Lloyd, DVM, Ph.D., college officials announced today.
Dr. Lloyd most recently served as associate dean for budget, planning and institutional research at Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. He replaces Glen Hoffsis, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVIM, who is retiring.
Dr. James Lloyd will be the sixth permanent dean of the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
"I am confident that our internationally recognized veterinary college, hospitals and clinics will flourish under Dr. Lloyd’s leadership,” said David S. Guzick, M.D., Ph.D., senior vice president for health affairs at UF and president of the UF Shands Health System. "He brings a wealth of expertise to our team.”
The university's sixth permanent dean was chosen after a search led by Teresa A. Dolan, DDS, MPH, the dean of UF’s College of Dentistry, and John P. Hayes, Ph.D., the research dean at the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
"I am particularly excited by his vision to position the College of Veterinary Medicine at the forefront of efforts to link health sciences, agricultural sciences and veterinary medicine to address some of the most important issues facing our society,” Hayes said of Lloyd. "He brings a tremendous set of skills to the table.”
Lloyd, who will start his new job in July, called UF "an outstanding institution with a core of exceptional faculty, staff and students.”
"Together with the leadership team, I look forward to working with both internal and external stakeholders to build on the college’s existing strengths in research, teaching and service, and to expand the college’s recognition as a respected leader in academic veterinary medicine,” he said.
While at Michigan State, Lloyd maintained joint appointments as a professor in the departments of large animal clinical sciences and agricultural economics and as an adjunct professor in the Eli Broad College of Business.
He earned his doctorate in veterinary medicine and a Ph.D. in agricultural economics from MSU in 1981 and 1989, respectively.
Lloyd has published more than 165 journal articles, technical reports, proceedings and book chapters, UF reported. He also secured grant funding for veterinary education and animal health projects and for his research interests, which include nontechnical behaviors that contribute to veterinarians’ success, markets for veterinary medical services and financial dimensions of veterinary medical education.
He served on the executive committee of the Michigan Veterinary Medical Association for four years and was its president in 2010.
