Meet the Dean

I am very pleased to welcome you to the College of Medicine at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.

Since I arrived in Memphis in October 2018, I have been constantly amazed by the strength of our college in each of the four facets of our mission – clinical care, education, research, and community outreach. I am committed to seeing the UTHSC College of Medicine continue to advance in each of these areas.

We have accomplished much in a short time. We have recruited top-tier clinical and research faculty, made adjustments in leadership to better serve the college, received accreditation for key programs, secured major funding for research, improved curriculum, and increased attention to the personal and financial well-being of our students.
