David Agerter, M.D., is director of Academic Strategy and Development, Mayo Clinic Health System
David Agerter, M.D. (MED ’79, FM ’82), has been appointed as director of Mayo Clinic Health System Academic Strategy and Development — a newly created role. He’ll work to strengthen medical education and residency opportunities at Mayo’s Midwest clinics and hospitals, and will lead efforts to increase and diversify medical education in the health system.
“Enriching the academic environment across Mayo Clinic Health System benefits everyone,” says Bobbie Gostout, M.D. (OB/GYN ’07), vice president, Mayo Clinic. “Our providers and other care team members have additional opportunities for professional growth and development, and are able to pursue the passions that led them to a career in medicine. Even more importantly, our patients and communities benefit as we attract the brightest graduates in our medical residency programs and foster research that advances the science and creates the future of medicine.”
Dr. Agerter, an associate professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic and a member of the Executive Committee of the Mayo Clinic Alumni Association, has been regional vice president for the health system’s Southeast Minnesota region. A search will be conducted for a new regional vice president for the Southeast Minnesota region.
Dr. Agerter completed a family medicine residency and graduated from medical school at Mayo Clinic.
