I am pleased to announce that Betsy Seaquist, MD, has accepted the role of associate dean for Medical Specialties and Primary Care for the University of Minnesota Medical School.


With our ambition to align strategy and integrate operations of the Medical School and University of Minnesota Physicians, the associate dean focused on Medical Specialties and Primary Care will play a key role in ensuring we have the systems and tools to meet those goals. This important work will include collaborations across the medical specialty and primary care departments on strategic recruitments, research and clinical programming, as well as expanding partnerships across the Medical School and the University. Dr. Seaquist will work closely with the chairs of these departments to ensure their priorities and unique needs and characteristics are well understood.
