Jack Moncrief, Physician, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in internal medicine and nephrology.
When Dr. Moncrief was in high school, one of his advisors told him that he would never get into medical school due to his grades. Unsinkable in his motivation, Dr. Moncrief first earned a Bachelor of Science at Lamar State College in 1959 and earned an MD from the University of Texas in 1962. He continued with internships at the Receiving Hospital in Detroit and then with residencies in internal medicine at the University of Texas. Where he worked with a cardiologist who lamented that one of his patients was in need of a kidney doctor. Intrigued by the specialization, Dr. Moncrief decided to go into internal medicine and nephrology knowing that he could accomplish anything he set his mind to. Throughout the duration of Dr. Moncrief’s career, one highlight that stood out the most was when he developed and patented the Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis and The World Wide Spread. Emotionally, the highlight for Dr. Moncrief is when he did the first ever dialysis on a newborn who was born without kidneys, who is now a healthy, full-grown high school special education teacher.
In his career, he has taught and provided his medical skills at such places as the Moncrief-Popovich Research Institute, the Brackenridge Hospital, the University of Texas, the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center and Georgetown University. As an expert in dialysis, liver transplants, kidney transplants and pancreas plants, Dr. Moncrief has received many awards for his contributions. These accolades include a Physician of the Year Award, a Distinguished Physician Award and Dialysis Pioneering Awards.
