Steven L. Cohn, M.D., professor emeritus in the Department of Medicine and former medical director of the UHealth Preoperative Assessment Center and the UM/Jackson Memorial Hospital medical consultation service, has remained active since his retirement from UM.
In the past six months, he was the Honor Health Lillian R. and James M. Reed Visiting Scholar in Scottsdale, Arizona, and co-director of the Perioperative Summit in Orlando, Florida. He gave multiple presentations on various perioperative medicine topics at meetings held by the Society of Hospital Medicine, the American College of Physicians and the International Anesthesiology Research Society. Dr. Cohn also gave lectures about anticoagulation in Dallas and Las Vegas, and he has been invited to speak again at the Perioperative Summit and national meetings of the American College of Physicians and the Society of Hospital Medicine next year.
His chapter on preoperative medical consultation was just published in the new edition of Cecil/Goldman’s Textbook of Medicine, as was his “Update in Perioperative Cardiovascular Medicine” in the October issue of the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine. In addition, McGraw-Hill, partnering with the American College of Physicians, has invited him to author/edit a new book on perioperative medicine to be published late next year.
“So much for easing into retirement!” Dr. Cohn said.
