Extract

Marvin I. Schwarz, MD, is the James C. Campbell Professor of Pulmonary Medicine at the University of Colorado. He was born to immigrant parents from Vienna, Austria, a mere 2 weeks after their arrival in this country upon their successful flight due to the Nazi invasion. Although Dr Schwarz (“Marvin” to many of us) had originally dreamed of being a basketball player, he found himself drawn to medicine, as his father was an obstetrics and gynecology practitioner. When asked why he did not follow directly in his father’s footsteps, Dr Schwarz replied, “I never liked women,” in a tongue-in-cheek fashion demonstrative of his whimsical irony. Dr Schwarz graduated from Bard College and was an Alpha Omega Alpha graduate of the Tulane University School of Medicine. He completed his internal medicine training at the Charity Hospital of Louisiana and was most influenced by his earliest mentor, Morton Ziskind, MD, at Tulane. Importantly, he was captivated by the clinical prowess exhibited by Dr Ziskind in the care of patients with pulmonary diseases. Following his pulmonary fellowship, Dr Schwarz completed his military obligations in the US Army. He was then recruited to the University of Colorado by Tom Petty, MD, in 1972, and his career in Colorado has flourished ever since.
