The leading cancer research and treatment center in Houston has appointed Janet M. Bruner, MD, to the staff of its Ombuds Office. Bruner has been a faculty member at MDACC for 28 years, including 12 years as Pathology chair and continued service as deputy head of the Division of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. She will serve as a part-time Ombuds and joins Bill Brock and Rita Burns in the MDACC Ombuds Office.
Meanwhile, the search for a new director of the office continues. Bruner recently completed the IOA course, Foundations of Organizational Ombudsman Practice, and plans to complete 40 hours of mediation training later this year. She earned her bachelor’s and a master’s degrees from the University of Toledo, and her MD at the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo. After completing a residency in anatomic and clinical pathology and being chosen chief resident at the Medical College of Ohio Hospital, she came to Houston in 1982 for a two-year fellowship in neuropathology at Baylor College of Medicine.
