John Hutton, MD, Dean Emeritus Passes Away at Age 79

John Hutton, MD, College of Medicine Emeritus Dean and professor of pediatrics, passed away Sunday morning. He was 79. Dr. Hutton, the 46th Dean of the College of Medicine from 1987 until 2002, was the third longest serving dean in the college’s history. He oversaw the transformation of clinical programs and partnerships at the college and more than a 10-fold increase in sponsored research funding.

Dr. Hutton, a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, was recruited by William Schubert, MD, in 1984 as the Albert B. Sabin Professor of Pediatrics and Vice Chairman for Basic Science Research at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Research Foundation, where he was instrumental in building Cincinnati Children’s into a global leader in biomedical research and graduate education.

The Hutton Lectureship in Ethics was created to honor Dr. Hutton’s integrity and humanism and ability to address complex issues with calm and compassion, and in 2003 he received the Daniel Drake Medal for his impact on UC and the practice of medicine.

A memorial service for Dr. Hutton is being planned.

Volunteers Needed in Admissions and Student Affairs

College of Medicine volunteers are needed to assist admissions and student affairs. The medical school admissions program needs faculty, healthcare providers, staff and community members to interview MD candidates. The College of Medicine employs the empirical Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) and conducts interviews on 13 dates between late-August and mid-January. Interviewers choose either a shift from 8:45 a.m. to 12:05 p.m. or 2 p.m. to 5:10 p.m. and can participate once or as many times as they like. Contact MD Admissions for more information or view online and choose dates and times.

The college’s student affairs program needs physicians to conduct mock interviews to help fourth-year medical students prepare for the Residency Match. This year, the format of the program has changed from group events to individual appointments. Interviewers will provide Student Affairs with their available time slots between Sept 12 and Oct 21. Each mock interview will take 35-40 minutes. Please sign-up for mock interviews by June 30, 2016.
