Coffee with the Dean

Coffee with the Dean is an ongoing series of virtual sessions where 10 select members of DGSOM community can engage in an open dialogue with Interim Dean Steven Dubinett on our culture, shared values, and diverse experiences.

Each one-hour Zoom session is grounded in one of the three Cultural North Star pillars and serves a platform for ideas, questions, and solutions that stimulate thoughtful, positive discussion as we strive to honor our noble purpose: “To heal humanity by improving human health, alleviating suffering, and delivering acts of kindness.”
