Transitions occur in Graduate Medical Education leadership at Penn State Hershey

Graduate Medical Education (GME) at Penn State Hershey has a new leader-partnership. Drs. Ted Bollard and Don Flemming will team together to lead GME efforts to the next level, effective May 1. Bollard will serve as the associate dean for GME and the designated institutional official. Flemming will serve as the associate designated institutional official and chair of the Graduate Medical Education Council.

Bollard and Flemming replace Dr. Ronald Domen, who recently stepped down from his GME leadership duties to focus on leading new departmental and health system pathology initiatives.

Bollard, a professor of medicine, completed his residency and chief residency at Penn State Hershey. He served as the associate residency program director for the Department of Medicine and became the program director in 2001. He completed the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine executive leadership program in 2010, and in 2011 his educational leadership responsibilities broadened when he was appointed vice chair for educational affairs in the Department of Medicine. 

Flemming, professor of radiology and orthopaedics and rehabilitation, has been a radiology residency program director for 17 years. He serves as the vice chair for education in the Department of Radiology and holds the G. Victor Rohrer Professorship for Radiologic Education. He has the recent honor of being chosen to serve on the Residency Review Committee for Diagnostic Radiology. Flemming completed his radiology residency training at the National Naval Medical Center and fellowship education in musculoskeletal radiology at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. He retired from the U.S. Navy at the rank of Captain in 2005 and came to Penn State Hershey to further his commitment to radiology and medical education.
