How do you engage with the UWS mission on a daily basis?
As vice president of clinic affairs, I interact with the UWS mission by overseeing activities related to delivery of patient services and the operations of university clinics and affiliated clinical sites. I work closely with academic personnel to ensure that students participate in effective clinical experiences that enhance their development as practitioners.
