NSU Medical School Professor Emeritus Passes Away

On Jul. 11, Nova Southeastern University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and the osteopathic medical profession lost a beloved colleague and friend when Arthur Snyder, D.O., passed away following a prolonged illness.

In 1981, Snyder joined the faculty of Southeastern College of Osteopathic Medicine (the precursor to NSU-COM), serving as assistant professor in the Department of Osteopathic Principles and Practice. In 1984, he was promoted to the position of chairman and professor within the OPP department, where he taught the nuances of osteopathic manipulative medicine to several thousand students.

In October 1999, Snyder received the college’s ultimate tribute when he was designated as a professor emeritus for his lifelong dedication to the community, his students, and the osteopathic profession. Four years later, another major honor came his way when he received the college’s Alumni Association Living Tribute Award.

After spending 25 years as a College of Osteopathic Medicine faculty member―and more than six decades working in the osteopathic profession―Snyder officially retired from the college on February 1, 2006. Fortunately, his rich osteopathic legacy lives on in his son Samuel Snyder, D.O., who serves as chair of the college’s Department of Internal Medicine.
