Straight From The Dean

As a leader, I value your input and aspire to be transparent in my role as dean. To this end, I am committed to sharing facts as they become available and creating forums to hear your questions and concerns. To help build our mutual understanding, I want to invite you to a series of Dean’s Forums, where I will discuss key information about the School of Medicine – how it is structured, what makes it tick, and how this impacts your work.
