GRAND FORKS, N.D.—University of North Dakota Vice President for Health Affairs and Dean of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences Joshua Wynne was honored recently as a Legend of Michigan Cardiology at the 25th Annual Meeting of the Michigan Chapter of the American College of Cardiology.
Wynne was recognized for his tenure as chief of cardiology at Wayne State University in Detroit from 1984 to 1997. "As chief of cardiology, they found an up-and-coming star," the Michigan chapter said in the award announcement. "In turn, he recruited a team of the brightest and best young physicians to join him at the Detroit Medical Center. Dr. Wynne later saw the need for focused training in business and health care management to meet the complexities of a rapidly changing medical field."
Wynne is a 1971 graduate of Boston University, magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, and MD graduate of the same school, also magna cum laude and Alpha Omega Alpha, the national honor medical society. He completed his internal medicine residency and cardiology fellowship at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, and spent the subsequent six years at the Harvard University-affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital. He also holds an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago and an M.P.H. degree in Health Management and Policy from the School of Public Health, University of Michigan. He served in the United States Army as a battalion surgeon while stationed in the Republic of Korea from 1973 to 1975. Wynne has been vice president for Health Affairs and dean of the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences since 2010.
