Feb. 1st marks the 55th anniversary of James W. Pate, M.D. as an active faculty member of the College of Medicine. Dr. Pate has participated in many of the dramatic changes in UTCHS and in local and national teaching, training, research, and health care delivery.
He still participates in student and resident conferences and lectures on a regular basis, several times a week. ( He never learned to play golf so this is his favorite past-time.)
