Laura Mosqueda, MD, Dean of the Keck School of Medicine of USC, is a widely respected authority on geriatric and family medicine, elder abuse, and care of the underserved. She is also an expert on medical education curricula design, development and implementation. With responsibility for a teaching staff of 4000+ who educate over 1800 students and train more than 900 resident physicians in over 50 specialties or sub-specialties, Mosqueda said she is eager to tackle the challenges facing USC head-on. "Honesty and humility are the two elements that make a good doctor, and that’s what is needed to heal the university and move beyond its current troubles."
