Carmen Green, M.D., has been appointed the new dean of the CUNY School of Medicine at The City College of New York (CCNY). Green will be the second dean of the medical school — the only public medical school in Manhattan — when she begins the position in October. She also will serve as the Anna and Irving Brodsky Medical Professor and Professor in CCNY’s Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership.
Green currently is a pain medicine physician and professor of anesthesiology with tenure within the U-M Department of Anesthesiology with joint appointments in obstetrics and gynecology (School of Medicine) and health management and policy (School of Public Health). She joined the department in clinical and academic roles in 1993 after completing both an anesthesiology residency and pain management fellowship at the University of Michigan.
Green's research agenda focuses on pain management outcomes, physician decision-making, access and quality of care, and the social determinants of health. She is also an expert in minority and women’s health, aging, and diversity in academic medicine.
“The CUNY School of Medicine at City College is one of our great contributions to New York society and I am thrilled that it is poised to benefit from the visionary leadership of Carmen Green,” said Vincent Boudreau, president of The City College, in a news advisory released by the school. “Dr. Green comes at a pivotal time in our national deliberations about public health and the need to serve the whole people. Her background positions the School of Medicine to be a critical voice in that conversation.”
