Douglas T. Harryman II/DePuy Endowed Chair in Shoulder Research
The Douglas T. Harryman II/DePuy Endowed Chair in Shoulder Research was established as a professorship in 1998 to enhance the University of Washington’s ability to attract and retain distinguished faculty in shoulder research in the Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine.
Originally, the endowment was named in honor of E. A. Codman, the first great American shoulder surgeon, who also popularized the “end result idea” — the beginning of research into patient outcomes. It also was named after DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a principal donor to the endowment.
On Dec. 24, 1999, an esteemed faculty member in UW Medicine’s Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine passed away. Douglas T. Harryman II, M.D., was a specialist in shoulder arthroscopy and research who taught residents and provided compassionate care to his patients. He also was the first holder of the E. A. Codman/DePuy Orthopaedics Professorship in Shoulder Research.
In light of Dr. Harryman’s accomplishments, the name of the endowment was changed to the Douglas T. Harryman II/DePuy Orthopaedics Professorship in Shoulder Research in 2000. The professorship was upgraded to a chair in 2003.
