Located in one of the fastest growing areas in the United States, the University of Miami School of Medicine sits poised to capitalize on an expanding hemispheric economy. At the same time, the school must also accommodate a burgeoning competition for Medicare patients with for-profit hospitals. At the helm of the University of Miami School of Medicine is John G. Clarkson. Clarkson had served as chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute and medical director of the Anne Bates Leach Eye Hospital from 1991 to 1995, when he became dean. He replaced Dean Bernard Fogel who held the position for 14 years. Interviewed in his office in sunny Miami, Clarkson discussed Miami's approach to expanding the school's foreign and domestic patient base, developing alliances, and trying to increase the medical center's profile amongst an increasingly diverse population.
