Associate Dean's Message - January 9, 2023

Student Healthcare Focus Group is coming up. Consider participating.

Dear GSBS Community,

Welcome to 2023! I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable break and spent quality time with family and friends. As we start the new year, I want to bring two items to your attention.

We have had many discussions regarding the cost of health care and the student health insurance plan. One item under consideration is to create a student health clinic on the Boston campus, similar to what is available in Medford. Students would be able to use this clinic for routine medical concerns rather than paying a co-pay to a private provider. To assess the feasibility of such a clinic, we are working with an outside consultant who is holding focus groups to receive feedback and input from students. A focus group session for GSBS students will be held on Monday, January 23rd at 3:00 PM via Zoom. As we can accommodate only a limited number of students in the focus group, please register for the focus group on health care.

In response to receiving many listings for postdoc openings and other jobs, we will be starting a bi-weekly “Career and Professional Development” newsletter. In addition to listing professional development events, this newsletter will contain job listings and other resources. The newsletter will be sent every other Wednesday beginning this week. Please email Alex Israel any announcements or job listings you would like included.

Dan Volchok, Associate Dean
