Dear Friends and Colleagues-
What great news from Provost Perry! I cannot imagine a better person to become your next dean; I know Dr. Phillip Boiselle will work hard with you to accomplish many good things.
We promised one another that we would undertake an exhaustive, fully inclusive process. I feel good that we did just that and want to acknowledge all the hard work of the Search Committee. Great job everyone!
There is lots of time left for thanks and goodbyes -- so no need for any of that now -- but, I cannot allow this moment to go by without recognizing each and every one of you for all of the support and enthusiasm you gave the search process.  So, to our Faculty, Staff, Students, College Advisory Committee, GME Consortium partners, University & Boca Raton Communities....... BRAVO & THANK YOU!!!!  It meant so much to all of the candidates and, of course, to me.
Please rest assured, the "transition" has begun and is now my most important responsibility. I will assure that it is complete, seamless and transparent. Dr. Boiselle will be ready on Day One!
With thanks again and everlasting appreciation-
Arthur J. Ross III, M.D., M.B.A.
Interim Dean and Professor
