Palmer College’s West campus in San Jose, Calif., announces the appointment of Gregory Snow, D.C., as the new dean of Academic Affairs.
Dr. Snow succeeds Thomas Souza, D.C., DACBSP®, who served as the academic dean at the West campus since 2003, and recently transitioned from his administration role to a faculty position.
A 1990 Palmer West graduate, Dr. Snow has served as the dean of West clinics since 2003. He maintained a private practice from 1990 to 2003, and was a Palmer faculty-clinician for seven years (1997-2003). He is a past-president of the Palmer West Associated Student Government, and also served as president of the former Palmer West Alumni Association.
In his role as dean of clinics, Dr. Snow managed oversight of all clinic-related programs (including the campus-based public-clinic, five outreach clinics, Sports Council events, and Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs clerkships) as well as the West campus field-training and postgraduate programs.
“I’m honored and excited about my new role, and I look forward to serving the College and students in a different capacity. After 23 years in clinical education, I look forward to managing the challenges and opportunities in the academic division” said Dr. Snow, the author of multiple articles in peer-reviewed publications, who also serves as a peer-reviewer for four scientific journals.
“Dr. Snow has served Palmer with great distinction at each stage of his career with the College, from student to administrator. We’re pleased to see Dr. Snow step into this new role, and I’m confident he will impact the Palmer West academic program with equal excellence,” said West Campus President Bill Meeker, D.C., M.P.H., F.P.A.C.
A search will initiate shortly to identify Dr. Snow’s successor as the dean of West clinics. During the interim period, Dr. Snow will work collaboratively with Kyle Prusso, D.C., CCSP®, director of Clinics, and Brian Nook, D.C., associate dean of Academic Affairs, to manage both the academic and clinic divisions.
