UNT Health Science Center has appointed a new dean to the UNT System College of Pharmacy.

Suresh Madhavan will take on his new role in Fort Worth after 31 years of working as an educator in West Virginia University.

“There are so many opportunities at UNTHSC, and I am excited by the outstanding leadership, commitment to improving lives and diversity of the faculty and student body,” Madhavan said in a statement. “There is so much to share and learn from each other.”

After earning a Ph.D. from Purdue University, Madhavan worked as an assistant professor at West Virginia University. For the last 25 years, he served as a professor and the chairperson at the Department of Pharmaceutical Systems and Policy at WVU.

“Pharmacists can work in so many areas. Apart from the traditional community and institutional settings, they can work in managed care environments, academia, the federal government and the pharmaceutical industry,” Madhavan said. “We need to help our students see and understand what the best fit is for them.”

Madhavan has received the Council of State Governments’ National Award for Innovation for his role in establishing the job of the pharmacist as an academic detailer.

“He [Madhavan] has a proven track record of successful leadership, a student-centric philosophy and is committed to our mission of creating solutions for a healthier community,” said Charles Taylor, Executive Vice President and Provost at UNTHSC.
