Community Health Consultant
Bud Beck spent seven and a half glorious years at the University of Michigan
He then took his MD degree to New York City and the Columbia Medical division at Bellevue Hospital for two years.
Subsequent years lead to the Beth Israel in Boston for residency, an MGH Harvard fellowship and ultimately an Assistant Professorship at Harvard. He became the Chief of the Hemodialysis Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. Research there included studies in decision analysis and hyperalimentation of the critically ill.
A professorship and Chief of Clinical Nephrology at UCSD was followed by 10 years practice in nephrology. He then served as executive vice president and Chief Medical Officer at Scripps Health.
A great joy has been working with the underserved through board membership and chairing the 211 San Diego Board; this organization helps meet the socio-economic needs in San Diego.
