Gold has served at the University of Toledo since 2005 and has full leadership responsibility of the clinical, education and research programs of the university’s health sciences, the faculty practice plan and the clinical delivery system. He was key in the 2006 merger of the University of Toledo and Medical University of Ohio, bringing broad groups of stakeholders together around a common mission. Gold has facilitated the development of three interdisciplinary degree-granting schools within the University of Toledo: the School of Biomarker Research and Individual Medicine, the School of Interprofessional Education and Advanced Human Performance, and the School of Health Care Innovation and Business Excellence.
As part of a university-wide capital campaign, Gold has established multiple named professorships, laboratories and hospital/ambulatory facilities. The health sciences now account for roughly half of all university-wide annual giving, several fold what they were ten years ago.
Gold graduated from the Cornell University College of Engineering, where he majored in theoretical and applied mechanics and graduated top in his class. He earned his M.D. from the Weill Cornell College of Medicine and completed his general surgery residency at The New York Hospital and Memorial Hospital where he served at the administrative chief resident; and his cardiothoracic residency training at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital of Harvard Medical School.
Prior to joining the University of Toledo, Gold served at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Weill Cornell Medical College. His areas of interest include academic health system leadership development, development and implementation of national health care policy, access to higher education and health care, enhancing diversity in higher education and academic health care, and patient safety and patient-centered program development. He has strong interest in interprofessional education and advanced simulation overseeing the planning of a remarkable advanced simulation center.
