Dr. Linda Carol Perkowski said there are three important things in reaching her goal at Central Michigan University if chosen as associate dean for medical education and faculty development for the College of Medicine. “Community, commitment and curriculum will be the bases for the model,” the second of two for the position formerly occupied by Dr. Nehad El-Sawi told a crowd of 20 listeners Thursday in Health Professions Building 2255 during her open forum.
Two Saginaw locations were identified Monday for clinical education, practice and administrative needs to train Central Michigan University medical students.
One site is on Hoyt Avenue adjacent to the St.
University officials told the board of trustees Thursday that "significant progress" has been made with the College of Medicine — both financially and academically. The college is close to 50 percent of its $25-million fundraising goal and Dr. Ernest Yoder, founding dean of the College of Medicine, said the entire four-year curriculum design for the program will be completed soon.
Incoming freshmen for the 2011-12 school year will benefit from a $3.3 million increase in financial aid following board approval Thursday at the board of trustees meeting. “There will be an additional $3.3 million financial aid to meet a growing number of students,” University President George Ross said. “The whole budget will be finalized in July.” The financial aid budget totaled $28 million this school year.

During a board of trustees committee meeting today, Kathy Wilbur, vice president of External Relations and Development, said gifts have come in from anonymous donors, which she told the board this is "common." By the July board meeting, she said she hopes to have additional "significant gifts" for the college.
Central Michigan University is not alone in delaying the College of Medicine by a year. Dr. Dan Hunt, Liasion Committee on Medical Education co-secretary from 2010-11, said about 25 percent of developing medical colleges delay submitting their LCME application and subsequently opening their schools for various reasons.
Trustee Dr. Sam Kottamasu first suggested a medical school at Central Michigan University on April 20, 2007 because the mid-Michigan area will see a shortage of up to 600 doctors in the near future. The board of trustees gave former-University President Michael Rao permission Dec. 6 of the same year to move forward with the proposal.
Central Michigan University President George Ross can question the validity and accuracy of the Detroit Free Press story published on March 27, all he wants, as I question the effectiveness of paying university administration huge salaries. This administration continues to raise our tuition and spend it on what, in my mind, are frivolous ventures such as a medical school. I see no controversy in this news report from the Detroit Free Press. I do see why the administration would argue it, because it makes them look bad, and CMU cannot have that.
Third- and fourth-year medical students could be affected by a 1990s statute limiting residencies at teaching hospitals, leading schools such as Central Michigan University to advocate for a cap lift or increase. CMU and 16 other schools are in the beginning stages of acquiring accreditation for a new medical school, according to the Liaison Committee on Medical Education website. But with a projected shortage of physicians nationwide, some might wonder where all the new medical graduates will go unless action is taken on the cap.
Sarah Opperman, board of trustees chairwoman, said severance packages are “normal” in response to the package given to Dr. Nehad El-Sawi for resigning from the College of Medicine in January. Opperman, during a meeting with the press after the Feb. 17 board meeting, said losing employees is unfortunate in any situation — either in business or at a public university. “Severance packages are very normal, especially for senior executives,” Opperman said. “It’s unfortunate when it happens, but it’s also how you get the quality of people you need."
Dr. Joel Lanphear pitches his leadership style and vision as a potential associate dean of Medical Education and Faculty Development for the College of Medicine. During the first of two open forums on Monday in the Health Professions Building, he said his vision is transformational and focused on his commitment to social accountability and to appropriate educational processes.
Dr. Joel Lanphear said he is looking forward to visiting Central Michigan University and discussing his hopes for the medical school. Lanphear, College of Medicine associate dean finalist, will speak at an open forum from 1 to 1:45 p.m. in the Health Professions Building room 2255 Monday. He said one of his strengths is that he has developed three start-up medical schools, and CMU would be his fourth. He said he has a background in leadership and helping individuals meet their own goals.
Dr. Joel Lanphear and Dr. Linda Perkowski are the finalists of a national search for Central Michigan University’s College of Medicine associate dean/medical education position. The chosen candidate will replace Dr. Nehad El-Sawi, who was the associate dean for medical education and faculty development.

Dr. Joel Lanphear and Dr. Linda Perkowski were chosen as finalists for Central Michigan University’s College of Medicine associate dean/medical education position following a national search.
Medical schools make for great headlines. But grandiose gestures aren’t always the best way to improve a university. I’m not opposed to putting new tools in Central Michigan University’s academic toolbox, but there are issues if we are not using the tools we have to their maximum potential — building a medical school while postponing the creation of a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program is doing just that.
The largest cash gift ever given to a Michigan college or university was reportedly donated Tuesday to Western Michigan University’s School of Medicine. The donation of $100 million was announced Tuesday by WMU President John M. Dunn and the private medical college’s partners, Borgess and Bronson hospitals' respective chief executive officers, Paul Spaude and Frank Sardone.
Eliminating paychecks completely from the university payroll system is a cost-effective move, but additional cuts can still be extended to other areas of campus. When only 1 percent of faculty and staff employees and 15 percent of student employees use the traditional method, it is about time to do away with the system. Direct deposit is not only an efficient way for employees to be paid, but it also eliminates the expensive process of printing paper checks. Regardless, cutting paychecks to an insignificant number of students, faculty and staff will likely result in insignificant savings.
Community stakeholders heard updates about several Vision 20/20 projects from its five committees at its fourth annual luncheon Wednesday. Quality of Life Chairman Mark Smith announced plans for the committee's Mid-Michigan Community Pathways project, which would focus on connecting the existing Pere Marquette Path in Clare to the Fred Meijer Heartland Trail in Alma and Ionia Pathway in Ithaca.
Really? Nehad El-Sawi is receiving nearly a quarter-million dollars upon her resignation? I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous. No offense to the professor (I'm sure she provided much help for the College of Medicine), but she was here for 10 months and is being paid almost 5 times more than my dad makes in 1 year! More importantly, her "severance package" could pay for approximately 11 years of tuition.
I'm outraged by what this school is doing. Nehad El-Sawi resigned on her own free will. There is no need to give her $238,691.76 No normal person would resign or get fired while being paid for it unless the campus is trying to hide something. Most professors that read the story know they would never be given that luxury.
