Cleveland University-Kansas City (CUKC) has announced Dr. Jon Wilson as dean of the University's College of Chiropractic. Wilson takes over the new post after serving as the College's assistant dean of chiropractic education. In his new role, Wilson oversees all of the clinical, academic, and administrative aspects of the Doctor of Chiropractic degree program.
Dr. Cheryl Carpenter-Davis, vice president of academic affairs at the University, announced Wilson's new role on March 1.
"He has served as assistant dean over the past two years, led the Electronic Health Record conversion initiative and the implementation of ExamSoft assessment software," Carpenter-Davis said. "Both of those projects have propelled the program to a new level of using data to inform improvement. We are very excited to have Dr. Wilson leading Cleveland's College of Chiropractic as we approach the 100-year anniversary of the institution."
Wilson earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland and was in private practice for eight years after graduation. He began his career at CUKC in 2011, joining the Cleveland faculty as a clinical educator. Since that time, he has taken on additional responsibilities in educational technology at CUKC, including directing the launch and integration of Force Sensing Table Technology (FSTT) on campus in 2017. The FSTT is a chiropractic adjusting table that electronically monitors the amount of force applied by the user during a chiropractic adjustment.
Wilson is pleased to take on this new role at CUKC.
"It is an honor to be a part of the CUKC community," Wilson said. "We have an amazing group of dedicated administrators, inspired faculty, and compassionate and driven students. I look forward to continuing to support all of the members of the community, and to build on the rich tradition of the chiropractic program. Our students are the future of our profession, and the work we do daily, as a group, builds the foundation for their success."
