Celebrating the Life of Dr. Bunyad Haider


August 17, 2014

Dear Members of the NJMS Community:

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that Dr. Bunyad Haider, former Interim Chair of the Department of Medicine, former Director of Cardiology, and recently named Professor Emeritus of Medicine, passed away this morning.

Dr. Haider was a dedicated member of the NJMS community, helping to establish NJMS as a premier medical school and the cardiology program as one of the top training programs in the country.  He educated countless students, residents and fellows, and mentored generations of faculty.

Dr. Marc Klapholz, Chair of Medicine, described Dr. Haider as someone who “was a great friend who helped so many and who always generously provided guidance and support in our personal and professional lives.  He will be dearly missed and the loss of his wisdom and grace will be deeply felt.”

Funeral Services for Dr. Haider will take place on Tuesday, August 19, 2014 at 10:00 am, at the Barrett Funeral Home, 148 Dean Drive, Tenafly New Jersey, 07670.  Telephone 201-568-8043.  Website:  http://www.barrettfuneralhome.net/

Our deepest sympathy is extended to the family of Dr. Bunyad Haider.
