I am delighted to announce that Angelique Redus-McCoy, MD, assistant professor of Pediatrics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and an alumna of the school, has been appointed as Assistant Dean of Student Affairs to serve as the Robbins Society Dean.
All incoming School of Medicine students are assigned to an academic society, helping students master the academic and professional skills required to be a physician. Deans of each society provide academic, career, and personal advising; help students find mentors; write letters of recommendation for research grants and fellowships; and teach medical professionalism skills.
After earning her MD degree at the School of Medicine in 2001, Redus-McCoy completed residency training in pediatrics at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. She was appointed as a general pediatrician at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital serving as section head for the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Health Center.
After serving the community for ten years, she moved to the University of Virginia (UVA) as an academic general pediatrician, coach and facilitator for the UVA Foundations of Clinical Medicine course, and faculty advisor for the Student National Medical Association Discover Medicine Outreach Program. While at UVA, she served on a number of medical school committees including the Academic Standards and Advancement Committee, the Admissions Committee and the Diversity Consortium.
She returned to Cleveland in 2019 to continue her career as an academic general pediatrician at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. Redus-McCoy has been an invited speaker on racism and bias in medicine and has most recently served as rotation director of Ambulatory General Pediatrics for the Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital Pediatric Residency Program.
Redus-McCoy will join our Student Affairs team led by Steven Ricanati, associate dean of Student Affairs. Please join me in welcoming her as the new dean for the Robbins Society.
