U names new chief medical officer

By and

Thomas L. Miller was named the chief medical officer of university hospitals and clinics last week.

Miller has served as executive director of the ambulatory clinics and as an associate professor of internal medicine at the U’s School of Medicine since 2003.

Miller is taking over for Neil K. Kochenour, professor emeritus of obstetrics and gynecology, who retired from the position in June.

“Dr. Miller has the ability to deal with difficult situations and provide the best care and protection for the patient,” said Gordon Crabtree, interim chief executive officer of the U’s hospitals and clinics.

“We are very fortunate to have him here to serve in this position,” Crabtree said.

After graduating from Colorado College, where he received his bachelor’s degree, Miller received his medical degree from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. He completed his internship and residency at the U, where he served as chief resident of internal medicine.
