By | January 17, 2003

Effective April 1st, Dr. Ralph Horwitz assumes his new posts as CWRU`s Vice President for Medical Affairs and Dean of the School of Medicine. Dr. Horwitz is known to many here at CWRU and the Center as the Co-Director of Yale`s Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program (since 1978); as a researcher who has made major methodologic contributions in clinical epidemiology over the past 25 years; and, more recently, as Chair of Yale`s Department of Medicine. In a statement issued at the time of his recent appointment, Dr. Horwitz stated: “A particular passion of mine is the social contract linking the practice of medicine to the civic responsibility of the profession of medicine, and I see the embodiment of that in the affiliation with MetroHealth Medical Center.” Needless to say, we are delighted that CWRU has attracted Dr. Horwitz to Cleveland!
