Miller tapped for UE program


The Washington Times-Herald

---- — Former Washington resident, Dr. Kristy K. (Michael) Miller has been appointed to lead the new direct entry Baccalaureate to Doctor of Medicine (B/MD) program at the University of Evansville. The University of Evansville is the first private university in Indiana to establish a partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine. Students admitted into the University of Evansville B/MD program are guaranteed provisional admission into IU School of Medicine-Evansville upon graduation from UE.

Leading the program, Miller will work closely with the Dr. Steve Becker, director and associate dean Indiana University School of Medicine- Evansville, as well as other medical school faculty and local physicians to develop various initiatives for the new program such as internships, student to student mentor programs, leadership courses and various ancillary opportunities associated with the program. Miller says that the new B/MD program is a “great opportunity for the University of Evansville, especially in light of the anticipation of the new IU School of Medicine Academic Health Science and Research Center to be built in downtown Evansville by 2017. I consider it an honor to be appointed to lead the program.”

Miller is in her tenth year as a professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Evansville and is in her third year as chair of the department. Miller also serves on several committees and boards in the Evansville community including the Koch Family Children’s Museum of Evansville and the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program selection committee.
