Ross University School of Medicine Announces Departure of Senior Leader

02/08/13

Dr. Andrew Jeon was appointed president of Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) in 2011 and entrusted with an ambitious and challenging mandate to build upon RUSM’s tradition of excellence. Several important objectives required the immediate attention of a leader of Dr. Jeon’s vision and experience. Having achieved these objectives, and confident that RUSM’s continued progress is secure, Dr. Jeon has made the decision to leave the university.

William Hughson, president of DeVry’s Healthcare Group, commented, “During his tenure with RUSM, Dr. Jeon helped to advance several important initiatives, including the procurement of high-quality clinical clerkships, enhancements to student services, and innovations in the university’s academic programs. He had a great appreciation for the resilience and dedication of RUSM’s students, and actively promoted the quality of our students and faculty to the major accrediting bodies overseeing medical education both in the U.S. and internationally.”

Dr. Jeon came to RUSM from Partners Harvard Medical International, Inc., where he served as chief executive officer. Prior to that, he had more than two decades of senior academic, clinical, research, administrative and leadership experience, including serving as Chief of Hospital Services and Operations at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and as Director of Ambulatory Surgical Services at Massachusetts General Hospital. As a certified anesthesiologist and published author, Dr. Jeon also taught on the faculty of Harvard Medical School in the department of anesthesiology.
