Julie Byerley, the first of three candidates selected as finalists to serve as dean of the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine (VTCSOM), held an open forum presentation on “The Changing Healthcare Landscape and Implications for Education of Physicians” in Roanoke.

As part of the interview and selection process, Cyril Clarke, interim executive vice president and provost at Virginia Tech, and Patrice Weiss, chief medical officer for Carilion Clinic, invite all members of the Virginia Tech Carilion community to meet each of the candidates selected for campus interviews.

Byerley currently serves as vice dean for education and chief education officer at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.  She also holds an appointment as professor of pediatrics and has held progressive leadership roles in the UNC School of Medicine for more than a decade.   Byerley has been recognized with awards for her service, teaching, and mentorship, and has been honored as a fellow with both the Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine and Association of American Medical Colleges.   She holds a master of public health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a doctorate of medicine from Duke University.

Virginia Tech, Carilion Clinic, and community members were invited to attend each candidate’s open forum presentation.   The presentation was broadcast live online and recorded for participants who could not join in person.   Candidate CVs and survey links for providing feedback will be posted on the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost’s website, in advance of each visit date.   The search committee encourages all who attend or observe these meetings to submit feedback via the online surveys.

Remaining finalists will visit Roanoke and Blacksburg the weeks of Aug. 13 and 20, and will be announced prior to their visits.   The second finalist’s open forum presentation will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 16.   The third finalist’s forum will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 22.
