Patrick John Conte Jr., MD, PhD, Chief of Nuclear Medicine at St. Joseph University Medical Center, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, teaching, and leadership.
Dr. Conte grew up in a funeral home where he often helped his father with daily tasks. Though he enjoyed the aspect of helping others during their time of need, he knew that he would rather help others avoid suffering entirely, if possible. With that in mind, he enrolled at the Stritch School of Medicine of Loyola University. In 1966, he had successfully earned an MD degree.
By 1971, Dr. Conte had completed his required internship, residency, and fellowship, all of which he served at the State University of New York Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York. During those years, he was able to explore radiology and nuclear medicine. He found a passion for each of these medical fields, which drove his decision to eventually accept a position as Chairman of the Medical Imaging Department at St. Michael’s Medical Center in 1993 overseeing Diagnostic Radiology, Nuclear Medicine and Visceral Ultrasonography. In 2004, he was appointed chief of nuclear medicine and senior radiology attending at Saint Joseph University Medical Center, a position he continues to hold today.
Outside of his primary endeavors, Dr. Conte has found success as an author. Some of his most notable works include, “Converging Paths of Ancient Ayurveda and Modern Medicine,” “Mysteries of Life, Death and Beyond,” and Revelations of the Ancient Past.” He is also the radiological editor for the medical text, “Effective Medical Imaging.” He has additionally published many scientific papers in various radiological and medical journals. In light of his many accomplishments, Dr. Conte has earned a Silver Medal Award for his exhibit at the Society of Nuclear Medicine. In his free time, he enjoys writing, studying astronomy, and gardening. As a further testament to his success, he is featured in the 25th edition of Who’s Who in the East.
