Dear UC Davis Faculty, Staff, Students and Community Members,
We are delighted to announce that the first lecture in the 2015–16 season of the Provost’s Forums on the Public University and the Social Good will take place on Wednesday, October 21, 2015.
The first lecture of the season, titled “Universities, Hospitals and the Social Good,” features Julie A. Freischlag, Vice Chancellor for Human Health Sciences and Dean of UC Davis School of Medicine, and Glenn Richard Olds, founding Dean of UC Riverside School of Medicine and President of St. George’s University. Our speakers will talk about the complex and interconnected relationship between medical schools and the hospitals and other clinical settings that they rely on to train medical students. Dean Freischlag will discuss the benefits and challenges of partnerships between universities and hospitals, as well as share insights on opportunities for mutual success during a time of intense change in health care and health education. Dr. Olds will discuss how the new medical school at UC Riverside was built around community needs, using the community’s resources as a teaching platform. He also will discuss his work on replicating this model on a national scale in his new position as the President of St. George’s University in Grenada.
The event will take place at the Kalmanovitz Appellate Courtroom in King Hall (UC Davis School of Law) from 3 to 4:30 p.m. with a reception to follow until 5 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
