PARK RIDGE, IL, February 16, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Saint James School of Medicine, a leading Caribbean medical school, announced the appointment of Dr. Jose Ramirez to the position of Provost and Chief Academic Officer. Dr. Ramirez succeeded Dr. Benjamin Lumicao, who held the position for nearly five years.
Dr. Jose Ramirez is a medical graduate from UNEFM in Venezuela. He began teaching in 2004, training medical students and interns while training at Hospital Vargas de Caracas for his surgical specialty. He went on to become a top flight surgeon for several hospitals in Venezuela and became the coordinator of the postgraduate studies program for surgery at the Perez de Leon Hospital in Caracas, Venezuela.
With a lifelong passion for practicing surgery and educating young minds, Dr. Ramirez continued teaching at every opportunity and has six publications detailing his surgical techniques. In 2008, he even won a contest at the International Congress of Surgery in Caracas, Venezuela for his video, “Microvascular Flap of Fibula: Its Use for Oral Cavity Reconstruction.”

Dr. Ramirez continued by saying, “my goal is to continue in the footsteps of Dr. Lumicao and raise the level of education at Saint James School of Medicine. We have some amazing projects planned out for 2023, and we look forward to seeing the results.”
