Donations made to honor physicians on National Doctors’ Day

In honor of National Doctors’ Day, celebrated on March 30, the Office of Development invited individuals to “Honor a Doctor” by making a donation in the name of a physician who cared for them or a loved one.

The day was first celebrated nationally in 1991 to recognize our nation’s physicians for their leadership in the prevention and treatment of illness and injury. Donations were made to recognize nearly 300 Froedtert & MCW and community physicians, scientists and individuals, including those listed below.

James E. Aiman, MDTwo other physicians honored were previous faculty who made big impacts not only in the department, but in OBGYN itself and have endowed lectureships named after them. Dr. E. James Aiman served 29 years on the faculty of MCW, during which he served terms as Vice Chair and twice as Acting Chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Aiman made enormous contributions to the College’s medical student and resident education programs during his tenure. He directed the student education efforts in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology for many years, and is clearly responsible for the career choice of many current OBGYN residents and former OBGYN residents across the country.

Eleanor Delfs cropDr. Eleanor Delfs was the first Patrick J. and Margaret G. McMahon Professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She was a scholar and humanitarian who gave birth to a generation of obstetricians.

Thank you to all of our physicians for your hard work and dedication to make our lives better.
