Georges Maurice Debove (1913)


French internist, pathologist, and author of numerous articles on a wide array of subjects. He was an early advocate of social hygiene, and known for his work dealing with health issues that included alcoholism and tuberculosis. With internist Charles Achard, he published a nine volume medical manual, Manuel de médecine (1893-1897), and with Achard and Joseph Castaigne, he was co-author of works involving diseases of the internal organs.

In 1869 he received his internship in Paris, followed by agrégation in 1878. From 1890 to 1900, he served as a professor to the Faculté de Médecine in Paris (second chair of medical pathology). In 1901 he was appointed second chair of clinical medicine at the Hôpital de la Charité.

In 1893 he became a member of the Académie de Médecine, serving as its secrétaire perpétuel from 1913 to 1920. Following the death of Paul Brouardel in 1906, he became dean of the Faculté de Médecine.

He died on 19 November 1920 in Paris, aged 75.
