Donald Baim, renowned cardiologist, medical device executive, and former Harvard Medical School professor, died on Friday (Nov. 6) at the age of 60, following surgery to treat a form of cancer.

Baim, who came to Harvard Medical School in 1981, established the interventional cardiology program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The program specializes in training surgeons to use new medical devices, including stents. In 2000, Baim moved on to Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Memorial services are set for Monday (Nov. 16) in Canton, Mass.
