Meet Mukesh K. Jain, physician-scientist, dog lover, and the eighth dean of medicine at Brown.
Who is Mukesh K. Jain, MD? Brown President Christina H.

His CV says he’s a cardiologist and physician-scientist who has spent his career aligning clinical, academic, and research missions for a major teaching hospital. His family and colleagues say he’s a generous, modest, and thoughtful consensus builder who makes everything “seem possible” whenever he’s around.
