logo editThomas S. Durant, MD (1928-2001) spent his life chasing catastrophe and chaos in some of the world’s most forsaken and forlorn spots. From his service as chief public health advisor in Saigon from 1966 to 1968, to a trip to Honduras in 2001 to comfort the victims of Hurricane Mitch, Dr. Durant, always found in his trademark Red Sox cap, was a beacon of hope during virtually every international humanitarian crisis in recent decades.

A lifelong resident of Dorchester, Dr. Durant graduated from Boston College, received his medical degree from Georgetown University, and completed his training in obstetrics and gynecology at Boston City Hospital. After his service in Vietnam, he joined Mass General in 1968 as a clinician and assistant director, a role he continued until his death in 2001.

Continuing his legacy and open to MGH health care professionals and staff, the Thomas S. Durant, MD Fellowship for Refugee Medicine seeks to honor and celebrate the life, spirit, humor, passion, joy, and the legacy of this extraordinary humanitarian by aiding victims of war, famine, and disaster.
