Reich Lectureship

Mt. Sinai Rudolph Reich Lectureship

The Mt. Sinai Rudolph Reich Lectureship was established by the Orthopaedic Department at Mt. Sinai Hospital in 1965 as an educational forum for Orthopaedic Surgeons. It is befitting that these annual lectures continue as a tribute to Dr. Reich who served as Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at Mt. Sinai Hospital from 1935 to 1954.

In keeping the Mt. Sinai legacy alive, Co-chairs, A. Seth Greenwald, D.Phil.(Oxon) and William H. Seitz, Jr., M.D., proudly honor the continuation of this lectureship.

The Mt. Sinai Reich Lecture is supported by an endowment from the Reich Family and the Mt. Sinai Health Foundation.

Dr. Rudolph Reich maintained an active orthopaedic practice spanning fifty-eight years until two months before his death on September 6, 1977 at the age of eighty-six. He was a productive, vital, energetic and enthusiastic clinician, teacher and researcher.

Dr. Reich had particular interest in femoral neck fractures, shoulder disabilities and fractures of the os calcis. His investigations were reported in the more than thirty papers he published.
