Professorship Supports Hospitalist Care

December 14, 2017

A new professorship will provide permanent support for the hospitalist program in the Department of Medicine, which trains and deploys clinicians who spend the majority of their time caring for hospital inpatients. The Harry C. and Misook Doolittle Professorship of Medicine will be held by Paul Lee, MD, who joined the hospitalist group in the Department of Medicine’s Division of General Medicine in 2001 and has served as its medical director since 2003. The professorship is made possible by a $2.5 million gift from Misook and Harry Doolittle. Misook Doolittle is a fashion industry entrepreneur, and her husband, Harry, is a visual artist. The couple has endowed the professorship specifically in Dr. Lee’s honor.
