In the context of an impending federal budget gouge for the National Institutes of Health, Med City News looks at "who has the most to lose," by ranking the top 100 institutions and top states for NIH grants in 2010.
Vanderbilt University ranked 15th at $374 million. The top NIH recipient was Johns Hopkins at $686 million. Tennessee was 13th among states at $558 million. (Thanks, Vandy.)
“It has been a great joy and privilege to preside over the growth of what has become the largest academic department of its kind in the country, with 34 primary and 35 secondary faculty,” Masys said. “We have truly world-class teams working in areas that span from computational biology, molecular bioinformatics, natural language processing, machine learning, data mining and data privacy, to clinical systems research and development and implementation science."Masys' successor will be identified through a national search, which will start immediately. Jennifer Pietenpol, director of the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, will chair the search committee.
"As we listen to area employers and their hiring needs, adding new health care management offerings was something we could do to help our graduate students better tailor their degrees to the marketplace," said Massey associate dean Joe Alexander. "This new programming will add to our capacity to prepare MBA students for the emerging health care economy of tomorrow."The quality improvement and compliance track will offer students study in lean health care management and a course designed to help prepare students for the Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality exam. The human relations track is designed for those pursuing a career in human relations management, medical staff relations or professional services management; courses in the track require study in managing with health care professionals and a specialty course in health care human resource management.
“While there are some dollars involved there – big dollars – it doesn’t come near the scope of what I think we can address by saying, ‘what should each individual school be?’”
