Dr. Andrea Amalfitano is the dean of Michigan State University’s prestigious College of Osteopathic Medicine.

“It's humbling and also thrilling at the same time to know that the faculty and staff of the college have enough confidence in me to proceed forward as the permanent dean,” says Amalfitano. “The other faculty and staff at the university and other deans have been tremendously supportive. Our alumni, our external partners, the Michigan Osteopathic Association, and a number of groups outside of the college all came together. I feel like I have the support of thousands as we go forward to produce the best physicians in the country.”
