Dr. Rosanne Granieri Retires After 26 Years

Rosanne Granieri, MD, retired in December 2015 after serving the Division of General Internal Medicine for 26 years. Dr. Granieri joined us in 1989 as an assistant professor of medicine. She was promoted to associate professor of medicine in 1996 and to full professor in 2004. Dr. Granieri was a leading clinician-educator within the Division, as well as an outstanding mentor and clinician.


In 1995, Dr. Granieri was appointed co-director of the Primary Care Residency Training Program and led the initial development of the ambulatory curriculum, now in place for the entire internal medicine housestaff. In 1999, she began serving as director of the Clinician-Educator Track for the Division of General Internal Medicine Fellowship Program. In this role, she led the development of one of our most essential faculty development programs, the Master of Science in Medical Education Program within the Institute for Clinical Research Education, for which she served as program director from 1999 until her retirement.


Dr. Granieri was instrumental in developing popular educational activities for our housestaff, including the Medical Wheel, the Clinical Vignette Project, the Case of the Week series, and the Week-in-Review report. For almost every year from 1994 on, she received a major teaching award or recognition by the Department of Medicine or the University, such as the Distinguished Teaching Award from Internal Medicine Residents, which she received several times, and the Excellence in Teaching Award from the ICRE. Dr. Granieri was also an extremely active member of the Academy of Master Educators (AME) and was the co-chair of the AME Faculty Development and Mentoring Task Force.


Dr. Granieri’s accomplishments and contributions to the Division and the University are many, and we wish her a happy, healthy, well-deserved retirement.
