates Dr. Lobitz's distinguished career as professor and chairman of the Department of Dermatology at Oregon Health & Science University from 1959 to 1977, and his countless contributions to dermatology as a master clinician, investigator, leader and more.
Sancy Leachman, M.D., Ph.D., introduced the 2013 Lecturer with a tribute to its namesake, Dr. Lobitz.
