John Kemp, MD

After 36 years of distinguished service, Dr. John Kemp has retired from the University of Iowa Department of Pathology. His work impacted all aspects of the department (clinical, research, and education) and the broader hospital as well.  He served in multiple leadership positions in the department including Director of Clinical Laboratories.  He also was co-course director of the Pathogenesis course for graduate students.  Most recently, he worked with hospital administration to expand and improve the medical director program.  His passionate push for high quality clinical care, education and research has had a lasting impact on all missions of the department, and we wish him a very happy and well-earned retirement.
