The event was held in the Pathology Library, which was dedicated in memory of Dr. William A. Gardner Jr. for his leadership and many contributions to the USA Department of Pathology. At the event, the Pathology Resident Office Suite was also dedicated in memory of Dr. J. Allan Tucker for his leadership and commitment to graduate medical education.
“Dr. Gardner and Dr. Tucker embodied the virtues that are uniquely part of the culture found in academic medical centers,” said Dr. John V. Marymont, vice president for medical affairs and dean of the USA College of Medicine. “As leaders in the USA College of Medicine, they both served as outstanding teachers, mentors for both students, residents and faculty alike. It is fitting that the rooms that will bear their names closely reflect the contributions they made during their careers and the high standards they set for those who follow in their footsteps.”
