Henri R. Ford, MD Named Dean, Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine
The University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine is enthusiastically announcing that Henri R. Ford, MD, has been named the new Dean of the Medical School. Ford will join the University on June 1, 2018.

Dr. Ford is a Haitian-born pediatric surgeon who maintains close ties with his native country. In 2010 he traveled to Haiti after the earthquake to provide surgical care to children injured in the devastation. Since then, Dr. Ford has returned regularly to provide medical care to its residents. In May 2015, he performed the first successful separation of conjoined twins in Haiti, telling CBS News that it was "extremely gratifying" to be able to perform the operation in his home country alongside Haitian surgeons whom he helped to train.

He is currently the Senior VP and Chief of Surgery at the Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), Vice-Dean of Medical Education, and Professor and Vice Chair for Clinical Affairs in the Department of Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. Dr. Ford was Professor and Chief of the Division of Pediatric Surgery and Surgeon-in-Chief at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine prior to joining CHLA in January 2005.
