Loyola University Chicago has named Sam Marzo, M.D., dean of its Stritch School of Medicine.

“We are confident that Dr. Marzo will continue to shape and grow the Stritch School of Medicine,” says Norberto Grzywacz, Ph.D., Loyola University Chicago provost and chief academic officer. “With Jesuit values as part of his moral foundation, Dr. Marzo will be a steward of the relationship between Loyola and our academic medical center partner and will be a leader when facing the challenges and embracing the opportunities that we must approach together.”

A Stritch alumnus and professor, Marzo has served as interim dean since December 2018. He chaired the Head and Neck Surgery Division of the Department of Otolaryngology at Loyola University Health System and held a variety of staff appointments at LUHS. He serves on the LUHS Board of Trustees and is a member of the Integrated Clinical Leadership Team, the executive clinical leadership group of LUHS. He is active in multiple Loyola committees, including the Loyola Clinical Leadership Council, Perioperative Executive Committee and Medical Executive Committee.

Prior to joining the Stritch school staff full time in 1999, he was a clinical assistant professor at Vanderbilt University.

“I look forward to charting a long-term growth path for Stritch, including identifying new funding streams and expanding our philanthropic initiatives to serve Stritch and the broader Loyola University Chicago community,” Marzo says. “As a proud Stritch alum, I am humbled by the opportunity to serve a school that formed me into the physician and person I am today.”
