CEO and Dean, NYU Langone Health

Robert I. Grossman, MD, was named the Saul J. Farber Dean of NYU Grossman School of Medicine and chief executive officer of NYU Langone Health in July 2007. In this role, he oversees more than 40,000 faculty and staff members across seven inpatient locations and over 330 ambulatory sites throughout the New York region and in Florida. Most recently, NYU Langone completed a full-asset merger with Winthrop-University Hospital, now known as NYU Winthrop Hospital—one of Long Island’s top medical centers. Also part of NYU Langone are Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute–designated comprehensive cancer center, NYU Long Island School of Medicine and NYU Grossman School of Medicine, which since 1841 has trained thousands of physicians and scientists who have helped to shape the course of medical history. As dean of NYU School of Medicine, Dr. Grossman led the historic and unprecedented initiative of providing tuition-free medical education for all current and future students in its MD degree program. Dr. Grossman’s pivotal leadership was recently chronicled in World Class: A Story of Adversity, Transformation, and Success at NYU Langone Health, by William A. Haseltine.  Dr. Grossman received his BS in biology from Tulane University and his MD from the University of Pennsylvania. He is board certified in radiology and neuroradiology.
