The Annual Pritzker Day

The Harold G. Pritzker Memorial Lecture is an annual lecture delivered by some of the most celebrated names in Pathology and related subjects. It was first delivered in 1965, and has become one of the most distinguished lectures held in Toronto.

The lecture was created by colleagues in memory of Harold Goldsmith Pritzker, Pathologist-in-Chief at Mount Sinai Hospital from 1938 to 1963.  As of 2009, the lecture was renamed "The Annual Pritzker Day" to acknowledge the contribution of Harold's son, Kenneth Pritzker, who was Pathologist-in-Chief for 22 years, stepping down in July 2008.

The lecture takes place in the spring (May/June) of each year.
