Baylor College of Medicine in Houston has named Jay Stein, M.D., to a newly created position overseeing physician practices and patient care at the college's six affiliated hospitals.
Stein will be a senior vice president and dean of clinical affairs, with responsibilities that include overseeing patient care at Baylor's proposed adult ambulatory clinic, the medical school says in a release from last week.
A Chicago native, Stein comes to Baylor from the University of Rochester Medical Center, New York, where he served as senior vice president and vice provost for health affairs, as well as the CEO of the Medical Center and Strong Health System, Baylor says.
Prior to Rochester, Stein was senior vice president and provost at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. He has also served as chairman of the department of medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where he was also chief of the division of renal diseases. Prior to that was professor of medicine at Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus.
