Stanford medical school's new leader
Lloyd Minor, MD, became dean of the School of Medicine on Dec. 1, and has been on campus getting to know Stanford since September. An otolaryngologist who specializes in the diseases of the inner ear, he spent the past 19 years at Johns Hopkins University and became provost in 2009. In that role, he implemented initiatives that strengthened science education, increased interdisciplinary scholarship and bolstered diversity. In this podcast, Minor discusses what he has learned about Stanford over the last few months, what he values in himself and other people, and where health care is headed as new reforms become reality.
