The CHIP team is excited to announce that interim Director, Dr. David Gotz will be taking on the CHIP Director position permanently.  Since September 2023, Dr. Gotz has been the acting interim director for the program.   From the outset, he quickly demonstrated his excitement and commitment to the CHIP program, students, staff and faculty.  Dr. Gotz has helped to lead several programmatic and process improvements in the short period of time he has been in his role, including advocating and helping to secure a standing faculty committee for CHIP to support the curriculum and admissions processes , executing a CHIP faculty retreat that generated several ideas for improvement to the CHIP program and he has worked to establish a formal collaboration with UNC School of Data Science. The School of Data Science will now become a member of the CHIP consortium (joining the School of Information and Library Science, 5 health affairs schools, Grad School, and Health Sciences Library). Commenting on his new role and continuing to work with the CHIP staff, Gotz said, "The year ahead promises to be an exciting one with many opportunities for us to continue pushing CHIP forward. I’m energized by the work we’ve done in just the last few months, and I can’t wait to continue our work together."
