Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information
||"MUSC currently has different pieces in place. What
we need is to develop a more tightly integrated core strategy
or system that will enable our staff to teach, conduct research
and deliver health care effectively."
Dr. Frank C. Clark earned his doctorate in mathematics from the University
of Georgia, where he later became director of academic computing and
a champion of faculty computer literacy. He has also served in CIO
positions at the University of Tennessee's Le Bonheur Children's Hospital
in Memphis and at the Baptist Healthcare System Kentucky in Louisville.
He comes to MUSC directly from his position as Senior Vice President
and CIO at Covenant Health Care in Knoxville.
His background in academic medicine allows him the opportunity to develop
and coordinate resources to support the academic, clinical, and research
strategies of the MUSC enterprise. Initially, he plans to meet faculty
and staff and study MUSC's work culture to identify specific issues
and priorities before addressing new initiatives.
