Richard J. Macchia, MD, FACS, of the Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute at Cleveland Clinic Florida, was awarded the American Urological Association's Distinguished Contribution Award at its annual meeting in San Diego on May 7, 2013.
Dr. Macchia's career-long association with NYAM began with attending urology meetings here when he was a resident. He was awarded the Ferdinand C. Valentine Fellowship for 1975-76 by the Section on Urology. He then became a member of the Advisory Board of the NYAM Section on Urology, and then its chair. He also chaired the Edwin Beer Award committee for one year. Finally, he successfully nominated Dr. Keith Waterhouse for the Ferdinand C. Valentine Medal for Career Achievement.
Dr. Macchia says that from 1971 through 2009, when he moved to Cleveland Clinic Florida, he "attended virtually every urology meeting at NYAM and, as chair and program director, insisted my residents do likewise. I also insisted that every resident submit a research paper to the residents essay contest every year."
Dr. Macchia is also a SUNY Distinguished Teaching professor and Chairman Emeritus of the Department of Urology at SUNY Downstate College of Medicine, and Affiliate Professor of Biomedical Science at the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine of Florida Atlantic University.
