The Future is Now

Adapted from the Dean's State of the School Address, October 14, 2008
School of Medicine

From the Dean

I’d like to welcome all of you to our annual faculty and staff meeting. As I was telling one of our faculty members earlier, the School of Medicine is one big family. The spirit of collegiality here is strong, and like all families, we have opportunities and challenges. How we seize our opportunities and meet our challenges is what defines the School of Medicine as a top-ranked place of research and scholarship. Despite a flat NIH budget, the economic struggles of Grady Health System, and refining the new curriculum, we have been successful in all of our missions. Today I want to take a closer look at what we have accomplished in education, research, and clinical care.
