He most recently served as a professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and as the director of research education and career development at the university’s Institute for Clinical and Translational Research. He oversaw clinical and translational research training activities, including graduate training and scholars programs.
Dr. Schwartz served for 12 years as dean of the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and oversaw medical education with a focus on the M.D./Ph.D. program and faculty development.
