Harley A. Haynes, MD: Honored with the Dermatology Foundation's 2003 Lifetime Career Educator Award
Harley A. Haynes, MD, has accumulated such a long and distinguished track
record in teaching within the dermatology program throughout the extensive
Harvard system that he is considered the "Dean of Dermatology
Education" there. His full range of educational activities has amplified
his influence nation wide. The Dermatology Foundation recognized his fundamental
impact on the preparation of tomorrow's dermatologists with their Lifetime
Career Educator Award, which he received at the Foundation's Annual Meeting on
February 7, 2004 during the annual convention of the American Academy of
Dermatology in Washington, DC.
After graduating Princeton and completing his medical training-including two
separate residencies-within the Harvard system, Dr. Haynes left only for a
3-year research fellowship in the Dermatology Branch of the National Cancer
Institute between his two residencies at Harvard. He joined the dermatology
faculty at Harvard in 1970, and in 1987 became part of what is now the
Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. His enormous agenda of
clinical activities within the entire reach of the Harvard system has been
matched by his teaching commitments and impact. "Dr. Haynes is a very
powerful force in teaching about skin and dermatology, with great clinical
judgment-the complete compassionate physician who is admired by students,
residents, and faculty," observes his department chair John A. Parrish, MD.
Colleague Thomas S. Kupper points to "the number of dermatologists who have
trained here and subsequently named Dr. Haynes as the greatest influence on
Harvard Medical School's tributes include the Faculty Award for Excellence in
Teaching (in 1985 and again in 1987), the the Department of Dermatology's Sam
Moschella Teaching Scholar Award (1997), and most recently-in 2000-the Daniel D.
Federman Outstanding Clinical Educator Award. Additionally, Dr. Haynes has
influenced the training of all dermatology residents through contributions to
national educational committees and the significant number of teaching materials
he has published. He reaches practicing dermatologists through regular
educational sessions at AAD meetings.
Dr. Haynes is currently Professor of Dermatology at Harvard Medical School,
Vice Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at Brigham and Women's Hospital,
and Associate Chief, Dermatology Service, Boston VA Healthcare System.
The Dermatology Foundation is a nonprofit organization created in 1964 by
concerned dermatologists to provide a national organization for advancing
patient care through funded research, and is now second only to the federal
government as a source of funding for investigative dermatology. The Foundation
raises funds from within both the specialty and from the cosmetic,
pharmaceutical and surgical industries to support a research program of the
highest quality that is also exceptional in its breadth and depth.
