Lee Learman, candidate for dean of the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine (VTCSOM), will hold an open forum presentation on “The Changing Healthcare Landscape and Implications for Education of Physicians” from 3 p.m. - 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 29, in the Auditorium at 2 Riverside Circle in Roanoke.

Following the announcement that current Dean Cynda Johnson will step down from her role later this year, Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic launched an international search for the next dean of the VTCSOM. As part of the interview and selection process, Cyril Clarke, interim executive vice president and provost at Virginia Tech, and Patrice Weiss, chief medical officer for Carilion Clinic, invite all members of the Virginia Tech Carilion community to meet Learman (vitae) as he visits our campuses to interview.

Learman currently serves as the senior associate dean for academic affairs and the senior associate dean for graduate medical education at the Florida Atlantic University Schmidt College of Medicine, where he is also the designated institutional official and a tenured professor of obstetrics and gynecology.  Learman has over 20 years of progressive leadership experience in medical education and clinical leadership, and has been recognized with multiple awards for education and research.

Virginia Tech, Carilion Clinic, and community members are invited to attend Learman’s open forum presentation. The session will be broadcast live online and recorded for participants who cannot join in person. The candidate’s CV and survey links for providing feedback will be posted on the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost’s website in advance of the visit date. The search committee encourages all who attend or observe these meetings to submit feedback via the online surveys.
