Dear Jacobs School community,
As part of my ongoing commitment to build upon the existing solid foundation of academic excellence at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, I am pleased to announce the appointments of David A. Milling, MD, as the executive director of the Office of Medical Education, and John C. Panepinto, PhD, as the executive director of the Office of Biomedical Education.
In this new role, Dr. Milling will have responsibility for the Offices of Student and Academic Affairs, Medical Curriculum and Medical Admissions. He will oversee the development, delivery and success of the medical educational program, including the growth and management of the new medical education curriculum to be implemented in 2023. Dr. Milling will be the senior associate dean for medical education.
Dr. Panepinto will be responsible for oversight of the biomedical educational program, including all the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs at the Jacobs School. Like Dr. Milling’s role, Dr. Panepinto will be responsible for the development, delivery and success of the biomedical education programs, which include strategic planning and management of the biomedical education curriculum.
Dr. Panepinto will be the senior associate dean for biomedical education. Additionally, with the retirement of Dr. Anthony A. Campagnari, PhD, we will be transferring his research role to a Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences Office of Research. This office will build upon a solid foundation of basic, translational and clinical research at the Jacobs School.
Drs. Milling and Panepinto will join Gregory S. Cherr, MD, who is the senior associate dean for graduate medical education and who leads the Office of Graduate Medical Education. Together, these three leaders will work to achieve our vision of the Jacobs School training the next generation of researchers and clinicians to meet the future workforce needs of our country, with a focus on Western New York.
I hope you will join me in congratulating Drs. Milling and Panepinto in their new roles. With their leadership I am confident that we can further the educational mission of the Jacobs School and ensure the educational experience is of the highest quality.
