Philip Greenland, M.D., chair of preventive medicine at the Feinberg School of Medicine since 1991, has been named to the newly created post of executive associate dean for clinical and translational research at the Feinberg School of Medicine.
The appointment, one of three recently announced by Lewis Landsberg, M.D., Feinberg School dean and vice president for medical affairs, was effective Sept. 1.
Greenland’s responsibilities will work with Feinberg School units to assess clinical research infrastructure needs; coordinate development of new services, including a computerized clinical research record system, oversee implementation of a strategic plan for clinical and translational research; and spearhead clinical research training.
Greenland will step down as department chair but will continue as the Harry W. Dingman Professor of Cardiology at the Feinberg School. Rowland W. Chang, M.D., professor of preventive medicine and of medicine and director of the Master’s of Public Health program, will serve as interim department chair.
Landsberg also appointed Linda V. Van Horn, professor of preventive medicine, associate dean for faculty development.
She will be responsible for strengthening programs for faculty development at the Feinberg School.
Marianne M. Green, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, was named assistant dean for medical education. In her new position, she will spearhead expansion of the career advising program and assume leadership of the Honors Program in Medical Education, the University’s combined B.A./M.D. program. Green will remain a staff physician in internal medicine at the Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation.
