Physicians whose academic titles include the "clinical" designation maintain private offices in the community as well as teach and fulfill other responsibilities within the Department of Medicine at various Rochester- area hospitals. Drs. Burday, Haley, Kerper, Labanowski and Bergin all teach at Strong Memorial Hospital; Dr. Chamberlain teaches at Rochester General Hospital; and Dr. Schneider teaches at the Genesee Hospital.

The fellowships honor the memory of Lawrence A.

The fellowships were established in 1966 by Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert J.C. McCurdy.
