Chancellor Strom's leadership team is responsible for executing the vision for RBHS across functional units, focusing on academic excellence, diversity and inclusion, and cutting-edge health research.
The Way Forward
Our aim for the next five years is clear: to realize our collective vision of a multidisciplinary, multidimensional, and multifaceted organization in which the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts, and to embody this concept as the fundamental expression of the One RBHS identity.
History in the Making
In July 2013, Rutgers integrated with most of the units of the former University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, thereby establishing RBHS and positioning Rutgers as one of the country’s largest academic institutions to provide health sciences education, research, and clinical service and care.
This transformative growth continues, including the 2018 clinical affiliation between Rutgers and RWJBarnabas Health, through which we are building a world-class academic health system dedicated to life-changing research, clinical training of tomorrow’s workforce, and quality health care for all.
