The University of Michigan Medical School is a world leader in medical and basic science education, research and clinical care. Many factors contribute to our leadership, including the selection and retention of outstanding Chairs for our academic departments; twenty clinical, seven basic science, the Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine and the Department of Medical Education.
In furtherance of our mission, our Chairs have the experience, knowledge and vision necessary to lead our tripartite missions in education, clinical and research opportunities while continuing to mentor and develop faculty. Throughout our long and distinguished history, the Medical School has recruited the highest caliber scholars to serve as leaders for its departments.
The University of Michigan is one of the most collaborative academic communities anywhere - an exciting, sophisticated center of learning that is highly regarded around the country and abroad. We offer nationally recognized collegiate athletic programs, arts and entertainment and we are surrounded by the wondrous "Great Lakes." I am proud of what we have to offer students, faculty and most importantly the public and invite you to explore our University's rich tradition and culture.
At Michigan, we are creating the future of health care through discovery. Join us as a leader and help make the future a reality.
