Davis to lead Medical School's Duluth campus

Gary Davis, Ph.D.

Medical School Dean Deborah Powell, M.D., has named longtime faculty member Gary L. Davis, Ph.D., senior associate dean of the University of Minnesota Medical School-Duluth Campus.

Davis, a licensed clinical psychologist, joined the Medical School’s Duluth campus in 1974 and has chaired the Behavioral Sciences Department since 1984.

“Rural Minnesota faces a severe shortage of physicians, and Native American communities need more Indian doctors,”says Davis. “I am pleased that I will be able to work with the faculty and staff on this campus, as well as with the deeply committed physician-teachers from greater Minnesota, in meeting that challenge.”

Davis, an associate professor and associate director of the Center for Rural Mental Health Studies, has received numerous awards over the years, including being named Minnesota’s “Rural Health Hero” last year. He succeeds Richard Ziegler, Ph.D., whose term ended in 2006.
