Department of Medicine leaders promoted to new positions.

Myron Weisfeldt, M.D.<br/>Director, Department of Medicine

During my last few months as director of the Department of Medicine, I have been looking back on our accomplishments. The remarkable success of the department during my tenure reflects a team effort involving numerous superb leaders, many of whom have ascended to positions of institutional leadership.

There are almost too many to mention in this short space, but they include Redonda Miller, chief medical officer for The Johns Hopkins Hospital; Landon King, executive vice dean for the School of Medicine; Dan Ford, vice dean for clinical investigation and director of the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research; Antony Rosen, vice dean for research; Roy Ziegelstein, vice dean for education; Dave Hellmann, vice dean for Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center; Joe Cofrancesco, director of the Institute for Excellence in Education; Steve Sisson, executive director of ambulatory services; Steve Kravet, president of Johns Hopkins Community Physicians; Rick Bennett, president of Hopkins Bayview; Charlie Reuland, COO of Hopkins Bayview; and Mike Klag, dean of the Bloomberg School of Public Health. Together they make an amazing array of leaders.

I have also appreciated the truly remarkable work of our administration, under Chip Barbara, in each program related to clinical medicine, research, education, and grants submission and management; our nursing leaders, Karen Davis and Terry Nelson; and our formal education leaders, Charlie Wiener, Sanjay Desai, Len Feldman, Roz Stewart, Colleen Christmas, the firm faculty, and the program leaders at Johns Hopkins Bayview and the Osler service. There are also 17 or so stellar division chiefs. Chuck Turner, Anne Kennan and their development team keep the department in the black!

In addition, I have been extremely pleased with the remarkable effectiveness of all faculty, due in part to the collaborative efforts of our clinical and research teams. I look forward to the recruitment of a great new leader for the department, and I will do what I can as a fellow faculty member to help with philanthropy and program development! Finally I thank all of you for your support.
