After internal medicine and chief medical residency at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston (1959-62), he received his research training at the Cardiovascular Research Institute, UCSF with Jay A. Nadel and Julius H. Comroe, Jr., (1962-65) and then joined the faculty of Harvard Medical School at Children’s Hospital in 1965 where he set up a new pulmonary laboratory for Dr. Alexander Nadas to study the pulmonary problems of children with congenital heart disease.
