Thomas Toth, M.D., ’86 , director and founder of the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) In Vitro Fertilization Unit and the Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility Fellowship Training Program at MGH, will receive the School of Medicine’s 2013 E. Grey Dimond, M.D., Take Wing Award during the annual Take Wing Lecture at noon on May 23 in Theater A of the SOM.
Toth is an associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive biology at Harvard Medical School. An expert in reproductive endocrinology, he has made a career of helping couples with seemingly little or no hope of becoming pregnant to achieve their dream of having children. He joined MGH and the faculty of Harvard Medical School in 1992, immediately after completing his residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and MGH and a fellowship at the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The National Institutes of Health and philanthropy have funded much of his extensive research in the field of assisted reproduction. He has been recognized by Boston Magazine as the top doctor for women in infertility and has also received the 2002 UMKC School of Medicine Alumni Achievement Award.
