It is little wonder that a dedicated and compassionate doctor like Stephen W. Nicholas has been selected four times by his peers as one of the Best Doctors in America. A 1975 graduate of the UW Department of Zoology, Dr. Nicholas earned his medical degree from the University of Colorado, after which he moved to New York City for postgraduate training. He fell in love with pediatric medicine and went on to become chief resident and clinical fellow at Harlem Hospital in New York. Over most of the past 20 years, he has been associated with the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University where today he is an associate professor of Clinical Pediatrics. In 1989, he helped establish the Pediatric AIDS Clinic at Incarnation Children’s Center, where he is executive director. Among Dr. Nicholas’s current positions, he is chairman of New York State’s Committee for the Care of HIV-Infected Children and Adolescents for which he has worked tirelessly. In 1998, he was honored with Columbia University’s Claire Lucille-Pace Humanitarian of the Year Award.
