January 2014 - Present.  I initiated this new multidisciplinary EMDP MS degree, completed the research, identified gaps in the national EM/DP education, developed a 5 yr business plan (ROI 700% with a very conservative budget model), completed the Program Development Plan, added in recruitment of advisory board members (2 faculty from each school at WSU). Start date for EMDP program is fall 2016.

Director, MS graduate Program  Wright State University, Boonshoft School of Medicine, Pharmacology& Toxicology Dept.

February 2008 - Present (7 years ) • State:Ohio.

In 2008, I became the interim director of the Master of Science graduate program; the program was generating 250k in revenue, paid 29% of faculty salaries, and recruited an average of 5 students a year. By the end of 2014 the program was generating 1.5 million a year, was responsible for 50 - 100% of salaries.
Other accomplishments include:                                                                                
2009 - I presented a non-thesis MS option, doubled enrollment in one year.

2010 - I introduced/developed, several courses into the thesis/non-thesis tracks, including a CBRN course with the goal of a 3 course certificate program, a series of clinical courses taught by practicing surgeons, recruited a National Public Radio science correspondent adjunct faculty. Two of the courses start our distance learning curriculum.

2011 - I transferred the program from quarter to a semester system.

2012 - CBRN Defense Certificate program approved. While preparing for the semester conversion I recognized a financial risk to the university (25% loss of revenue) with the conversion and reported this to the university financial VP. This 25% reported loss across the university was confirmed.

2013 - I introduced a new MS program for WSU, Emergency Management Disaster Preparedness. I co-chaired an FBI/WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) Symposium. Enrollment increased from 22 in fall 2009 to 52 in fall 2013, representing an increase of 107 %. Degrees awarded increased from 8 in fall 2009 to 31 in fall 2013, representing an increase of 288 %. Course credit hours taught increased from 579 in fall 2009 to 1,112 in fall 2013, representing an increase of 92 %. 

2014 - I rebranded the Non-Thesis degree to a Leader/Admin degree, added several classes (Six Sigma, GLP..). This option is now more popular than the research option. I also created three online foundation courses.The CBRN certificate program is now online to accommodate distance learners. 

2015 - I am starting a tutor center, and plans for an MD/MS and Translational Medicine track and an MS degree online option.  Working on a CME health care certificate program. Just approved - a Pharmacology Clinical Research Course for MD and MS students involved in human subjects research, and a Human Studies Research Course, a course informing students interested in human subjects research on the appoval process (IRB/CITI) both offered SUMMER 2015.

Research statement: 


Traditional faculty meeting style in an academic setting is a common platform for collaborative decision making.  This setting can be disruptive, biased, resulting in unhealthy conflict and failure to accomplish the goals of the meeting.  Decisions are often made without enough background information and in a perceived limited timeframe.  The makeup of the faculty meetings with supervisors, subordinates, mentors, can create bias when votes are verbal not anonymous.  This review explores problems with group decision making, its benefits and will offer the faculty meeting as a group decision making process to explore in this paper. Current methods for group decision making are define and include the Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM) model, Multi-Attribute Utility Analysis (MAUA) and Decision Analysis (DA).  The Nominal Group and Delphi techniques are explored as options available but not successful in this situation.  Based on the current models, techniques, and needs of the faculty meetings a successful alternative to decision making in an academic group environment is identified and explained.
