This is an exceptional opportunity to lead a highly regarded College of Medicine that has a reputation for training prominent healthcare professionals and providing leading-edge research. The UC System is seeking a successor to continue to lead the transformation and growth of the College of Medicine, paving the future for innovative clinical care, research and education.

The next Dean of the College of Medicine & SVP for Health Affairs will model next-level leadership: empowering faculty and staff, setting a tone of shared purpose with the College and health system, establishing the highest standards in quality of patient care and patient safety, educational outcomes, research impact, and financial stewardship, through an inclusive and equitable style of leadership. With a robust understanding of the changing dynamics in healthcare, the Dean/SVP will be equipped to work with senior leadership at the University, UC Health, and UC Physicians Group to shape an outstanding, integrated academic medical center. 

Serving as the chief academic, administrative, executive, and financial officer of the College of Medicine, the Dean shapes and leads the college research, educational and clinical missions. Additionally, in the capacity of SVP for Health Affairs, this leader serves as the senior executive of the Academic Health Center, which comprises four colleges: College of Nursing, College of Allied Health Sciences, College of Pharmacy and College of Medicine.

The Ideal Candidate

Candidates must have a strong record of leadership and accomplishment in academia and clinical practice, along with effective interpersonal and communication skills that engender cooperation and collaboration among faculty, students, staff, allied health professionals and community leaders. Candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion. Demonstrated senior managerial, financial and leadership experience at the college or university level, with engagement in the research and educational missions is necessary. A medical doctorate degree is required.

The Organization

The College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati is a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) institution, ranked #53 as Best College, and a top-35 medical school for research according to U.S. News and World Report. Additionally, U.S. News & World Report added several new rankings last year, including a Diversity Index, in which the college is ranked No. 28. University of Cincinnati Physicians, Inc. (UCP) serves as the faculty practice plan and is a separate Ohio nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. All clinical faculty, staff physicians and other non-physician clinicians employed by the COM practice medicine within their specialty through UCP. UC Health is Cincinnati’s only integrated adult academic health system and has eclipsed $2.1 billion in total revenues, more than doubling its revenues since its recent launch and achieving an average annual compound growth rate of 7.63 percent. The UC Medical Center has been ranked among the world’s best hospitals for the third year in a row, according to Newsweek Magazine. In partnership with the University of Cincinnati, UC Health combines clinical expertise with research and teaching—a combination that provides specialty and subspecialty care unavailable elsewhere in the community.

The Region

While successfully retaining its small-town feel, Cincinnati is a thriving urban center offering a diversity of economy and residents. The Downtown area offers a variety of trendy neighborhoods and serves as a major hub for businesses, museums, concerts, football and baseball sporting events, restaurants, and cozy pubs. The area is known for its excellent educational options and quality housing at reasonable prices.
