Share |

Dr. David T. Rowlands, Jr. was Chair of the Department of Pathology for the Morsani College of Medicine from 1982 to 1991. During those years he also served as Chair of Pathology at All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg from 1985 to 1990 and Chief of Pathology at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute from 1987 to 1989 before assuming the title of Emeritus Professor in 1991. While in retirement, Dr. Rowlands realized he missed teaching and joined the faculty at the American University of the Caribbean from 1995 to 2002 where he served as Clinical Dean from 1995 to 1997. He eventually returned to the Morsani College of Medicine as an adjunct instructor and Director of the undergraduate teaching program in Pathology until 2007. 

Prior to joining the University of South Florida, he attended the University of Pennsylvania and Penn’s School of Medicine. Following medical school, his residency in Pathology led him to Cincinnati, where he met and married his wife of 58 years, Gwendolyn York. After completing residency, he served in the Navy in Key West and was appointed Chief Casualty Officer for the Bay of Pigs.

Following his passing, the Morsani College of Medicine has established the Dr. David Rowlands Medical Student Scholarship Fund to recognize Dr. Rowlands’ achievements and role as a longstanding and dedicated medical educator.

We invite those that have been impacted by Dr. Rowlands to help memorialize him by making a gift that will help support future students who exemplify Dr. Rowlands’ values and qualities.
