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 Darrell G. Kirch, MD, President and CEO, AAMC

Darrell G. Kirch, M.D.

As the former dean of two medical schools, I know firsthand the vitally important role each of you plays in today's academic medicine enterprise. 

From keeping the deans for whom you work up to date on common issues facing other institutions to facilitating daily communication with a wide range of constituents, faculty, and students (and countless other responsibilities in between), your work is critical in helping us prepare new generations of doctors.

The national professional organization supporting you in this multifaceted role, the Deans' Assistants Group (DAG), provides an invaluable national forum for professional development and networking.  Through its wide range of activities—including the fall meeting held in conjunction with the AAMC annual meeting—DAG provides an interactive learning environment for you to exchange ideas with colleagues regarding administrative, institutional, and national policy matters affecting medical education. 

Additionally, by enabling you to meet colleagues from medical schools nationwide, DAG affords a unique networking opportunity that not only promotes personal professional growth, but also helps foster inter-institutional cooperation.

With today's medical schools facing unprecedented opportunity and challenge, and the daily world of the medical school dean growing increasingly complex, the work you do is critically important in fulfilling our educational mission. 

 On behalf of the AAMC,

Darrell G. Kirch, MD
The Association of American Medical Colleges
