Fries departing School of Medicine

By Staff

Robert Fries, associate dean for finance and administration, is leaving the University of Colorado School of Medicine effective May 13.

During his tenure with the dean's office since 2001, he has assisted school and department leaders with accommodating unprecedented reductions in the school's state support. He also has helped with the development of several new institutes and centers, and has participated on numerous university and campus-wide committees and work groups.

Fries is returning to ECG Management Consultants, where he will be working with academic medical centers and other major health care systems with governance and organizational design, business and strategic planning, and operations improvement.
