Dr. George T. Harrell Jr.

Dr. George T. Harrell Jr., founding dean of the medical colleges at both the University of Florida and Pennsylvania State University, died Thursday at Duke University Hospital in Durham, N.C. He was 91.

Memorial services at UF will be announced at a later date.

Dr. Harrell, who was well-known for his innovative methods of training medical students, came to UF in 1954 to design and develop the College of Medicine within the J. Hillis Miller Health Center that Harrell founded, now named the UF Health Science Center.

Dr. Harrell began the medical school with a $5 million state appropriation. The colleges of Medicine and Nursing opened in 1956.

In Dr. Harrell's 10 years at UF, he emphasized the importance of training physicians to understand and care for the entire patient and advocated the concept of training students in small groups.

"He was a visionary in the field of medical education, " said Dr. Mark V. Barrow Sr., a retired cardiologist and member of UF's medical college's first graduating class. "He wanted to turn out a complete physician who had compassion and was a human being as well as a technical person."

He also created the first-ever departments of humanities, family and community medicine, and behavior science in a medical school.

Medical students now learn diagnosis and communication skills from trained actors who serve as model patients at the Harrell Professional Development and Assessment Center.

Harrell resigned from UF in 1964, saying that administrative problems and red tape at the state level had grown too oppressive, and became founding dean and a vice president for medical sciences at Milton S. Hershey's Medical Center at Pennsylvania State University, retiring in 1973.

After retirement, Dr. Harrell wrote articles on the lives of Lady Osler and Sir William Osler, founding chairman of medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an early leader of American medical education.

Dr. Harrell wrote several articles and books, including "Planning Medical Center Facilities, " and became an international consultant on developing medical schools and hospitals. He also received international recognition for his published research on Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever during the 1940s.

"Harrell's goal of educating the health team to care for patients in their communities has timeless significance, " said Dr. Robert T. Watson, a medical student during Dr. Harrell's tenure as dean and now UF's senior associate dean for education affairs. "Of all the things I remember about Dr. Harrell, what stands out in my mind is his kindness."

One of UF's first medical graduates, Dr. Jean Bennett, said her practice as a pediatrician in Clearwater is influenced every day by the philosophies of Dr. Harrell.

"Most of all, I remember him telling us we should pay attention to every aspect of the patient's medical, social and emotional needs, and that we should develop the ability as physicians to serve those needs, " said Bennett.

Dr. Harrell was born in Washington, D.C. He received his medical degree at Duke University, which named him a distinguished alumnus in 1969. Dr. Harrell received a presidential medal and distinguished service award from UF, and received the Association of American Medical Colleges Abraham Flexner Award for Distinguished Service to Medical Education, the Society for Health and Human Values Award and a Mastership of the American College of Physicians.

Dr. Harrell was preceded in death by his wife, Janet Harrell.

Survivors include two sons, George Thomas Harrell III of Jacksonville and Robert Griffin Harrell of Gainesville; and four grandchildren, including Dr. Heather Harrell, a clinical assistant professor of medicine at UF.

Expressions of sympathy may be made as donations to the George T. Harrell Library at the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pa., or to the George Harrell Professional Development and Assessment Center at UF's College of Medicine in Gainesville.
