History

Arnold Aberman
Arnold Aberman Arnold Aberman received his M.D. from McGill University in 1967, followed by postgraduate training in Internal Medicine, Respirology, and Critical Care at McGill, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, University of California San Francisco, and University of Southern California. In 1973 he was recruited to Toronto as Director of the Intensive Care Unit at Mount Sinai Hospital, where he later served as Physician-in-Chief from 1977-87. In 1989, Dr. Aberman was appointed Chair of the Department of Medicine and Physician-in-Chief at The Toronto Hospital, the first Physician-in-Chief of the combined Toronto General and Toronto Western Departments of Medicine. Dr. Aberman's major mandate was to merge the two hospital departments clinically, academically, administratively, and financially. The process was completed by early 1992, and the success of the merger served as a model for further hospital mergers that were to follow in the mid-1990's. While merging the two departments, Dr. Aberman also began the process of changing the relationship of the seven hospital Departments of Medicine and the University Department from a federation to a more centralized and cohesive university department. An Executive Committee composed of all Physicians-in-Chief was created, the Division Directors were given increased authority, the Departmental budget was placed more firmly under the control of the Chair, and steps were initiated to create a single Internal Medicine training program. However, in December, 1992, before many of these changes could be implemented, Dr. Aberman was appointed Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, the first Chair of the Department of Medicine to serve in this position. From 1987-97 Dr. Phillipson served as Physician-in-Chief at Mount Sinai Hospital, and in 1992 was appointed Acting Chair of the Department of Medicine when Arnold Aberman stepped down to become Dean.
