College names Harvard professor to lead Medical Knowledge and Education Division
ACP has named Steven E. Weinberger, FACP, Senior Vice President of the Medical Knowledge and Education Division.
Dr. Weinberger, faculty associate dean for medical education and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, will lead the division, which is responsible for many of the College's educational products. Those products include MKSAP, practice guidelines, electronic publishing and the publishing functions of Annals of Internal Medicine. He will take over his new duties on March 1.
A board-certified pulmonologist, Dr. Weinberger is perhaps best known for his textbook, "Principles of Pulmonary Medicine," now in its fourth edition. His clinical and research activities have centered around pulmonary and critical care medicine.
Dr. Weinberger is also executive vice chair of the department of medicine at Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and executive director of the Carl J. Shapiro Institution for Education and Research, an organization affiliated with both Harvard and Beth Israel.
Dr. Weinberger received his medical degree from Harvard in 1973. He joined the Harvard faculty in 1978.
In a press release, ACP Executive Vice President and CEO John Tooker, FACP, said that Dr. Weinberger "brings experience as an excellent medical educator and leadership skills from one of the nation's best medical schools and finest hospitals, and a solid research background to head ACP's education and information efforts."
