Associate & Assistant Deans

From admitting graduate and medical students, to guiding the careers of the faculty from appointment to promotion, as well as ensuring we conduct our research, teaching and clinical care with the highest ethical standards, the associate and assistant deans of the Medical School are appointed to manage specific aspects of the administration of the Medical School and are available to guide and support our faculty, staff, students and trainees.

These highly regarded leaders are appointed through a careful process that culminates in the approval of the University’s Board of Regents.
