THE FATHER OF OUR PROGRAM
JOHN DAVID ROSIN, M.D.

John (Jack for his friends) David Rosin was born on June 26, 1918 in South Bend, Indiana and was raised in Washington, D.C. through high school. He attended his undergraduate studies at Johns Hopkins University from 1938-1942, then Medical School at University of Maryland and Internship at University Hospital. During WW2 Dr. Rosin served his country by joining the Army Medical Corps in the European front, where he spent three years from 1943-1945.  After the resolution of the war Dr. Rosin completed his postgraduate education in the General Surgery Residency at Church and Lutheran Hospitals; then he was accepted for the Proctology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic 1949-1952.

Upon completion of his Fellowship, Dr. Rosin was offered a position as a member of the Surgical Staff at Mayo Clinic.  He reluctantly declined to be close to his mother here in Baltimore and joined Dr. Edwards in his practice.  Upon his return, his mother moved to Florida, and the decision was made that friends should not be associated together.  He was devastated, but for our luck, he still remained here in Baltimore.  At that time, Dr. Rosin was the only trained and certified Colon and Rectal Surgeon in Maryland.

Dr. Rosin joined the Hospital for Women of Maryland in 1953 and became a member of GBMC Medical Staff in 1965.  A well-known Baltimore Surgeon, Dr. Rosin was the Founder and Director of the Colon and Rectal Surgery Residency Program at GBMC.

On January 3, 1990, the Greater Baltimore Medical Center lost a revered colleague, John David Rosin, M.D.

A Memorial Lecture is presented in his memory in May of each year and is attended by a large number of Surgeons who had the privilege to train at the GBMC Colon and Rectal Surgery Residency, as well as many other Physicians from the Greater Baltimore area.

Mentors: Dr. Monte Edwards (only surgeon at that time to limit his practice to Colorectal Surgery) and Dr. Louis A. Buie, Chief Department of Proctology at Mayo Clinic.  Famous saying to his Fellows: "Anorectal surgery is not difficult, but it has to be done right the first time the patient uses that hole" (Dr. Claude Dixon).
