Oct October 22 Wed 2014
Glenn Chertow, MD, MPH, division chief of Nephrology, received the 2014 Denise O’Leary Award for Clinical Excellence for his research accomplishments and deep commitment to patient care.
The award was established eight years ago as a lasting tribute to Denise’s commitment to excellence at Stanford Hospital. Prior to joining Stanford in 2007, Chertow served on the faculties of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He has had a prolific research career, authoring more than 300 peer-reviewed publications. He has also led the research network in trials of dialysis therapy, and his work in determining the role and duration of dialysis in acute renal failure has transformed medical care for patients.
Lloyd Minor, MD, dean of the Stanford School of Medicine, said, "At once a distinguished investigator, a beloved mentor, and a deeply compassionate clinician, Glenn embodies the mission and ideals of Stanford Medicine. He is an inspiration for what we as an institution are trying to achieve. Glenn is honored here tonight with the Denise O’Leary Award for Clinical Excellence because he understands that the patient is at the center of what we do—and that to provide the best care for every patient requires pushing the boundaries of discovery, mentoring the next generation of leaders, and delivering outstanding patient-centered care.”
