Lewis Weintraub, MD, honored for excellence
Date:2/2/2012

(Boston) - Lewis Weintraub, MD, a hematologist/oncologist at Boston Medical Center (BMC) and professor of medicine in the section of hematology-oncology at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), has been named the 2011 recipient of the Jerome Klein Award for Physician Excellence at BMC. This award was established in 2010 to commemorate Dr. Klein's 50 years of service to BMC/BUSM and is presented annually to a physician who shares Dr. Klein's attributes. Weintraub received this recognition for his clinical and research excellence, leadership and dedicated commitment to education and mentoring.

During his career, Weintraub pursued a broad range of clinical and translational research topics in hematology. He is the author of 78 papers and reviews covering topics such as hemochromatosis, myelofibrosis, anemia and thrombocytopenia. He also served on numerous hospital and school boards. However, teaching has been a seminal interest throughout his career, and an area in which he has made a great impact.

"Dr. Weintraub is a clinical hematologist without peer, and has been effective in transmitting his love of hematology and his skills in hematology diagnosis and clinical care to trainees of all levels," said Ravin Davidoff, MD, BMC's Chief Medical Officer. "He has been an outstanding clinical teacher and great communicator of hematology knowledge to generations of trainees throughout a 39-year career at BUSM/ BMC and our affiliated hospitals," added Davidoff.

Weintraub attended Dartmouth as an undergraduate and then attended Harvard Medical School. He trained in medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Michigan and then in hematology at Mount Sinai Hospital. During the Vietnam War era, he joined the "yellow berets" and served as the Assistant Chief of Hematology at Walter Reed Hospital, where he also carried out research on iron metabolism. He returned to Boston in 1965, first on the faculty at Tufts Medical School and New England Medical Center under the eminent Dr. Jane Desforges. In 1972 he was recruited to Boston University School of Medicine as an associate professor of medicine. In 1977 he was promoted to Professor and Chief of Hematology at University Hospital (now known as BMC), a position he held until 2003.
