John Glick

Dr. John H. Glick has been appointed as Vice President of the University of Pennsylvania Health System and Associate Dean of the School of Medicine for Resource Development, effective immediately. “While stepping down from an extraordinary 21 years as head of the Abramson Cancer Center, it is John’s wish to continue his strong support of Penn Medicine by helping to increase external support for our many initiatives,” said Dr. Arthur H. Rubenstein.  

In this new role, Dr. Glick will report jointly to Dr. Rubenstein and Ralph W. Muller, UPHS CEO and work closely with the clinical chairs, Armando Chardiet and Susan Phillips on fundraising and advocacy to advance the resource base of Penn Medicine. He will continue to serve as President and Director of the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute.

“John has been an extraordinary ambassador for Penn for more then 30 years, as a physician treating thousands of patients and as a strong fundraiser for the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine along with his longstanding role in securing support of the Cancer Center. He is well recognized in Harrisburg and Washington, DC as an expert on the funding of cancer treatment and the broader purposes of Penn Medicine,” Dr. Rubenstein added.

Dr. Rubenstein concluded, “We are exceptionally pleased that John’s decision permits PENN Medicine to retain his exceptional skills as a clinician, scientist, leader and University citizen.”

Dr. Glick received his medical degree from Columbia University and is board certified in internal medicine and medical oncology. He is the Leonard and Madlyn Abramson Professor of Clinical Oncology and professor of medicine at the School of Medicine. Dr. Glick served as director of the Abramson Cancer Center since 1985.
