Dr. Henri Ronald Ford is a Haitian-born paediatric surgeon who always maintains close ties with his native country Haiti. Following the devastating 2010 earthquake, he returned to Haiti to provide medical assistance to earthquake victims. He has been appointed as the Dean of the University Of Miami Miller School Of Medicine, effective since June 1, 2018.
Dr. Ford was born in Haiti and spent his early years in Port-au-Prince. During the reign of Papa Doc Duvalier, 13 year old Ford fled with his family to settle among the Haitian community in Brooklyn, New York. His father was a preacher who spoke out against inequality in Haitian society. However, even after settling in the US, he returned several times in the 1990's as a visiting doctor to help provide medical care, train doctors and create healthcare infrastructure that he hoped will one day provide a better life to his countrymen on the island.
Ford's devotion to his discipline and desire to help others is never a matter of surprise to his close associates. He has always maintained that becoming the Dean of the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine was a dream to him. His association with UM started 17 years ago when his sister suffered serious burns. Her dress caught fire and she was airlifted from Haiti to Miami where she spent six weeks in the Intensive Care Burn Unit at Jackson Memorial, under the care of the physicians from UM. Eventually she made a full recovery.
Dr. Ford is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the Royal College of Surgeons (England), the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, and the American Academy of Paediatrics. He received his bachelor's degree in public and international affairs, cum laude, from Princeton University, and his M.D. from Harvard Medical School. He also received his M.H.A. (Master of Health Administration) degree from the School of Policy, Planning and Development at the University of Southern California.
