Denise Jamieson named VP for medical affairs, Carver College of Medicine dean at UI
Denise J. Jamieson, the James Robert McCord Professor and Chair of the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at Emory University School of Medicine and chief of gynecology and obstetrics for Emory Healthcare, has been named vice president for medical affairs and dean of the Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa. She will begin Aug. 1.
Jamieson succeeds Brooks Jackson, who announced in February 2022 his plan to return to faculty and pursue his research once his successor was hired. Jackson served in the role for six years.
In addition to her clinical leadership roles, in which Jamieson has served since 2019, she also is a professor in the Department of Epidemiology in the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory. Her scientific work focuses on emerging infectious diseases in pregnancy and incorporates a population health perspective, with projects addressing health disparities and social determinants of health in the context of maternal morbidity and other adverse pregnancy outcomes. Jamieson also practices obstetrics and gynecology at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.
