The School of Medicine recently welcomed a new docent as well as a returning docent.

Lawrence Dall, M.D., professor of medicine, who served as a senior docent at the School of Medicine from 1982 through 1998, will take over the Red 3 docent team while also serving a special role in the dean’s office working on special projects.

Emily Haury, M.D., a graduate of the School of Medicine’s Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency program and a former chief resident, has joined the School’s faculty as an assistant professor and docent for the Red 6 team.

The School will add Rebecca Pauly, M.D., as the new docent for the Blue 4 team beginning in September. Pauly will also have an additional role in the dean’s office working with faculty development.

After stepping down from his docent’s role, Dall served as a clinical professor of medicine and infectious disease at the School of Medicine and has been a clinical instructor at the Kansas City University School of Medicine and Biosciences. He has also recently served as physician group leader for IPC/Providence Medical Center and as associate medical director for Midwest Hospital Specialists in Kansas City.

During his previous tenure as a docent, Dall served in numerous clinical and academic roles. Among those many roles, he was chief of the section of infectious diseases and also served as the School’s chairman of the Council of Docents and was vice chair of academic affairs.

Haury received her M.D. from the University of Kansas School of Medicine after earning her bachelor’s at Goshen (Ind.) College. She completed her residency earlier this year at UMKC where she received numerous awards and honors for her work.

As a resident, Haury served on the Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency recruitment committee. She also served as a volunteer student physician at the KU School of Medicine’s JayDoc Free Clinic, and was a teaching assistant in the biology, chemistry and psychology departments at Goshen College.

Nurry Pirani, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, served as interim docent for the Red 6 team for the past year in addition to Green 4 docent. She will continue to serve as docent on her Green team.

Jennifer Bequette, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, previously served as the Blue 4 docent and as the Blue 1 docent. She will continue as docent for the Blue 1 team.
