The Council of Departmental Chairs (CDC) directs its deliberations primarily to program formulation and implementation in the College of Medicine and advises the Dean on all matters which it considers significantly related to the efficient and effective function of the College’s administrative and academic missions.  One of the main goals of the CDC is to keep its members informed broadly about college level, campus and University events of importance.
