Orthopaedic oncologist C. Parker Gibbs Jr., M.D., chief medical officer for UF Health Shands, has been named senior associate dean for clinical affairs for the college, a position most recently held by Timothy C. Flynn, M.D., until his retirement in April after nine years in the role. Marvin Dewar, M.D., J.D., will remain senior associate dean and chief executive officer of UF Health Physicians.
Effective May 1, Mark Segal, M.D., Ph.D., will serve as the senior associate dean for faculty affairs and professional development, and Ellen Zimmermann, M.D., will serve as associate dean for faculty development.
