Welcome from Dean Kenner

Our mission is clear: We educate aspiring health professionals to become leaders, energized to change the health care landscape. Our students work closely with faculty and with local health care partners to build a solid foundation of knowledge and practical skill. Challenged to question deeply, think globally, and practice ethically, our students immerse themselves in the issues of today to help shape them tomorrow. I invite you to share this journey.

Carole Kenner, Dean
