Valerie D. Weber, MD, Appointed Vice Dean for Education at Drexel University College of Medicine
Date:7/25/2014

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

Drexel University College of Medicine is pleased to announce that Valerie D. Weber, MD, MS, FACP, has been appointed vice dean for education, effective October 1, 2014.

Weber will join Drexel from The Commonwealth Medical College, where she is currently chair of the Department of Clinical Sciences, associate dean for clinical affairs, and professor of medicine.

As a member of the senior leadership team of The Commonwealth Medical College, Weber had a major role in many aspects of the development of the new school, which awarded its first medical degrees in May 2013. She was responsible for recruiting and developing more than 400 faculty members for the Departments of Medicine, Surgery and Psychiatry, as well as faculty leaders to create and implement the curriculum. She also led the development of the school’s innovative clinical curriculum, the centerpiece of which is a third-year longitudinal integrated clerkship, the largest implementation of that model in the world. This involved the development of medical school faculty across a 16-county region, establishing academic affiliations with nearly 30 hospitals and dozens of physician groups, and crafting a robust assessment plan.

Weber was the first chair of Commonwealth’s Committee on Academic and Professional Standards and was the LCME self-study chair (2010/11). She has been a member of the school’s Academic Leadership Group and Institutional Leadership Group since their inception in 2009. She has also been active in the teaching of medical students at all levels, including problem-based, team-based and systems (case-based) learning sessions; history and physical examination; and the quality and patient safety curriculum.
