UR Establishes Paul H. Fine, M.D. Professorship

May 19, 2000

With a generous gift from Dorris Carlson and the Chester and Dorris Carlson Charitable Trust, the University of Rochester is honoring a distinguished internist and faculty member by creating the Paul H. Fine, M.D. Professorship in Medicine.

An undergraduate of the University of Rochester and a 1961 alumnus of the UR School of Medicine and Dentistry, Paul Fine completed his post-graduate training at Strong Memorial Hospital. In 1967, he helped to establish one of the community's most active private practices, the Olsan Medical Group. For many years while he served as a senior-attending physician at The Genesee Hospital, Fine continued to teach medical students as a clinical associate professor of the University of Rochester.

Fine is a fellow in the American College of Physicians and has long been recognized as a gifted educator. His list of awards include the Frederick W. Anderson Teaching Award for Excellence in Teaching and Service, the Clinical Teaching Award within the Primary Care Program in Internal Medicine, and the American College of Physicians' Upstate Regional Physician Recognition Award. For six years, he held the Lawrence A. Kohn Senior Teaching Fellowship at the University of Rochester.

In addition, Fine has served on the boards of both Preferred Care and ViaHealth. He is a past president of The Genesee Hospital medical staff and served as president of the Rochester Society of Internal Medicine. At the School of Medicine and Dentistry, Fine has been a member of the Alumni Council and the Trustees Council.

Fine was honored at a reception on May 18, 2000 at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
