WICHITA, Kansas – Kansas Health Science Center (KHSC) has hired Tony Bendall as the assistant dean for assessment and outcomes and Richard Winslow, Ph.D., as the associate dean of student affairs and services.

Bendall, the assistant dean for assessment and outcomes, spent the past nine years working as a founding staff member for three colleges of osteopathic medicine: Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Buies Creek, North Carolina, and most recently the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine in Meridian, Idaho.

Since starting his work in higher education, Bendall has held various positions involved in the assessment of curriculum, student success, and analysis of results against goals and objectives. Before that, he spent 30 years in the field of software design, data analysis, and reporting.

“Tony’s expertise in osteopathic education and student assessments and outcomes will help us to assure we can meet our mission to train the osteopathic physician of the future to provide effective, empathic, and innovative care,” said Joel Dickerman, DO, dean and chief academic officer of Kansas Health Science Center.

Dr. Winslow, named the associate dean of student affairs and services, spent the first 16 years of his career at William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri, supervising the student life department in various positions and serving as the vice president for enrollment, financial aid, and student affairs. He spent the last six years as the vice provost of enrollment and student services at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Missouri. In February 2020, he published his first book, “Straight Talk for College Parents: An Insider’s Guide to Helping Your Student Survive the First Year of College.”

“Dr. Winslow brings a wealth of knowledge in providing comprehensive services for osteopathic students, from application to a college of osteopathic medicine to providing ongoing support to all students as they face the rigors of osteopathic education. We look forward to his innovative processes in supporting KHSC,” said Dr. Dickerman.
