As promised last week, here is a summary of the Match Day results for our soon-to-be graduating senior medical students.

From the Dean: Crossing over in Bismarck

The second half of the legislative session in Bismarck just began. Bills passed by each chamber now “cross-over” to the other chamber. The funding bill for us, and the rest of the North Dakota University System (NDUS), including UND, is House Bill 1003, which is now being considered by the Senate. We will testify before […]

As discussed last week, this past Tuesday I gave the “State of the School” presentation at the annual Faculty Assembly sponsored by the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences Faculty Council.

From the Dean: Our end-of-year reporting

Categories: From the Dean

We held the pre-legislative session of the UND SMHS Advisory Council this past Wednesday in Bismarck. It was a hybrid event, with most participants joining virtually.

As I mentioned last week, this past Monday I met with Director Joe Morrissette and his staff in the state Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as a prelude to the upcoming legislative session.

From the Dean: Budget updates, a flurry of events, and remembering Garl Rieke

Categories: From the Dean

We’re still celebrating UND Homecoming 2022, which saw the recognition of 10 years of our School’s Master of Public Health (MPH) program. As I said to our alumni, students, faculty, and staff at the SMHS Homecoming banquet last Friday, our MPH program has grown by leaps and bounds over the past decade, and, in retrospect, […]

From the Dean: Taking inflation seriously

Categories: From the Dean

This past Tuesday we held one of the periodic conversations I have with the SMHS family that we call Java with Josh. This time we again had a terrific turnout, with nearly 80 faculty and staff participating on the virtual videoconference call. Pre-pandemic, we used to hold the discussions in the Grand Forks building and […]

As this academic and fiscal year winds down and the new one begins on July 1, we are finalizing our budget for the upcoming second year of the biennium. Per North Dakota University System (NDUS) requirements, we need to electronically submit our final budget package to the NDUS and embed it in their system soon. […]

Research Tip: Best practice process for proposals

Categories: Research

A new research proposal checklist was developed in Jan. 2022. But because even one small change to the budget tool affects the proposal packet, and thus the Novelution submission, please follow a best practice procedure up front. To help navigate the checklist, then, follow the procedure below, which should result in needing fewer changes in all areas of […]

This past Wednesday I had the privilege of delivering the annual “State of the School” address at the Faculty Assembly. It was (again) a virtual event and we had great turnout, with over 100 individuals participating. I outlined my assessment of where we are as a school, and, importantly, where we hope to go in […]
