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 educate students, physicians, and biomedical scholars and to provide a spectrum of comprehensive knowledge, research, patient care and service of the highest quality to the people of the state of Michigan and beyond.

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.
