Caleb McKinney, PhD, MPS, Associate Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, has been appointed interim Assistant Vice President of Master’s Program Administration & Development.

This elevation of Dr. McKinney’s role within BGE reflects the exceptional leadership he has demonstrated over the years in support of our students, faculty and staff. In this newly created GUMC leadership position, Dr. McKinney will be responsible for developing a medical center wide strategy for oversight, marketing, evaluation, and quality improvement of existing GUMC biomedical masters and certificate programs, and coordinating stakeholders across the medical center and the broader Georgetown University community to develop new certificate, masters, and accelerated programs. With student success and support center of mind, he will also be responsible for expanding experiential learning opportunities through strategic partnerships and promoting conditions of graduate student development through career development and student support offerings, and through student-led initiatives. 

In addition to his exceptional work we’ve witnessed in the BGE program during his role as associate dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Training & Development, he is also an MPI and co-director of the NIH/NIGMS-funded Georgetown University Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD), a predoctoral T32 training program that provides interprofessional and interdisciplinary training and student development activities focused on enhancing biomedical workforce diversity.

Dr. McKinney graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in biology and a minor in applied economics and management. He completed his PhD in microbiology from New York University, a master’s in professional studies in design management and communications at Georgetown University, and the Harvard Macy Program for Educators in the Health Professions.

Congratulations, Dr. McKinney!
