Ralph I. Horwitz, M.D., appointed dean at CASE in January 2003, is internationally known for his pioneering research that helped to establish the field of clinical investigation and outcomes research; for his distinguished leadership in reinvigorating the Department of Medicine at Yale; for his innovative programs in the education of physicians and the training of physician scientists; and his visionary renewal of the social contract linking the practice of medicine to the civic responsibility of the profession of medicine.

Horwitz joined the faculty at Yale in 1978 and has served as co-director of the Yale Clinical Scholars Program for 25 years. Under his leadership, research funding in Yale's department of medicine more than doubled. In his professional research, he has made numerous contributions.  Horwitz and his colleagues conducted landmark studies investigating the relationship of estrogen to the risk of breast and uterine cancer, aspirin to the risk of Reye's Syndrome in children and, most recently, the effects of phenylpropanolamine found in over-the-counter diet pills and cough and cold products on the risk of brain hemorrhage in young adults.

Horowitz received his medical degree from Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, trained in internal medicine at McGill University and the Massachusetts General Hospital, and was a research fellow in the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program at Yale.
