Following the retirement of esteemed team member Paula Dessaur Wilson, MD, Trinity School of Medicine is proud to welcome Marc T Zubrow, MD, FACP, FCCP, FCCM to the Trinity faculty and administration as professor of internal medicine and senior associate dean of clinical clerkships.

Dr. Zubrow will help guide Trinity students during their rotations in Baltimore, Maryland, providing his knowledge and experience on everything from the practical know-how of medicine to developing technology in healthcare and planning for success during the residency match. 

A graduate of University of Pennsylvania and Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, PA., Dr. Zubrow completed his internal medicine residency at the Lankenau Hospital in Philadelphia. He went on to complete a fellowship in pulmonary medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. He is certified in internal medicine and pulmonary and critical care. 

Dr. Zubrow's thirty year career is built on the foundation of the practice of pulmonary and critical care while always striving to break new ground for the communities he serves. Leadership experience includes serving as director of MICU at Christiana Hospital, ICU at Wilmington Hospital, and many other clinical teams, receiving national recognition for his work.

Prior to joining Trinity, Dr. Zubrow was associate professor of medicine and vice president of tele-medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. In addition to his academic duties, he led the development and implementation of the University of Maryland eCare program, providing critical care coverage to 11 hospitals throughout the state of Maryland. He has also co-authored 50+ scientific papers and abstracts. 

Dr. Zubrow has served as ACCP governor for the state of Delaware as well as on a variety of committees at both local and national levels. He was the chairperson of the tele-ICU committee for the Society of Critical Care Medicine 2012-2013. He is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, American College of Chest Physicians, and American College of Critical Care Medicine. He has been honored with several teaching awards and clinical excellence recognition, as well as being listed in the, "Best Doctors in America." and named by Healthleaders Magazine as one of the "20 People Who Are Meeting Challenges to Make Healthcare Better."

We're proud and excited to have Dr. Zubrow joining our team. At the same time, we want to wish a very fond farewell to outgoing associate dean of clinical clerkships Dr. Dessaur Wilson. Her impact on the students during her time at Trinity in clinical clerkships cannot be over-stated. In the past five years alone, you would be hard pressed to find a single graduate or member of the administration that does not hold Dr. Dessaur Wilson in the highest regard as an educator, mentor, colleague, and dear friend.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Zubrow and wishing Dr. Dessaur Wilson the absolute best in her retirement.

Trinity School of Medicine Welcomes New Dean Dr. Linda Adkison as Dr. Skelton Focuses on Chancellorship

As Trinity School of Medicine continues to grow, so must the administration guiding that growth, ensuring the depth and breadth of quality scales with it. To that end, we are very excited to announce that Dr. Skelton is transitioning to focus on his role as chancellor and we are proud to welcome the eminently qualified Dr. Linda Adkison as dean. 



Previously, Dr. Skelton held both positions himself, noting: "My initial plan was to serve as chancellor and dean through Trinity's obtaining accreditation by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Medicine and the Health professions (CAAM-HP) and then assist in identifying my successor. I am extremely pleased that Dr. Linda Adkison, a colleague from my Mercer days with extensive medical education, medical research, and medical administrative experience has agreed to join us as dean and relocate to St. Vincent. With this change, I will continue as chancellor to assist Dr. Adkison, and to work with her, President Wilson, and the Board of Trustees to continue the establishing of Trinity as a leading international medical school."
