A Chancellor's Tale: Transforming Academic Medicine
A New Beginning
Dr. Snyderman’s second and third terms focused on consolidating and advancing the achievements of his first term in faculty recruitment, greater managerial and administrative efficiencies, and creating a culture and business foundation that would allow it to prosper. Issues related to diversity, racial and gender equity were identified and addressed. The concept and eventual implementation of Duke University Health System was the center of a coherent approach for clinical operations. DUHS expanded the medical center to include regional hospital and physician networks thereby creating an integrated sustaining regional health enterprise.
