Glaser elected to Royal College of Physicians

Dr. Robert J. Glaser, consulting professor of medicine, emeritus, and former dean of the School of Medicine, has been elected a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, in London.

Founded in 1518 to create a “body of regular physicians empowered to decide who should practice medicine in greater London,” the college today provides credentials for internists in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth countries. In addition, it honors up to eight non-members annually by electing them fellows.

Glaser, who served as Stanford’s vice president for medical affairs and dean of medicine from 1965 to 1970, was also honored recently by the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center with the Florence Rena Sabin Award. Glaser was dean of the Colorado University School of Medicine from 1957 to 1963 and was vice president for medical affairs there from 1959 to 1963.
