WALTHAM – Dr. David A. Rosman, a board-certified radiologist, associate chairman at Massachusetts General Hospital, was elected president of the Massachusetts Medical Society at the organization’s annual meeting, held virtually May 30.

Rosman, a resident of Jamaica Plain, will serve a one-year term as the top officer of the medical society, the statewide professional association of physicians and medical students with more than 25,000 members.

Rosman, 44, is the youngest president in the 239-year history of the organization.

Rosman is committed to global health and to addressing disparities in health care. He started the first-ever radiology residency in Rwanda. Rosman wrote the curriculum and established the program while practicing radiology and living in Rwanda with his family for two years. He and his family return annually to teach – he in radiology and his wife, Dr. Samantha Rosman, in pediatrics.

“Having the opportunity to lead what I believe is the greatest medical society in the world is certainly one of the great honors of my lifetime,” Rosman said. “The MMS is hard at work - determined to improve the practice of medicine, the health of the commonwealth and eliminate health care disparities, yet this pandemic has laid ever more bare the fact that while we are all in the same storm, we are in very different boats. Addressing the many challenges that face our patients, our practices and communities as a direct or indirect result of the pandemic will continue to be a top priority.”

A member of the Massachusetts Medical Society since he was a medical student in 1998, Rosman has served the medical society in several capacities. He is a member of the organization’s American Medical Association (AMA) delegation and has served as a member of the board of trustees and on numerous committees. Rosman also served on the board of trustees of the AMA and as a Delegate to the AMA from the American College of Radiology (ACR).

Rosman is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He earned a BA from Dartmouth College, and an MBA in health care, business, and public policy from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
