Dr. Jane Salmon, Professor of Medicine, Division of Rheumatology, has been appointed to Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs at Weill Cornell Medicine. She will oversee Weill Cornell Medicine's Office of Faculty Affairs, working closely with Assistant Dean of Faculty Affairs Mark Albano, senior leadership, and department chairs to implement best practices for appointments, promotions, and tenure actions. She will also coordinate with the Office of Faculty Development and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion on behalf of clinical, teaching and research faculty.
An internationally recognized academic rheumatologist, Dr. Salmon earned her M.D. from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University, where she was the first woman enrolled in their Medical Scientist Training Program. She completed training in internal medicine at NYP/WCM and in rheumatology at the Hospital for Special Surgery, where she has been a faculty member since 1983. A translational scientist and clinician, she has defined important mechanisms of tissue injury that occur as a consequence of autoimmune diseases and lead to devastating outcomes, such as fetal loss, and she is also identifying treatment strategies to promote the health of this patient population. Dr. Salmon is one of the first Hospital for Special Surgery staff members to hold a senior leadership position at Weill Cornell Medicine. She is Professor of Medicine and of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Weill Cornell and the Collette Kean Research Professor at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
The Weill Department of Medicine congratulates Dr. Salmon on her new role.
