University of Iowa Health Care announced a new leadership structure in February that combines the positions of UI vice president for medical affairs and dean of the UI Carver College of Medicine into a single position. Jean E. Robillard, MD (’74 F), has assumed this new combined role. He had served as vice president for medical affairs for more than eight years and previously served as dean.

Debra A. Schwinn, MD, who had been dean since November 2012, was appointed to a new role as associate vice president for medical affairs. She is focusing on special projects to foster stronger alignment of the organization’s clinical and educational missions.
