Corcoran Lecture


         Each autumn, the Indiana University School of Medicine-Evansville sponsors a lecture series and luncheon featuring a nationally prominent medical speaker whose expertise in an area of medical specialty and/or biomedical research is internationally recognized. The annual Patrick J.V. and Margaret B. Corcoran Lecture is an endowed lectureship honoring the memory of the founding director of the southwestern regional campus, the IU School of Medicine-Evansville. Patrick J.V. Corcoran, M.D., was a professor of medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine and assistant dean from 1971 to 1983. His wife, Margaret B. Corcoran, was a nurse and anesthetist. The lecture and luncheon are open to friends, members of the medical/health care community, biomedical and nutritional professionals, medical students and Bachelor/Medical Degree undergraduate students at the University of Evansville and University of Southern Indiana, the host campus for IUSM-Evansville. The guest speaker usually also presents an afternoon session for students and an evening lecture open to the public, both on the USI campus.

          Dr. and Mrs. Corcoran’s four daughters represent their late parents at the October lecture and include Monica Corcoran, Sheila Corcoran, Ellen Corcoran Hegeman, all of Evansville, and Val Corcoran Wenzler, M.D., of Zionsville. The Patrick J.V. Corcoran Scholarship also supports medical student education at the Evansville Center of IUSM.
