Michael E. Busha, MD, MBA, has been named interim assistant dean of career mentoring. In this interim role, Dr. Busha will oversee the school’s statewide career mentoring program, complementing his current position as associate dean for statewide system advancement, which he has held since early this year.

In his statewide role, Dr. Busha is responsible for advancing the school’s statewide framework for clinical leadership of clerkships that prepare students for residencies. His interim position fits nicely with his current duties, enabling him to be heavily involved in final preparations for this year’s successful match process.

In addition, Dr. Busha provides leadership to develop innovations to advance the performance outcomes of educational offices and venues throughout the IU School of Medicine statewide system. This includes strategies to further improve in areas such as student health services.

Since 2010, Dr. Busha has served as an assistant professor of clinical family medicine for the Department of Family Medicine. He also serves as an assistant dean for graduate medical education.

The role of assistant dean of career mentoring was previously held by Michael McKenna, MD, who left IU School of Medicine in early April to serve patients in a pediatrics practice on the north side of Indianapolis. IU School of Medicine thanks Dr. McKenna for his contributions in career mentoring and service to students.
