Senior Associate Dean for Institutional and Faculty Affairs

University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine

Reno, Nevada


The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine (UNR Med) seeks an accomplished and collaborative professional in faculty affairs to become its Senior Associate Dean for Institutional and Faculty Affairs. As UNR Med embarks on the third year of its landmark 50-year affiliation agreement with Renown Health, it is searching for a visionary and dynamic leader. This individual will play a pivotal role in shaping and expanding the faculty affairs operation, aligning it with the institution's mission, vision, and values to propel the organization forward.


In October 2022, Dr. Paul Hauptman assumed the role of Dean of UNR Med and Chief Academic Officer of Renown Health. In these capacities, Dr. Hauptman promotes and advances the academic and clinical integration established through the affiliation between UNR Med and Renown Health. Under his guidance, UNR Med has successfully attracted numerous new clinical and research leaders to the faculty, resulting in growth both in numbers and diversity within the faculty body. This marks a pivotal juncture for the recruitment of a new Senior Associate Dean for Institutional and Faculty Affairs, offering an exciting opportunity to join Dr. Hauptman's leadership team during a period of substantial organizational potential. The incoming leader will play a key role in expanding and optimizing an inclusive strategic vision for faculty affairs while fostering robust, aligned, and connected institutional relationships across the university and community.


UNR Med has earned a reputation for its rich diversity, strength in medical and health sciences education, and basic science research. The 2023 edition of U.S. News & World Report ranks the R1 institution 28th for medical school diversity, and within the top 50 for the proportion of recent graduates practicing direct care in underserved and rural areas. The task now is to integrate the academic and clinical components in a coordinated and cooperative way alongside Renown Health to grow a broader clinical research enterprise, train and educate much-needed physicians, and work with clinical partners to provide excellent care to Nevadans in urban and rural communities. As a senior expert and key adviser to the Dean, the incoming Senior Associate Dean for Institutional and Faculty Affairs has a unique opportunity to address the state’s pressing health issues while further developing UNR Med’s reputation nationally. Moreover, the successful candidate will play a key role in attracting, retaining, and developing a world-class faculty, and ultimately physicians dedicated to serving the unique needs of Nevada.
