Dame Sheila Sherlock, MD, Visiting Lectureship in Hepatology

In 1959, Dr. Sheila Sherlock was appointed to the Chair of the Department of Medicine at the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine. She was the first woman to be appointed to the Chair of Medicine in a British medical school. Dr. Sherlock’s unit at the Royal Free was the “Mecca of Hepatology” for referring physicians worldwide and THE Liver Center for trainees in Hepatology from the 1960s to the 1980s. Dr. Sherlock published more than 600 papers, and wrote or edited over 25 books. She trained more than 300 physicians and investigators, many of whom went on to be directors of liver units all over the world. She remained very close to all her trainees and considered every one as part of the “Sherlock Family”. In 1978, Dr. Sherlock was knighted by the Queen of England as “Dame Commander of the British Empire” for her contributions to medicine.

Education and training of other physicians in liver diseases has been a cornerstone of Dr. Sherlock’s work. Keith Henley, MD, the first hepatologist at the University of Michigan and Anna Lok, MD, who has been Director of Clinical Hepatology at the University of Michigan since 1995, both received their training in hepatology under the tutelage of Dame Sheila Sherlock.

To honor her mentor, Dr. Lok and the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology established this lectureship.

Each year, a world leader in hepatology will be invited to present the Dame Sheila Sherlock, MD Lecture on an important topic in liver disorders.
