The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine announced MaCalus V. Hogan, MD, MBA, as its new David Silver Professor and chair of the department of orthopedic surgery, according to a press release.
Hogan was also announced as the chair of orthopedic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).
“The appointment of an individual to replace the ‘irreplaceable’ Dr. Freddie Fu is a decision that required great consideration. After a lengthy and deliberate selection process, Dr. Hogan was clearly the preferred choice to not only build upon Dr. Fu’s legacy, but also lead the department into new territories for the future,” Anantha Shekhar, MD, PhD, senior vice chancellor for the health sciences and John and Gertrude Petersen Dean of the school of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, said in the release. “His commitment to building a diverse environment at Pitt/UPMC and growing the academic excellence in musculoskeletal research made him the ideal next chair.”
