Dana W. Atchley

  • The Changing Physician

    A Connecticut Yankee who took his M.D. at Johns Hopkins in 1915, DANA W. ATCHLEY has made a distinctive place for himself in medicine by blending his three major interests in research, teaching, and practice. From 1919 to 1921 he did research in chemistry at his alma mater; he later established one of the first clinics for the study of hypertension; and for going on three decades he has been Professor of Clinical Medicine at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia, and Attending Physician at the Presbyterian Hospital.
