Rocky Mountain University (RMU) is excited to announce the appointment of Daisy Rosado-Cantrell, MSML, as RMU’s new Chief of Staff. Rosado-Cantrell assumes the position following former Chief of Staff, Cameron Martin, PhD, who was made President and CEO of RMU in January, 2023.
Rosado-Cantrell brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table with 13 years of experience in graduate medical education. She has served in various leadership roles at several medical education institutions and health centers throughout the country, including Residency Coordinator at New York Medical College, Institutional Coordinator at the University of Nevada School of Medicine, founding Administrative Director at HCA Healthcare, Far West Division, and as Program Director at the MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center.
“Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of helping develop the physicians of the future by assisting medical students in their residency and fellowship training as well as through managing continuing medical education for physicians,” Rosado-Cantrell said. “This work has led me to where I am today, higher education in a private, quality, and reputable university.”
With her extensive background in healthcare education, Rosado-Cantrell recognizes the need for more healthcare professionals in society and champions RMU’s efforts to fill this need through its inspired core values, individualized teaching model, and quality instruction.
“Having come from graduate medical education, I am keenly aware of the healthcare professional shortage our nation faces,” Rosado-Cantrell said. “RMU understands that we need to educate healthcare professionals to love and lift others for the purpose of improving the human condition. Smaller class sizes and exceptional educators are just a few examples of how RMU educates professionals in this way; my choice had to be RMU.”
Looking ahead, Rosado-Cantrell plans to ensure that University students and their needs are at the forefront of institutional efforts and carries the charge to continue to foster the culture of unity and progression that is RMU.
“The needs of our student body are first and foremost,” Rosado-Cantrell said, “As Chief of Staff, I will take the baton of hard work and dedication of those before me and continue to move us forward by supporting the Office of the President through identifying barriers and removing roadblocks to realizing our mission of ‘Advancing Knowledge, Advancing Healthcare.’”
