Dr. Peter Layde to Serve as Ombudsman for Medical College

Sept. 23, 2011

Peter Layde, M.D., M. Sc., professor of emergency medicine, associate chair for global and public health, and co-director of the Injury Research Center, has been named the first Ombudsman of The Medical College of Wisconsin. The role of an Ombuds is to serve as a confidential, impartial and informal resource for faculty, staff physicians, postdoctoral fellows and staff with whom to voice concerns. The Ombuds also provides information on institutional policies and practices, assists in examining alternatives and solutions and identifies proper resources to help resolve situations.

Dr. Layde joined the Medical College faculty in 1993 as a professor in the department of family and community medicine and the Health Policy Institute. An accomplished researcher, he has more than 25 years of experience conducting epidemiological research, primarily in the area of injury control and has authored more than 160 papers. Prior to joining the Medical College, Dr. Layde was Director of the Division of Chronic Disease Control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, and Chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Marshfield Clinic.

Dr. Layde is a long-standing educator at the Medical College, and directs courses in epidemiology, injury research and prevention, and health policy. He is a member of the American College of Epidemiology, the American College of Preventive Medicine, and the American Epidemiological Society.

John R. Raymond, Sr., MD, CEO and President of the Medical College, believes the newly formed Office of the Ombuds fills a critical need with regard to transparency, confidentiality, cultural sensitivity and organizational stewardship.

“Our ongoing commitment to collaboration, cooperation and the highest standards of education, research and care will be strengthened considerably by the addition of a dedicated Ombuds position,” said Dr. Raymond.

“I am excited that under Dr. Layde’s leadership, he will work to ensure our faculty and staff have the tools they need to achieve their goals within a supportive environment.”

Dr. Layde will continue his current work in global and public health at the Medical College. His appointment is effective October 15, 2011.
