Records (Bendixen)


Records of the Office of Vice President for Health Sciences/Dean of the Faculty of Medicine largely created during the administration of Henrik H. Bendixen, who served as acting Vice President for Health Sciences in 1984 before being named to the position in 1985. He was succeeded in early 1989 by Herbert Pardes.

Particularly well-documented topics in the records include medical school relations with two of its affiliated hospitals, Bassett (Cooperstown, N.Y.) and Harlem; growing academic ties with China; the establishment with Presbyterian Hospital of a joint Office of Clinical Trials; the activities of the university's Office of Science & Technology Development; affiliation with St. Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College in London; and the site visit to the medical school of the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) in Jan.-Feb. 1989.
