Dec. 8 presentation to highlight a decade of change in the Medical School

November 24, 2015  //  FOUND IN: Announcements, Strategy & Leadership

During the past decade, a major economic downturn, tight research funding, changing clinical reimbursement models, and new regulatory requirements are among the challenges that have brought tremendous change to the University of Michigan Medical School.

Through it all, the people that comprise the UMMS community — faculty, staff and students — have worked hard to keep Michigan among the elite medical schools in the world.

On Dec. 8, Dean James O. Woolliscroft, M.D., will discuss these changes and celebrate the people that have helped the U-M navigate them during his final presentation on the state of the Medical School, “Better by Change, Not by Chance,” at 5 p.m. in the D. Dan and Betty Kahn Auditorium of the A. Alfred Taubman Biomedical Science Research Building.

Following the presentation, Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs Marschall S. Runge, M.D., Ph.D., will make closing remarks. A reception will follow at 6 p.m. in the Gilbert S. Omenn Atrium.
