Arthur Wagner, executive director of Coney Island Hospital, let Standing O know that the American College of Physicians bestowed its “Mastership” designation on Dr. Terence Brady, the hospital’s associate chief medical officer.
Dr. Brady was selected because of his integrity, eminence in practice or in medical research, and other attainments in science or in the art of medicine. He has amply demonstrated his eminence in practice, leadership, and in medical research.
Dr. Brady joins fellow physicians Dr. John Maese, chief medical officer, and Dr. Paul Gitman of quality management.
These three doctors are among only 785 physicians worldwide to hold this distinction.
“I am honored to receive this national recognition by the American College of Physicians,” said Dr. Brady. “This designation recognizes individuals for their achievements and dedication to the field of medicine.”
“It is an accomplishment for an individual to earn Mastership from the American College of Physicians, but for an institution to have three physicians earn this designation is remarkable,” said Wagner, who is also senior veep of the Southern Brooklyn and Staten Island Health Care Network.
“Dr. Brady is very deserving of such a high honor by the American College of Physicians,” added fellow Master, Dr. Maese. “Masters are recognized for excellence and for their significant contributions to medicine, and I am proud to have Dr. Brady’s service here at Coney Island Hospital.”
