Dr. Mitchell Moses Selected as Associate Dean for Clinical Relations for LMU-CVM
Lincoln Memorial University-College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM) is pleased to welcome Dr. Mitchell Moses as the associate dean for Clinical Relations and Outreach. Moses will continue to advance the innovative, hybrid distributive clinical education model at LMU-CVM. He will work with clinical affiliates across the country to place well-qualified fourth-year veterinary students in their practice for real-world, hands-on learning experiences.
“Dr. Moses brings to the position an expertise in preparing our students to excel as future veterinary professionals,” said LMU-CVM Vice President and Dean Jason Johnson. “He has consistently created programs that have given back to the veterinary industry, operates with credibility, future visioning, and a value add no nonsense approach. His vision for the distributive learning model will continue to impact not only LMU, but the veterinary profession for years to come. I am so excited to welcome him to the LMU team.”
Prior to LMU, Moses served as the chief operating officer for the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) where he restructured the organization to improve alignment and accountability and led the AAHA Healthy Workplace Culture Initiative, and the Re-Imagining Accreditation project. Before joining AAHA, Moses worked for Pfizer Animal Health/Zoetis and held five roles ranging from field veterinarian to the director of a team of 38 veterinarians who supported the sales organization. Prior to his employment with Pfizer Animal Health/Zoetis, Moses practiced companion animal veterinary medicine. He also owned and operated his own veterinary clinic as well as a relief services corporation. He has worked in emergency medicine and has helped develop and sell veterinary practice management software.
Moses is a graduate of the University of Dallas with a Master of Business Administration in Organization Development. He received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree as well as a bachelor’s degrees in veterinary science and range science from Texas A&M University. He is a senior certified professional by the Society of Human Resource Management. Outside of work, Moses is an avid volunteer and is looking forward to opportunities to serve in the community.
“There are two very wonderful things about being a veterinary doctor,” said Moses. “The first is you get to help people by helping their pets. Secondly, the career options for veterinarians are almost infinite, which has satisfied my need for variety. In my last two roles and my current role, I help people by helping veterinarians (current or future) get better at helping pets. To me, that is very cool.”
