Harvard-educated doctor named Joint Commission chief
Dr. Mark R. Chassin (left) of Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, a Harvard-educated doctor and former commissioner of the New York State Department of Health, has been named president of The Joint Commission, a body that accredits US healthcare organizations.
Chassin graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Medical School and received a master's degree in public policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. He also holds a master's degree in public health from the University of California at Los Angeles.
Chassin succeeds Dr. Dennis S. O'Leary, who will conclude 21 years as president of the commission at the end of the year. O'Leary earned his bachelor's degree at Harvard.
