Executive Leadership Council

Guiding Our Success

The Executive Leadership Council (ELC) is comprised of an esteemed group of community leaders who support the mission of the Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Allopathic Medicine (NSU MD), advise the Dean on pertinent issues, and serve as ambassadors for the college.

The ELC has three priorities

  • Advise - Provide advice and counsel on NSU MD matters for which the Dean seeks assistance. This may include such issues as strategic planning and assessment, enhancing academic standards and performance, and more.
  • Support - Regard NSU MD as a philanthropic priority
  • Connect - Build relationships with individuals and organizations whose missions align with the college
