RMCAA Building Enthusiasm, Momentum Into 2015

“The Rush Medical College Alumni Association Executive Council had a very productive fiscal year in 2014. The thrust of the year was to create a business plan that would guide the council’s work and provide milestones against which to measure progress.

Driven by alumni feedback, our three major areas of focus are promoting alumni engagement, enhancing the value of a Rush degree, and supporting the medical college, residency and fellowship programs.

We have already seen successes with the creation of a legacy application process, increased participation in funding of the White Coat Ceremony and the recruitment of 40 co-chairs for our 2015 reunion. We enter 2015 with great enthusiasm and momentum.”
— Tony M. Kotin, MD ’77, GME, President of the Rush Medical College Alumni Association

RMC to Appoint New Dean

As Rush University and Rush Medical College have grown, so has the need for dedicated leadership at the University and college levels. As such, Thomas A. Deutsch, MD ’79, GME (at left), who has served for
13 years as the Henry P. Russe, MD, Dean of Rush Medical College and 10 years as provost of Rush University, will step down as dean and serve solely as University provost.

The duties of the dean of Rush Medical College will become a separate full-time position, with a national search for
Deutsch’s successor beginning immediately.
