Friends and colleagues gathered Monday night to wish Henri Cuénoud well on the occasion of his retirement. Dr. Cuénoud joined the Department of Medicine in 1983. He is associate professor of medicine and pathology at UMMS and cardiovascular pathologist at UMass Memorial Medical Center.

His recent focus was centered on teaching, and he served as director, co-director or clinical advisor for several academic courses. Immensely popular with students, Cuénoud was presented with the Outstanding Medical Educator Award annually for the past 11 years, and in 2011 was chosen by second-year medical students to be the keynote speaker at their Second Year Oath Ceremony.

Cuénoud received his medical degree from the University of Geneva Medical School in Switzerland. After a year of research at UMMS with faculty members Guido Majno, MD, and Isabelle Joris, PhD, Cuénoud completed his residency training in internal medicine at Geneva University Hospital and a cardiology fellowship at UMMS. A five-year clinician-scientist award from the American Heart Association allowed him to finish his training in cardiovascular pathology and continue his research with his mentors at UMMS.
