Yale University seeks an inspirational leader to serve as the next dean of the Yale School of Medicine.

The dean will find a scholarly community that believes Yale School of Medicine can chart a transformational course, where research, educational, and clinical faculty, in all ranks and tracks, reinforce each other’s aspirations, where science thrives, where students lead and respond to pedagogical innovation and where clinicians deliver exemplary care in settings throughout Connecticut. Learners, clinicians, and researchers all seek an innovative, diverse, inclusive culture that is explicitly values-driven and responsive to the human needs and aspirations of all of its patients and participants.

The school has stewarded preeminent science, created a celebrated educational program and, in partnership with the Yale New Haven Health System, has built a trajectory of constant improvement in clinical care. Increased specialization and improved clinical quality have produced dramatic growth in reputation and patient care visits
