Professor Emeritus Catherine N. Hinterbuchner, M.D., Leaves Legacy of Endowed Professorship and Chair of the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine

New York Medical College is the recipient of a $3 million gift to establish the Catherine and Ladislav P. Hinterbuchner Professorship and Chair in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan to support teaching and training of medical students and residents and to foster research. The endowment is from the estate of Catherine Hinterbuchner, M.D., who led the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine—as the College’s first woman chair—and was chief of rehabilitation medicine at both Metropolitan Hospital Center and Lincoln Hospital in New York City for nearly 40 years. Eduardo Lopez, M.D., has been selected to serve as the inaugural chair.        InTouch 6-26-17
