OSU Center for Health Sciences announces organizational changes

Dr. Stanley E. Grogg, D.O., interim president and dean of OSU Center for Health Sciences and College of Osteopathic Medicine, announces the following leadership changes.

Kayse Shrum, D.O., has been named interim Vice President of Academic Affairs. Dr. Shrum will continue as Chair of the Pediatrics department, her previous position. As part of this transition, the Telemedicine/Medical Infomatics department will now report through Dr. Shrum.

“Dr. Shrum has shown tremendous leadership through her role as chair of the Pediatrics department,” says Dr. Grogg. “Part of her new role will be driving our efforts to update our medical school curriculum and strengthen our practice plan. She is an effective relationship builder, leading by example, as well as an outstanding clinician. I am excited to have her in this new role.”

Jenny Alexopulos, D.O., will serve as Associate Dean of Clinical Services, with clinical chairs continuing to report to her. In her role, she will spearhead growth of our clinic system.  “Dr. Alexopulos is a focused, mission-driven leader, and the right person to help bring new life to our clinics,” Dr. Grogg says.

Dr. Grogg also announced plans to renew the institution’s focus on donor development and alumni relations, and has added Ryan Miller, director of alumni affairs, as a direct report. “Ryan has a lot of fans in our alumni population and has done an outstanding job of keeping them involved during difficult times. I know he will continue to be an enthusiastic ambassador for our university,” says Dr. Grogg.
