Fifty years of medicine at Brown University has created a cadre of exceptional physicians, a variety of contributions to biomedical research and clinical care, and a strong infrastructure for continuing discovery in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.
But what Brown has planned for the next fifty years at The Warren Alpert Medical School will take teaching, research, clinical excellence, and community engagement to the next level.
The 2022-23 academic year presents a golden opportunity to deepen the legacy of medicine at Brown and accelerate the collaboration and exploration needed to find cures and therapeutics for devastating diseases, improve patient care, and inform policies and practices that address health care inequities.
The ambitious vision to expand the Medical School’s impact comes at the junction of three important moments: the University’s intent to increase the size of its research enterprise, the extension of the BrownTogether campaign, and Dr. Mukesh K. Jain’s first full academic year as dean of medicine and biological sciences at Brown.
“It’s an enormous pleasure and privilege to begin my tenure at such a historic moment for the institution,” says Jain. “I embrace it as an opportunity to galvanize support from constituents throughout Rhode Island. As dean of the only medical school in the state, I will engage with government and community leaders, University administrators and members of the local health care systems to effect change and coalesce our efforts around a shared vision.”
