Vivek Murthy, MD

By a vote of 51-43, the Senate confirmed Vivek Murthy, MD, as Surgeon General, with opponents arguing he was unqualified for the job, while supporters asserted that opposition to the nomination stemmed mostly from Murthy's past remarks on gun violence.

Murthy has solid academic credentials -- an undergraduate degree from Harvard and a medical degree and Master's in Business Administration from Yale.  Opponents, however, question his expertise in patient treatment, or disease research.  Said one opponent:  "Is Dr. Murthy a renowned expert in treating patients or researching disease? No, not at all.  Has he actually built a career teaching medicine or leading public health organizations? No, not yet. In fact, Dr. Murthy only completed his residency and medical training in 2006, only 8 years ago.”  He is currently an attending physician at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston and an instructor at Harvard Medical School.
