Kimberly Brown joined Dell Medical School in January 2017 as the inaugural associate chair of education in the Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care. She oversees undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education in the department and serves as the clerkship director for the Dell Medical School core clerkship in surgery.

Brown is a fellowship-trained surgical oncologist with a clinical focus on tumors of the liver, pancreas, GI tract and melanoma. She completed fellowships in surgical oncology at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, and minimally invasive liver and pancreas surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. She works closely with medical oncologists, gastroenterologists, radiation oncologists, patients and families to develop treatment plans that align with the patient’s goals of care.

As part of the education leadership team at Dell Med, Brown has helped create educational programs incorporating the unique mission elements of Dell Med: value-based care, leadership and collaborative practice. Her academic interests include establishing frameworks for safe autonomy in trainees and integrating personalized risk assessments into decision-making for oncology patients.
