Information:

Dr. Gordon received a B.A. in Chemistry from Amherst College as well as a M.D. from Harvard Medical School. While at Harvard, he completed a vascular biology research fellowship with Dr. Karnovsky. Afterwards, Dr. Gordon completed an internal medicine internship at the University of Massachusetts (Worcester, MA), before training in anatomic pathology at the University of Washington in Seattle. Later, he joined the faculty at the University of Washington and worked as a human diagnostic and experimental cardiovascular pathologist.

Dr. Gordon was recruited to the University of Michigan in 1991. His clinical interests included the areas of human atherosclerosis biology and gene therapy for vascular diseases. In addition, he served as an Assistant Dean for Faculty Affairs for the Medical School. From 1997 to 2001, Dr. Gordon worked with Pfizer Cardiovascular Therapeutics' pre-clinical division where his group pursued further work on gene therapy for therapeutic angiogenesis. In March of 2001, Dr. Gordon returned to the University of Michigan Medical School to serve as Assistant Dean for Diversity and Career Development, and was concurrently a Professor of Pathology. On April 1, 2004, the university promoted Dr. Gordon to the position of Associate Dean for Diversity and Career Development, which accompanied his service as Professor of Pathology.

As the Associate Dean for Diversity and Career Development, David Gordon oversaw efforts to promote diversity within the Medical School. These efforts particularly focused on faculty and medical student recruitment and development, and on creating a new Minority Health Research Program for the Medical School. Dr. Gordon also worked with the pipeline programs to encourage high school and undergraduate minorities towards the various health professions. He also assisted the Associate Deans for Faculty Affairs (Dr. David Bloom) and Student Programs (Dr. Rachel Glick) in general issues which pertained to faculty and students.

On August 16, 2011, Dr. Gordon accepted the position as the new Dean of the School of Health Professions and Studies at the University of Michigan-Flint where he will continue to pursue and advance his work.
