Keeping Up with Arthur J. Atkinson, Jr., MD

Art Atkinson (is) “ happy to report that the third edition of “Principles of Clinical Pharmacology” was published last month (see attached). It has been a two-year project that has kept me busy as lead editor and contributing author and I am relieved to finally cross it off my “to-do” list. This June, I spent a marvelous two weeks as a visiting professor at the Gaslini Hospital and Institute in Genoa, Italy, the largest children’s hospital in Europe. Later this week, I head to Bethesda, Maryland to help put on a two-day workshop on “Principles of Pharmacokinetic Data Analysis, Modeling and Simulation” at the National Institutes of Health. All this keeps me quite busy but I feel blessed to be able to still be professionally active.” Along the way, our outstanding classmate was appointed Corporate Vice President for Clinical Development and Medical Affairs at the Upjohn Company, has been President of the American Board of Clinical Pharmacology, President of the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and is a Master of the American College of Physicians. In their spare time, Art and Mary Jo, both avid sailors, have logged in over 10,000 nautical miles on his seafaring yacht, The Paradigm, that was featured in the Spring/Summer 2009 issue of Deerfield Magazine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are Deerfield Clubs in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on specific clubs and their sponsored events. 

Of course! Be sure to read the latest issue of From Albany Road in your email’s in-box for current news of what is happening on campus.
