What's the Buzz - March 2013

What’s on my mind this month is how fortunate we are to have excellent and wonderfully vibrant graduate, allied health and public health programs embedded within the School of Medicine, which form an invaluable part of our academic enterprise. About half of the approximately 1,300 students enrolled in the School of Medicine are working toward degrees in life sciences, physical therapy, genetic counseling, medical and research technology, public health, and pathologist assistant. As advances in science and research move us closer to understanding health and disease at the molecular level, the medical and allied health professions must be intimately linked to scientific research.
