A Chancellor's Tale: Transforming Academic Medicine
Stepping Down and Lessons Learned
Dr. Snyderman stepped down as Chancellor after his third five-year term in June 2004. In the ten years since, he has actively advocated for new models for health care. He learned many lessons from his 15-year experience, some professional and some personal—but perhaps above all, he learned that the distinction between the two is ultimately artificial. Personal relationships and institutional ones invariably intermingle and the same basic qualities of integrity apply to all forms of leadership.
