New dean of medicine takes a ‘listening tour’ of UTMB

Posted: Sunday, April 28, 2013 12:30 am

Dr. Danny Jacobs, the new dean of medicine and provost at the University of Texas Medical Branch, is a big listener; a surgeon who is connected to science through life and the land; and a self-proclaimed “country boy from Arkansas.” Jacobs spends his free time outdoors, fishing, or with his wife, Nancy, and their three grown children — when there is free time.

During his first six months in his new role, Jacobs’ schedule has been packed. With the construction of a new hospital building in Galveston and the expansion of the medical branch’s mainland presence, he has been conducting a “listening tour.” The tour includes visits with staff and leadership to shape a vision for the medical branch in today’s accelerating high-tech world of medicine.
