The University of Missouri – Columbia (MU or Mizzou), the flagship, land-grant, comprehensive research university of the University of Missouri System (UM), welcomes applications and nominations for its Executive Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs (EVC).
Dedicated to improving the health of all Missourians, MU Health is a comprehensive integrated academic health center that includes: MU Health Care hospitals and clinics, MU School of Medicine, and its University Physicians practice plan. MU Health is the leading health care provider in Mid-Missouri with operations totaling more than $1 billion. During FY18, it served more than 226,000 Missourians; its clinics had in excess of 680,000 visits and the emergency departments and trauma center had more than 79,000 visits. The School of Medicine’s more than 680 faculty physicians and scientists annually educate more than 1,000 medical students, residents, fellows, and others seeking advanced degrees.
The EVC will set the vision guiding MU Health’s trajectory as an agile, coordinated academic health science center pursuing the highest quality clinical care, the education of tomorrow’s best clinicians and scientists, and important discoveries. The EVC oversees both the Dean of the School of Medicine and the CEO of the University of Missouri Health System. To ensure strategic alignment of health affairs with academic and research efforts, the EVC reports directly to the UM President and the MU Chancellor. Fundamentally, success for the EVC is creating a transcendent relationship between MU Health and the School of Medicine where multiple missions thrive and synthesize to create scale and the capacity to improve lives for decades to come.
The successful candidate will be a physician leader capable of building excellence in patient care delivery, research, education. An MD or equivalent degree is required. The EVC will bring a deep commitment to advancing diversity and creating inclusive, equitable organizational cultures. MU seeks candidates with experience leading transparently, collectively, and responsively, who possess a deep understanding of both academic medical centers and hospital systems and the broad threats and opportunities facing both.
MU has retained Isaacson, Miller, a national executive search firm, to assist the search committee in its efforts. The search committee will review candidates beginning immediately and continue until the position has been filled. Nominations and applications (CV and cover letter) should be submitted online at www.imsearch.com/6977
