The Marvin Glicklich Lectureship

The Glicklich Lectureship was created to honor Dr. Marvin Glicklich, who established pediatric surgery as a specialty in Milwaukee and founded the pediatric general surgery program at Children’s Hospital and the Medical College of Wisconsin. His contributions reflect a commitment to the clinical care of infants and children with surgical problems and to the training of surgeons and other health care professionals in this discipline.
