121 Millennium - A Marquis Who’s Who Magazine EDUCATION During his tenure, he specialized in clinical anesthesiology, patient care, and magnetic resonance-based preclinical neuroscience. Dr. Litt was an assistant professor of anesthesia at Stanford University’s School of Medicine from 1982 to 1983 and an assistant professor of physics at Michigan State University from 1974 to 1977. His academic career began in 1971 as a Rockefeller University postdoctoral research assistant, working within a Columbia-CERN-Rockefeller Storage Ring high energy physics research collaboration in Geneva, Switzerland. After graduating from Columbia College in New York in 1963, he studied at Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, where, in 1971, he received a PhD in physics. Dr. Litt’s MD degree was obtained in 1979 at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine. In 1982, two years after obtaining his California medical license, he completed his anesthesia residency at the University of California San Francisco. His board certification in anesthesiology was achieved in 1983. Dr. Litt’s research stemmed from his expertise in magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and imaging (MRI). From 1985 until his retirement in 2011, he was a funded National Institutes of Health (NIH) Principal Investigator. He served on numerous research committees for the NIH and academic communities. Dedicated to his profession, Dr. Litt remains affiliated with several academic medical organizations, including The American Society of Anesthesiologists, The International Anesthesia Research Society, The Association of University Anesthesiologists and The American College of Physicians. Inspired by many brilliant professors, colleagues and mentors, Dr. Litt naturally sought and built a career as an educator. In the coming years, he looks forward to completing a nonfiction memoir that chronicles his time and experiences as an anesthesiologist. With over five decades of experience, Dr. Lawrence Litt is a proven expert in the fields of medicine and medical education. He retired as an emeritus professor in 2011 after 28 years on the University of California San Francisco’s medical school faculty, where he began as an assistant professor and anesthesiologist.
