HUNTINGTON, WV -

Darshana Shah, associate dean of faculty affairs and professional development with the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine at Marshall University, has been selected as chairwoman of the professional development and program subcommittee of the American Association of Medical Colleges' faculty affairs committee.

The appointment follows her election as an at-large representative to the GFA's steering committee earlier this year. 

Shah's latest appointment is for a three-year term. She is the first from Marshall to be elected to an AAMC steering committee.

In addition to her role as associate dean, Shah is a professor of pathology and is an active leader within numerous other professional and educational groups. She also serves as president of the Group for Research in Pathology Education, a national organization whose purpose is to promote and facilitate excellence in pathology education.

She has received several teaching awards and is the faculty adviser to the JCESOM's chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society, an international group dedicated to compassionate medical care.

Shah graduated from the University of Maryland with a master's degree in microbiology and earned her doctorate in biomedical sciences at West Virginia University before completing postdoctoral research work at the JCESOM.
