In his health affairs role, he also serves as a key advisor and esteemed practitioner responsible for the health and wellbeing of the Rutgers community.

Under Chancellor Strom's guidance, RBHS has established a new model for health care and community service, and has grown to become one of the most respected academic health centers in the nation by providing opportunities, driving innovation, and improving lives.

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.
