Course 16 alumna named director of MIT Medical

Cecilia Warpinski Stuopis ’90 will assume her new role as director of MIT Medical before the end of the year, MIT announced Oct. 13.

“Dr. Stuopis is a respected physician leader and clinician with a strong clinical informatics background and a proven record of success in managing various aspects of a diverse health care organization,” Executive Vice President and Treasurer Israel Ruiz wrote in an email to the MIT Community this week.

Stuopis currently serves as vice president at Dartmouth-Hitcock health system in New Hampshire and works as an adjunct associate professor at Dartmouth.

“I am excited to be returning to MIT as the medical director for MIT Medical,” she told the MIT news office. “I am looking forward to collaborating with the providers, staff, and MIT community at large to improve the health of the entire MIT population in meaningful and measurable ways. Together, we should be able to innovate for the better health of our community — much as MIT is an innovator in education and research.”

Stuopis’s duties at Medical will include evaluating health care services and assuring compliance.

The appointment is the result of a search which began in October 2014 when William Kettyle announced he would step down from the post.

Kettyle, Stuopis’s predecessor, has worked at MIT Medical since 1993.

“Under his leadership, MIT Medical expanded its services to provide care for the entire MIT community, extended its connection to students, and increased community involvement in preventive care,” Ruiz wrote in an email when Kettyle first announced that he would step down.
