Richard W. Schwartz, MD

The late Dr. Richard Schwartz' passion and excellence in gastrointestinal surgery, surgical education and the development of physician leaders were well-known before his untimely death in 2010. His influence touched all who had the honor of working alongside him.
To honor his legacy, the University of Kentucky Department of Surgery established the annual Richard W. Schwartz Memorial Lectureship.
Janet Schwartz, Andrew Bernard, MD, and David Sloan, MD set the foundation of the endowed lectureship in 2014. To make a gift of support, please contact Dr. Bernard, Dr. Sloan or UK College of Medicine development officer Lindsey Clem by email or at 859.323.1313.
