Council of Affiliated Deans

The Council of Affiliated Deans (COAD) was established by the Dean as a link to our affiliated institutions. With the advice and consent of the Dean, each affiliate chooses one representative to serve as an Assistant or Associate Dean. COAD meets quarterly and has the responsibility of keeping the members apprised of current Medical College education, research and faculty policies.
