"I can think of no one more deserving than Dr. Selinger to hold the Carol L. and Gustave Sirot Endowed Chair in Family Medicine. Throughout his career, Dr. Selinger has been a leader and advocate for family medicine. This endowed chair not only recognizes his many accomplishments, but also his vision for primary care and especially family medicine.”

“All of the aforementioned diseases are included in medical education curriculum in various forms,” Selinger said. “The lack of curriculum exposure in medical school and clinical exposure in residency programs and teaching hospitals have most likely contributed to the misdiagnosis and inadequate treatment of ME/CFS. At the Netter School, we plan to change this by creating a new curriculum for our medical school students.”
