Following lunch and the general session, students dispersed into discussion groups with the 40 faculty members who attended. The event was hosted by the JMC Student Council in cooperation with the dean's office.
Hospitals represented were: Bryn Mawr Hospital, Episcopal Hospital, Geisinger Medical Center, Lankenau Hospital, Latrobe, Medical Center of Delaware, Methodist Hospital, and Wilmington Veterans Administration Hospital.
Architectural landscape watercolors and clay monoprints by William F. Renzulli, MD, JMC '65, are on exhibit on the sixth floor of the Scott Building and at Eakins Gallery, JAH, through the summer.
Currently the medical staff president at Union Hospital of Cecil County, Maryland, the successful internist still finds spare moments to practice his art in a barn converted to a studio on his 18-acre family farm in Elkton, Maryland.
Widely known for precise, transparent watercolors of architectural subjects, including numerous familiar Philadelphia landmarks and scenes, Dr. Renzulli recently began working with the freer medium of clay monoprints.
