The Deans' Assistants Group (DAG)

The Deans' Assistants Group (DAG) represents the administrative/executive assistants to deans in colleges of medicine.

Our mission is to improve communication among all medical schools through networking and the Internet and, in the process, enable the deans to better achieve their goals.

A message from John E. Prescott, MD, FACEP, Chief Academic Officer, AAMC


As a former medical school dean, I know from experience the crucial role that you serve within the dean’s office, within your institutions, and within the academic medicine community.

By staying up to date on issues facing medical schools nationally, facilitating regular communication with a wide range of constituents, faculty, and students, and performing countless other responsibilities essential to the operations of the medical school, deans’ assistants are critical in helping academic medicine prepare future generations of physicians.

The Deans’ Assistants Group (DAG) provides an invaluable national forum for professional development and networking for individuals in these dynamic roles. Through its wide range of activities, DAG provides an interactive learning environment for you to exchange ideas with colleagues regarding administrative, institutional, and national policy matters affecting medical education, research, and patient care. By enabling you to meet colleagues from medical schools nationwide, DAG both promotes personal professional growth and helps foster inter-institutional cooperation.

Medical schools today face unprecedented opportunities and challenges, and the daily world of the medical school dean is growing increasingly complex – the continuing development and engagement of DAG members is key to ensuring that the nation’s medical schools can fulfill their individual missions.

On behalf of the AAMC,

John. E. Prescott, MD, FACEP
Chief Academic Officer
