Dean named for planned osteopathic school at Marian

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Marian University in Indianapolis has named the founding dean of an Atlanta-area medical school to head up the school for osteopathic doctors it plans to open in 2012.

Paul Evans has been dean and chief academic officer for six years of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Suwanee, Ga. In his new position, he will lead efforts by the private Catholic university to establish Indiana's second medical school.

As IBJ reported in January, the move is an effort to stem the state's shortage of primary care physicians.

Marian officials announced in January plans for the new school that they say could enroll 150 students in the first class. Construction hasn't yet started on the school.

Osteopathic doctors have similar training to traditional physicians, but also are trained in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal problems.
