The Tufts-New England Medical Center’s (NEMC) Division of Nephrology celebrated the 70th birthday of John T. Harrington, M.D. ’62, in January and noted his contributions to the medical center, Tufts University School of Medicine and the field of nephrology. Harrington began his association with NEMC in 1965 as a nephrology fellow, subsequently serving as director of the dialysis unit and chief of the division of general internal medicine. In 1996 he was appointed dean of Tufts University School of Medicine, a position he held until 2002. As dean emeritus, Harrington currently serves as a senior nephrologist and professor of medicine. The celebration also featured the inaugural “Dr. John T. Harrington Medical Grand Rounds,” and the announcement of the creation of an endowed fund in nephrology in Harrington’s name as well as the naming of the Dr. John T. Harrington Conference Room in the Division of Nephrology.
