Medicine and Health Sciences


Welcome to the first issue of our new publication. Designed to be a quick and easy read, our goal is to convey the energy and passion found throughout the dynamic University of Connecticut School of Medicine.

I became the seventh dean of the UConn School of Medicine and vice president for Health Affairs at the UConn Health Center just a year ago. I joined the UConn community from the University of Virginia, where I served as the Lillian T. Pratt Distinguished Professor and chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. Since my arrival, I have been continually impressed with the quality and intellectual vigor of our medical school faculty, students and alumni.

Three times a year, these pages will highlight just some of the extraordinary accomplishments and talents of these people. We will share their stories and describe the impact they are having both here in Connecticut and well beyond.
