"All of us want to leave an imprint on the world." Profound words spoken by Carole Raisbeck describe a lifelong goal of her late husband, Clifford C. Raisbeck Jr., MD, who received his bachelor's degree, medical degree, and residency training at Northwestern in the 1950s and 60s. Carole was present at the formal investiture of Wellington K. Hsu, MD, as the Clifford Raisbeck, MD, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery.
The Raisbeck Professorship was generously endowed by Dr. Raisbeck in 1995 to sustain excellence in education and research in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and to support the work of a promising faculty member like Dr. Hsu.
"When I asked Cliff why he decided to endow this professorship, he said that he wanted to leave a fingerprint at the school that he loved so much," said Carole.
