Biography of Maurice Levine, M.D.

A native Cincinnatian, Dr. Levine earned his undergraduate and master's degrees from the University of Cincinnati and his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University, where he served residencies. He returned to UC's psychiatry department before doing further training and becoming a faculty member at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis. Levine was one of the first psychoanalytically trained psychiatrists in the country to be appointed as a department chair. As well as being deeply involved in local and national professional activities, he was also committed to the Cincinnati community. He was the first administrator at the former Cincinnati General Hospital (now University Hospital) to desegregate his wards and the first to appoint a black resident. His determination to keep psychiatry in the mainstream of daily life made Cincinnati a model in the field of community psychiatry.
