Message from Interim Dean Wood

Welcome to the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at FAU!
As I assume the role of Interim Dean for the Schmidt College of Medicine, I am energized by our bright future ahead and I am committed to serving and providing seamless and effective leadership.
Our College recently completed a strategic plan refresh and developed an Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Action Plan as a commitment to being an equity-advancing organization with a diverse community of learners, teachers, clinicians, scientists, and administrators. These documents were a collaborative work involving all our stakeholders and represent a consensus with a clear roadmap for our immediate future.
As Interim Dean, I am confident in our College's ability to continue to deliver exceptional medical education programs, attract and retain top researchers, provide personalized, patient-focused healthcare, and engage impactfully and meaningfully within our community.
I invite you to join us on this journey as we work together to improve health by leading innovation in education, discovery and community-based care!
Sarah K. Wood, M.D.
Interim Dean and Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education
