Gordon Green


Executive Dean


Dr. Green completed his MD and pediatric residency training at UBC in Vancouver, Canada. He went on to practice Pediatric Emergency Medicine along with pursuing formal training in academic medicine.

He completed two academic teaching fellowships (UBC and WVU), two programs at the Harvard-Macy Institute, a Master’s in Education that focused on distance education methodologies, and a doctorate in education that concentrated on educational technology with a thesis that explored inter-professional team performance using a high-fidelity simulation model.

He has been the medical director for a large simulation center and created, delivered, evaluated training programs for undergraduate and graduate medical education programs along with those for nurse practitioner programs and EMTs. As practicing physician in pediatric emergency medicine, he taught/mentored undergraduate medical students, residents, and fellows.

He also served as the director of education for the emergency medicine department. He has developed, implemented, and evaluated innovative curricula at both the UME and GME levels.
