The 2009 Legends

Dr. Benfield

At Harbor-UCLA Medical Center from 1967-1977, Dr. Benfield was a leader in lung transplantation research. While there, he received the 1971 Golden Apple Award for outstanding teaching at UCLA's medical school. His laboratory also created lung cancer models for following the cellular changes from normal to invasive and metastatic cancers.

In 1977, Benfield became the James Utley Professor and Chairman of Surgery at Boston University. A year later, he returned to Los Angeles to serve as a UCLA clinical professor and chairman of the Division of Surgery at the City of Hope, where he founded the National Institutes of Health-funded surgical oncology fellowship.

In 1988, Benfield built a new Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery as professor at the University of California, Davis School of Medicine. The UCD Thoracic Surgery Residency continues.

In 1999, Benfield was elected an honorary member of the European Association for Cardiothoracic Surgery. His Honored Guest Address, The Language of Science, initiated his current work in English for Medical Purposes.

Benfield's accomplishments include service as a Director of the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, and presidencies of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, the Thoracic Surgery Foundation for Research and Education, the Thoracic Surgery Directors Association and the Western Thoracic Surgical Association.
