Southlake-based CareerPhysician LLC, a national leader in executive search and academic leadership development in child health, announced that Bruce Rubin, M.D. has been added to the Child Health Advisory Council, an advisory group of senior and emeritus chiefs and chairs who mentor and guide the next generation of child health leaders.
Rubin is an expert in pediatric medicine and board-certified pediatric pulmonologist who brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the CHAC, CareerPhysician said.
“We are honored to welcome Dr. Rubin as the newest member of the council,” Bruder Stapleton, M.D., chair of the CHAC, said in a statement. “His expertise and passion for advancing child health align perfectly with our mission and his insights will be invaluable as we continue to focus on supporting up-and-coming child health leaders.”
Rubin is professor and chair emeritus of pediatrics at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he previously was the chair of the Department of Pediatrics and physician in chief of the children’s hospital.
He also is a professor of biomedical engineering and is active in teaching and research at the VCU College of Engineering.
Before VCU, Rubin was a professor and vice chair for research at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, among many other academic research leadership roles.
As a council member at the CHAC, Rubin will contribute his expertise to guide initiatives that promote leadership best practices, cultivate positive cultures in academic and child health departments, enhance medical education, and ultimately, improve healthcare delivery for pediatric patients, CareerPhysician said.
“It’s a joy to join this respected group of council members who have all had a positive impact by guiding child health leaders across the country,” Rubin said in a release. “We want to ensure today’s leaders have the opportunity to learn from past successes and challenges and have a sounding board for advice as they navigate their leadership roles. With this level of partnership and support, we can help leaders avoid burnout and maintain a focus on advancing the future of pediatric medicine.”
