Iriana Hammel, MD, FACP, AGSF, has been named assistant dean for clinical sciences at Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM). Dr. Hammel, who has been with RUSM since 2011, is based in Miramar, Florida, where she has served as senior program director of the Internal Medicine Foundations program (IMF). She also teaches an elective in geriatrics to clinical students.

A native of Romania, Dr. Hammel earned her medical degree at Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, and came to the US for an internship and residency in internal medicine at Westlake Hospital in Melrose Park, IL, followed by a fellowship in geriatric medicine at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, IL.

“My lifelong dream was to be a doctor,” Dr. Hammel said. “I planned to practice medicine in Romania, but I wanted to train abroad, in the US,” she said. Then, while working in Michigan, she met her future husband and the plan changed. They are now the parents of two daughters.

“This promotion reflects Dr. Hammel’s sustained contribution to our educational programs,” said Dean and Chancellor Joseph A. Flaherty, MD.

Dr. Hammel has authored and presented many academic papers, and is the recipient of numerous awards and honors. She is board certified in geriatric medicine and in internal medicine.
