The COM seeks an outstanding MD or MD/PhD clinician with substantial leadership experience, a record of building research, and the ability to sustain partnerships that advance the academic, research, and clinical missions of the Department. The successful candidate will be an accomplished leader who understands current trends in healthcare and medical education, wants to make an impact on medical training, and values the tripartite mission academic medical institutions promote. It is of the utmost importance that the Chair supports these missions as a visible, democratic, and collaborative leader who stands as an advocate for patients, learners, staff and faculty members within the Department, College of Medicine, and University as a whole.
