An integral part of Case Western Reserve University School of Law's Law-Medicine Center, The Oliver C.

Schroeder, Jr. Scholar-in-Residence was established in 1986 with generous gifts from law school alumni, friends, and colleagues of Professor Oliver Schroeder in recognition of his dedicated service at the School of Law. During his 38 years on the law faculty, Professor Schroeder served as a professor and acting dean, and co-founded the School's Law-Medicine Center. Professor Schroeder was director of the Center from its inception until 1986 when he retired and was named Professor Emeritus.
Speaker Information
Arnold S. Relman, M.D.
Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of the New England Journal of Medicine
Professor Emeritus of Medicine and of Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School


Arnold S. RelmanArnold S. Relman graduated from Cornell University in 1943 with Distinction in Philosophy and received his M.D. from Columbia University in 1946. He served an internship and residency at the Yale-New Haven Hospital, where he began his research career in nephrology and electrolyte and acid-base balance. He then went on to become a National Research Council Fellow in the Medical Sciences at Boston University School of Medicine.

Dr. Relman joined the BU faculty in 1951, achieved the rank of Professor of Medicine in 1961 and taught there until 1968. Dr. Relman was Editor of the Journal of Clinical Investigation (1962-67), after which he became the Conrad Wesselhoeft Professor of Medicine at the Boston City Hospital. From 1968 to 1977, he was the Frank Wister Thomas Professor of Medicine and Chairman of the Department of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. In 1977, Dr. Relman was appointed Editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, Professor of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School and Senior Physician at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. He stepped down from the journal in 1991 and from Harvard Medical School in 1993.

Over a period of nearly 30 years he published numerous original research and clinical studies as well as textbook chapters and monographs on these subjects. In 1966 and 1974, he was the co-editor, with F. J. Ingelfinger and M. Finland, of two volumes of Controversy in Internal Medicine. In recent years he became interested in the health care system and has written widely on the economic, ethical, legal and social aspects of health care. His articles on the "medical-industrial complex" have been widely read.

Dr. Relman is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, a former President of the American Federation for Clinical Research, the American Society of Clinical Investigation, and the Association of American Physicians. He has been a member of the American Board of Internal Medicine, as well as of the Board of Directors of the Hastings Center for Bioethics. He is also a Master of the American College of Physicians and a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of London. Dr. Relman is a Trustee of Columbia University emeritus, and is a former trustee of the Boston University and University of Pennsylvania Medical Centers.
