OLDEST PRACTICING DOCTOR

OLDEST PRACTICING DOCTOR

 Oldest Practicing Doctor Shows No Signs of Slowing Down⁠ ⁠ In the same year that Howard Tucker, MD, began practicing neurology, the average loaf of bread cost 13¢, the microwave oven became commercially available, and Jackie Robinson took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers as the first Black person to play Major League Baseball.⁠ ⁠ Since 1947, Tucker has witnessed major changes in healthcare, from President Harry S. Truman proposing a national healthcare plan to Congress to the current day, when patients carry their digital records around with them.⁠ ⁠ Not content with just a medical degree, at the age of 67, Tucker attended Cleveland State University Cleveland Marshall College of Law. In 1989, he received his Juris Doctor degree and passed the Ohio bar examination.⁠ ⁠ And as if that weren't enough career accomplishments, Guinness World Records dubbed him the world's oldest practicing doctor at 98 years and 231 days. Tucker continues to practice into his 100th year.⁠ ⁠ ⁠
