Dr. Corlin Past President of the American Medical Association
Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital is proud to welcome Richard Corlin, MD, FACP as a new member of its Board of Directors.
Dr. Corlin has held highly esteemed elected positions such as President of the American Medical Association from 2001 to 2002, and President of the California Medical Association from 1992-1993. He was a gubernatorial appointee to the California Board of Medical Quality Assurance, and was appointed to serve a four year term on the Advisory Committee to the Director of the National Institutes of Health in 1991.
"I am honored to serve on the Henry Mayo Board of Directors with such a dedicated and diverse group of individuals," stated Dr. Corlin. "I know firsthand, the important role non-profit community hospitals play in the American healthcare delivery system and I am looking forward to contributing to a growing, dynamic organization like Henry Mayo."
A graduate of Rutgers University and Hahnemann Medical College, Dr. Corlin served as a Lt. Commander in the United States Public Health Service, Heart Disease and Stroke Control Research Program early in his career. He subsequently accepted a gastroenterology fellowship at UCLA and started the first Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Unit at that hospital.
In 1975, Dr. Corlin entered private practice in Santa Monica and is currently the senior physician in a seven-member gastroenterology practice. He is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, and a member of both the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and the American Society of Internal Medicine. He is also an assistant clinical professor at the UCLA School of Medicine.
"We are delighted to have Dr. Corlin join our Board of Directors" stated Jim Hicken, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital Board Chair. "Dr. Corlin's tremendous experience and expertise will be of great value to our Board, but more importantly to our patients and community."
Whenever Dr. Corlin has a minute away from patient care or healthcare advocacy, he likes to spend his time vacationing with his wife Catherine and their children, skiing or taking drives in his 1927 Model T Ford.
