Andrew Weinfeld dies headed medical society

December 23, 1990

Andrew P. Weinfeld, past president of the Maryland Society of Internal Medicine, died yesterday of cancer at his residence in Homeland.

Dr. Weinfeld, who was 50, was born in Newark, N.J., and graduated from Rutgers University.

He came to Baltimore in 1962 to attend the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine School. Following an internship and residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital, he began a fellowship there which was interrupted when he served 2 1/2 years as a major in the U.S. Army in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Dr. Weinfeld later completed his fellowship in nephrology -- the branch of medicine dealing with the kidneys -- at Harvard Medical School. In 1973, he returned to Baltimore and to the private practice of internal medicine, joining the staffs of Johns Hopkins Hospital, Sinai Hospital and Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

He was involved in the Maryland Society of Internal Medicine as secretary-treasurer, vice president, president and chairman of the Third Party Carriers Committee. Under his presidency in 1982, the society received the Component Society of the Year Award from the American Society of Internal Medicine.

From 1985 to 1987, he chaired the Professional Liability Management Committee of the American Society of Internal Medicine. In 1987, he was chosen as a recipient of the American Society of Internal Medicine Special Recognition Award.

In addition to his wife of 23 years, the former Ann Schwartzman, Dr. Weinfeld is survived by two sons, Jonathan M. Weinfeld and Michael J. Weinfeld, both of Baltimore; his mother, Ruth C. Weinfeld, and his brother, Leonard F. Weinfeld, both of Union, N.J.

Services for Dr. Weinfeld will be private.
