Stephen R. Daniels, MD, PhD, Professor and Chairmain, Department of Pediatrics,
University of Colorado School of Medicine, made the following announcement:
I'm pleased to announce, on behalf of the Department and Nancy Krebs, Vice
Chair for Academic Affairs, that Mark Abzug has agreed to serve as Associate
Vice Chair for Academic Affairs. After meetings with the SOM regarding the new
clinical series, and a careful assessment of our needs in AA for the Dept, Nancy
and I felt as if the work of AA will increase significantly for the foreseeable future and that additional help managing the new load was necessary.
Mark's service to the Department and CHCO over the past 25 years has been
substantial, including as Medical Director of our Clinical Trials Office, Director of Pediatric Grand Rounds, and service on our promotions and tenure committees,
Additionally, he has served and continues to serve on dozens of University and
national committees, working with faculty at all stages of their careers. We felt
Mark is uniquely qualified to assist Nancy in advocating for our faculty in their
promotions, mid-point reviews, tenure awards, and post-tenure reviews, as well as
in career development counseling.
Please join me in thanking Mark for his willingness to serve the Department and
all of us in this important new role.
