Office of the President and Dean


From the Desk of Dr. Montgomery Rice

My vision for Morehouse School of Medicine is aligned with the strategic plan that has been informed by our board of trustees, alumni, students, faculty and staff, and community partners. Our bold new vision is “leading the creation and advancement of health equity,” which is undergirded by the long-standing mission of this institution. As the nation’s leading academic medical center for vulnerable populations, we are ultimately defined by our ability to create and advance health equity. This vision requires us to think differently about the role of medical education. It requires us to think differently about how we train students and residents, pursue scientific discovery, treat patients, and engage our communities. Within the pages of our website, we share with you ways in which we are currently doing this work and new innovations that we believe will move us dramatically forward in this effort.

MSM is not alone. We are in a unique position of being an integrated member of the largest consortium of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the world—the Atlanta University Center. This offers an opportunity to create collaborative scholars who will work together on cross-disciplinary challenges and help advance the continuum of bench-to-bedside science, patient care and community health. 

I look forward to getting to know all the members of our community and wish to thank you for this opportunity to share our vision. I also ask you to partner with us when possible.

Together, we are on a mission!
