Surgeon, Educator, Innovator: Celebration of a Chairman’s Leadership

June 14, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm






















After 42 years at the University of Pittsburgh, 16 of which were as Chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology, Dr. Jonas T. Johnson is stepping down. But make no mistake, he’s not retiring. If anything, he’s reinventing himself.

As much as he has loved being in the operating room, where he has helped patients and trained the next generation of physicians, Dr. Johnson felt an obligation to step down.

Once his successor is hired, Dr. Johnson plans to focus on helping run the UPMC Head & Neck Cancer Survivorship Clinic, where he hopes to raise awareness and understanding about survivorship among his colleagues as well as treat patient side effects more effectively.

That legacy includes a career spent on the care of people with head and neck tumors, a rank of Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and joint appointments in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and Department of Communication Science and Disorders in the School of Health and Rehabilitative Sciences. Dr. Johnson is also a Past President of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (2003), the American Head and Neck Society (2004), and the Triologic Society (2014).

This event will benefit the Survivorship Clinic.
