College of Medicine Educational Offices

There are two primary offices that support the educational mission of the medicine program in the College of Medicine: The Office of Admissions and Student Affairs and the Office of Medical Education. The Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs oversees both of these offices (Gerald F. Moore, MD, Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs).  The offices are located on the fourth floor of the Michael F.
