Robert Stanley Blacklow, M.D.
Senior Lecturer on Social Medicine

Dr. Blacklow is president emeritus of the Northeast Ohio Medical University (formerly the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine) and professor of community health sciences there. His interests and writings include the relationships between academic health centers and their regional departments of health, contemporary issues in health sciences education, access to health professions careers by the social and economically disadvantaged, and ways in which physicians and their patients can communicate more effectively with each other. He is currently working on a longitudinal study of the outcome of the Harvard Health Careers Summer Program—an enhancement program to the health professions for the socially and economically disadvantaged offered jointly by the Harvard Summer School and HMS in the late 1960s and 1970s. He also serves as a faculty adviser to the HMS Medical Clinical Casebook Project and is a member of the Senior Common Room in Lowell House at Harvard College.
