Deans Raise Bar for Research, Teaching, Clinical Excellence
Rising expectations for deans in academic medicine focus on excellence in research, teaching and patient care. Talented deans think strategically, lead by their example and intellect, and make hard decisions about where to invest in people and resources. Ultimately, they’re responsible for setting high standards for personal and institutional performance.
Witt/Kieffer’s academic medicine consultants, including former deans, assist search committees in identifying visionary deans for medical and health sciences schools including nursing, dentistry, allied health, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, public health and/or biomedical/life sciences. We learn each position’s distinctive requirements and prepare detailed specifications that become the foundation for the search. We rely on a best-in-class database – and original research – to identify the best candidates. We conduct in-depth interviews, credential verification, online checks and deeper references in academic medicine than any leading firm.
