Houston-Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) has named Timothy Stout, MD, PhD, as its new ophthalmology department chairman.
A graduate of BCM, Dr. Stout had been serving as vice president for commercialization strategies and as a professor of ophthalmology and molecular genetics at Oregon Health and Sciences University.
“With a proven track record and excellent leadership skills, Dr. Tim Stout is the ideal choice to chair the ophthalmology department,” said Paul E. Klotman, MD, president and chief executive officer of BCM. “He understands BCM and our strategic vision for the future in patient care, research, and education.”
Dr. Stout received both his medical degree and doctorate from BCM. His appointment is effective in December, as he will succeed Dan Jones, MD, who is retiring after serving as chairman for more than 30 years.
“I’m very much looking forward to returning home to Baylor and the Cullen Eye Institute,” Dr. Stout said. “Danny Jones has set an incredible standard and I look forward to helping shape the future of the department.”
