Linda E. Hyman, PhD
Associate Provost
Boston University School of Medicine, Graduate Medical Sciences

PhD, Brandeis University
MS, Brandeis University

Dr. Linda Hyman assumed the position of Associate Provost for the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences in 2009. She formerly served as Vice Provost for Health Science at Montana State University and Director of the WWAMI Medical Education Program. There, she also acted as Assistant Dean for Regional Affairs at the University of Washington School of Medicine. An accomplished and active scientist with expertise in molecular genetics, Dr. Hyman holds the appointment of Professor of Microbiology at GMS. Dr. Hyman earned her undergraduate degree at the State University of New York at Albany, followed by a master’s and doctoral degree at Brandeis University. She also completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Tufts University School of Medicine. She then began her professional career at Tulane University School of Medicine, where she became a tenured associate professor in 2003. Dr. Hyman’s priorities outside of her role as associate provost and professor include advising and professional development for students and post-docs.
