To Boldly Go: Maryland’s Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
In January 2005, Maryland appointed Scott Strome, MD, to head its new department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Since that time, the nationally recognized surgeon and researcher from the Mayo Clinic has expanded his faculty from six to 14 physicians. Their interests have grown to far exceed the standard treatments for ear infections, sinusitis, and tonsillitis.

The editorial board is proud to present Volume 92, Number 1 of the Bulletin magazine, the oldest medical alumni association magazine in the United States. In addition to serving as the medical school’s primary communications link with alumni since 1916, it serves as a bridge connecting us to our past. This section of the magazine features snippets of past issues, offering a look back at our medical school 25, 50 & 75 years ago.
