As dean, Dr. Rothman will lead the School of Medicine, which has more than 2,500 full-time faculty members, nearly 1,300 part-time faculty, more than 1,400 medical and graduate students, and more federal research support than any other U.S. medical school. As CEO, he also will govern—in partnership with Ronald R.
