University of Florida Medical School Creates Faculty Ombuds Program

The UF College of Medicine announced the appointment of Dr. Keith Stone as its first Ombuds. Stone, a professor emeritus in the department of obstetrics and gynecology, will establish the Office of the Ombuds for Faculty on a part-time basis. Dr. Michael L. Good, Dean of the College of Medicine said, “I have full confidence in Dr. Stone’s ability to help faculty address problems through impartial listening, understanding and respect.”

Stone joined the UF College of Medicine faculty in 1988. He served as Department Chair for over two decades and received many awards for his teaching. Stone completed medical school training at the University of Virginia and did his residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. As a member of the Army Reserves, he was deployed for Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom. Later in his career, his focus shifted to the status of women in underdeveloped countries. In 2007 he served six months with Doctors Without Borders in West Africa. He continues to participate in international medical health care outreach programs in Latin America, and as a spokesperson for Doctors Without Borders.
