Vicente and Guadalupe Anido Laboratory Medicine

WVU Department of Pathology established this award to honor a second year medical student who has achieved general academic excellence and promise in pathology. A monetary award is made along with a congratulatory letter from the Department of Pathology.

Dr. Vicente Anido was Clinical Laboratory Director of West Virginia University Hospital from 1967 – 1976. His wife Guadalupe established this award upon his retirement from WVU in honor of his devotion to our school and our medical students.

Dr. Anido was born in Spain and moved with his family to Havana Cuba as a child. He received his entire medical education and specialty training in Cuba. After the Castro takeover in Cuba, he immigrated to Miami, Florida in 1960. He came to WVU n 1963 as Assistant Professor of Pathology. He became Associate Director of the Clinical Laboratories at WVU in 1967 and Director in 1968. He held that position until 1976 when he retired from WVU and became Director of the Clinical Laboratories at the VA Hospital in Clarksburg, WV. He remained as Director there until 1984. After a brief illness, he died in 1985 at WVU Hospital.

Dr. Anido is remembered as a warm, welcoming, bright and very disciplined physician and educator. He was very interested in medical education and devoted to teaching medical students. He enjoyed his adopted country and West Virginia University. At the time of his retirement, WVU had a mandatory retirement policy, or he would have stayed as Director of the Laboratories. He was a devoted husband and father. The Anido Award carries the name of a devoted teacher and excellent clinician.
