Dr. David S. Weiss, dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, has been named a University of Texas System Chancellor’s Health Fellow in Graduate Education.
The UT System Office of Health Affairs established the prestigious Chancellor’s Health Fellowship program in 2004 to recognize high-impact work at individual health institutions that are aligned with the overarching mission of the UT System and have potential for broad societal impact on health care, education and research.
The work of previous Chancellor’s Health Fellows has focused on patient care quality, public health, and health care ethics among other topics.
