Ellen J. MacKenzie Named Next Bloomberg School Dean

Ellen J. MacKenzie, an expert on improving trauma care systems and policy, has been named the 11th dean of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

A 9-month search reviewed hundreds of potential candidates before yielding MacKenzie, a Bloomberg School faculty member since 1979. MacKenzie spent her career studying the consequences of traumatic injuries, and her research has been “critical to improving the organization and performance of trauma care systems and to achieving better patient outcomes,” according to a Hopkins news article. MacKenzie leads a national research consortium of more than 50 major US trauma centers and top military medical facilities. It shares best practices and other information, helping wounded combat veterans and civilian trauma patients alike.

MacKenzie begins her tenure as Dean on October 1, succeeding Michael J. Klag, who has led the School since 2005.
