Griffith will oversee all aspects of the Office of Medical Education, including medical student admissions, student affairs, curriculum, student evaluation and program assessment as well as graduate medical education and combined degree programs.

Griffith has served as associate dean for student affairs in the College of Medicine since 2010.  He is an educational scholar of national repute having published multiple articles and received numerous awards for his teaching including the AOA/AAMC Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Award in 2004, the most highly regarded medical school teaching award in the country. 

 

In 2006, the Clerkship Directors of Internal Medicine national organization honored him by renaming their educational research award the Charles H. Griffith Educational Research Award.  More recently, Griffith was profiled in “Leadership Careers in Medical Education”, the American College of Physician’s Teaching Medicine six book series published in 2010.

 

"I am confident that Dr. Griffith will continue to build on the quality and excellence of our educational programs and effectively lead us into the next phase of medical education," said Dr. Frederick C. de Beer, dean of the College of Medicine and vice president for clinical academic affairs.  "The Office of Medical Education has flourished under Dr. Jennings’ leadership and I look forward to working with Dr. Griffith to ensure its continued success."
