Daitch Family Scholarship


Jonathan Daitch, MD ’84, with Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, president and CEO, TJU and Jefferson Health System, at the 2014 SKMC commencement ceremony.

Bobbie and Jonathan Daitch, MD ’84, have endowed a scholarship within the Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University. The Daitch Family Scholarship will provide financial support to SKMC students. 

The Daitches are providing the endowment because of Jefferson’s impressive growth since Dr. Daitch’s graduation, including use of innovative technology in medical student education and expanded courses preparing senior students for internship. 

Dr. Daitch practices interventional pain management at Advanced Pain Management Specialists in Fort Myers, Fla. His medical practice was the first clinic devoted to the treatment of chronic and acute pain in Southwest Florida. He is also medical director of Park Center for Procedures ASC, Anesthesia Partners of SW Florida and Advanced Labs of SW Florida.

Dr. Daitch completed his anesthesia residency and fellowship at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, N.Y. Then he completed a three-year military obligation at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. He is board certified in pain management, pain medicine and anesthesia. Dr. Daitch is doing studies on marijuana, the “pill mill problem” and Suboxone, a medication approved for the treatment of opiate dependence. He lectures and teaches throughout the United States.

Dr. and Mrs. Daitch have three daughters, including Danielle, who received her medical degree from Jefferson in 2014. 

The Daitch endowment will benefit SKMC students in perpetuity.
