LANSING (WJRT) (2/14/2018) - This announcement comes on the heels of the Larry Nassar scandal.
Interim President John Engler says they're now going to reorganize their campus health system to become a national model.
He says his vision is to have everyone feel safe walking into a door on campus.
"You will see something that is going to make you very proud to be proud to be a Spartan,” said Engler.
Engler announces that there will be one College of Medicine.
"I may be here for only a short time, and you can only have limited priority, but this is at the top of the list when we look at the academic mission and global mission,” he said.
Engler appointed Norman Beauchamp, Randolph Rasch, and Andrea Amalfitano at a press conference at the College of Nursing building as phase one of this plan.
Beauchamp is currently the dean of MSU's College of Human Medicine.
His new position as provost and assistant vice president for health affairs will oversee the standard of care provided by the school.
Beauchamp promising for the university will do better after the disgraced doctor Larry Nassar was exposed.
"We will restore an accountable care organization, accountable culture organization. Will we get it right for every patient, every student, and ever family every time,” Beauchamp said.
Engler would not comment on the majority faculty members voting no confidence in him and the Board of Trustees.
Engler plans to take this reorganization to the Board of Trustees.
The interim president says he believes the board is in full of support of this move.
