School Leadership

Medical School Organizational Chart

The integration of the Medical School and the nearby hospitals and health centers has been critical to the success of the University of Michigan’s academic medical center. Faculty, staff and students in the school have worked closely with colleagues throughout the U-M clinical enterprise to fulfill the school’s mission:

To transform health through bold and innovative education, discovery, and service.”

The senior leadership team of the Medical School establishes the strategy and priorities in fulfillment of the school's mission, working closely with the associate and assistant deans, the leaders of our departments, centers and institutes, and with the University administration. The senior leadership team oversees the administrative functions of Medical School Administration, and ensures coordination of initiatives that support the education, research and service elements of the tripartite mission.
