Announcing College of Medicine Dean Finalists Campus Forums

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

It is my pleasure to announce that the search committee for the Dean of the University of Illinois College of Medicine has identified outstanding finalists for the position. I have invited these two candidates to visit the university and interview in Chicago during the month of January.

The candidate names, biographies and evaluation forms will be posted two days in advance of their visit to the search website.

I encourage the campus community to attend the open forums where the candidates will give a brief presentation on their background and their outlook on medical education, research and health care delivery. A portion of the open forums will be reserved for questions. After each open forum, you are invited to attend a light reception with the candidate.

PLEASE NOTE: arrangements will be made for the College of Medicine campus communities in Rockford, Peoria and Urbana to gather on their respective campus and participate virtually in the candidate forums. Detailed information will be distributed to these campuses as each candidate is announced.

CANDIDATE 1: Monday, January 14, 2019
Student Center West (SCW), 2nd Floor Michele M. Thompson Rooms & Lobby
4 to 5 p.m. – Open Forum
5 to 6 p.m. – Light Reception

I hope that you will take this opportunity to meet the finalists, and I welcome your feedback using the form found on the search website. The form will be open for 72 hours after each candidate visit. If you have any questions, please contact the search coordinator, Margaret Moser, at mlmoser@uic.edu.

I would like to thank the search committee, co-chaired by Dean Karen Colley and Dr. Terry Vanden Hoek, for their excellent work on this important recruitment.

Sincerely,

Robert A. Barish, MD, MBA
Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs
