Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education Named

Dear Colleagues:

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that I announce the appointment of Chad S. Miller, M.D., as the new Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education. The position of Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education is new to Saint Louis University School of Medicine, and in this role Dr. Miller will lead all facets of our undergraduate medical education program.

Dr. Miller obtained his undergraduate degree from Yale University in 1999 and his doctorate of medicine from Tulane University in 2004. He completed his training in internal medicine at the same institution in 2007. Dr. Miller has a wealth of education experience from his first faculty position at Tulane University, where he served as course director for numerous student experiences and as the associate program director for the internal medicine residency program.  

In June 2015, he joined Saint Louis University School of Medicine as a hospitalist and director of the Division of General Internal Medicine. He joined the dean’s staff in October 2016 as the Assistant Dean for Curricular Affairs. Dr. Miller serves on the LCME Steering Committee, chairs the LCME curricular affairs working group, and is a member of the LCME documentation and central oversight working groups.  

Dr. Miller has been recognized with numerous awards, including membership in Alpha Omega Alpha, and no less than 17 teaching awards in his relatively short career. In addition, he has mentored students, residents and faculty and is frequently sought for his sage advice. While at Tulane University, he was an integral team member for a successful LCME accreditation. In addition, he has published numerous peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, abstracts and delivered well-received national presentations.

Dr. Miller is a native of the St. Louis area who graduated from Lafayette High School. He resides in Clarkson Valley with his wife, Ginger, and children, Annabelle, Wesley and Georgia. In his limited free time, Dr. Miller enjoys coaching his children in various sports, running Spartan Races and playing the piano. He is an enthusiastic and loyal St. Louis Cardinals fan.  

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Chad S. Miller as our new Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education. I have tremendous confidence in his ability to lead our program forward and place us among national leaders in medical education.

Best wishes,

 Kevin E. Behrns, M. D.
