Bryant Murphy, MD, MBA, has been named Senior Associate Dean for Leadership Development within the UNC School of Medicine’s Office of Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development. In this role, Murphy will lead efforts to ensure comprehensive and coordinated leadership development and training opportunities for faculty, staff, and learners across the UNC School of Medicine.
Murphy will report to Julie Byerley, MD, MPH, Vice Dean for Academic Affairs, and work alongside Kim Boggess, MD, who was named Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs in July. These three leaders, along with the dedicated staff of the Office of Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development, work to support the professional and personal development of UNC School of Medicine faculty at all levels.
“We are thrilled to have Bryant join our already strong team in the Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development office,” said Byerley. “Dr. Murphy will help us expand our leadership development opportunities to include the learners in the med school as well as the residents and fellows in the hospital, and he will help us broaden what is currently offered to faculty and staff. His experience in clinical leadership, paired with his state and national leadership positions, brings a practical skill set desired by many in our SOM community.”
During his time at Duke as an undergraduate, the future Dr. Murphy attended the MED program at UNC before completing med school, residency, and fellowship at Wake Forest. He later earned an MBA at George Washington University.
Murphy first joined the faculty of the UNC School of Medicine’s Department of Anesthesiology in 2012, where he has held multiple leadership positions, serving as Division Chief for Specialty Anesthesia Care, as well as Vice Chair for Clinical Operations.
Murphy has an extensive record of leadership, both within his discipline and across the medical profession. He has previously served as President of the North Carolina Society of Anesthesiologists and currently serves as an Oral Board Examiner for the American Board of Anesthesiology. On Oct. 31, he will conclude his term on the North Carolina Medical Board. He was first appointed to the Board in 2014, and for the last year has served as the Board’s President. Over his six years, he has also been a leader in the Board’s work to respond to the Opioid crisis across North Carolina.
“I am so passionate about supporting others and helping them meet their potential as leaders,” said Murphy. “I look forward to working alongside the team in Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development and to supporting and advancing the leadership journey of individuals at all levels of their training and career.”
