  Lindenbaum Professorship
  To honor the memory of Dr. John Lindenbaum each year the Department of Medicine invites a prominent minority physician to be a Lindenbaum Visiting Professor at Columbia University Medical Center. Over two days, the Lindenbaum Professorship includes opportunities for the department’s leadership to meet with the honoree and the minority faculty. The honoree also meets with housestaff, fellows, and students, often leading morning report and joining attending rounds. One of the highlights of the visit is when the visiting Professor gives Medical Grand Rounds.
