AMHERST, N.Y. – Dr. Michael Brogan, Daemen College senior vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college, has been named by Buffalo Business First an inaugural Excellence in Health Care Award recipient, making him one of the first to receive this regional honor.
The 2019 Excellence in Health Care Awards recognize the top professionals in Western New York’s health care industry. Brogan and other recipients will be recognized at an awards dinner on March 28 at the Hyatt Regency Downtown.
“I am incredibly honored and humbled to be among the first honorees selected for this award,” said Brogan. “As an administrator, teacher, and mentor, it is truly inspiring to be a part of educating the next generation of health care professionals and to instill in our students the skills and talents that will enable them to provide the highest quality patient care.”
Brogan, who has more than 30 years of experience in higher education, was promoted last year to his current senior vice president role, having most recently served as vice president. Since 1985, he has worked in various other academic capacities, including as dean of the college’s Health and Human Services Division, chair of the Physical Therapy Department, and academic coordinator of clinical education. In addition, he’s a professor of physical therapy, a program he has taught in for more than three decades.
Brogan’s affiliation with Daemen started as a student. He received a bachelor’s degree in physical therapy and later returned to the college to earn a doctor of physical therapy. He also holds a doctorate in educational administration and a master’s degree in health science education and evaluation, both from the University at Buffalo.
A national expert and certified wound care specialist, Brogan serves on the editorial advisory board for the prestigious journal Wounds. He is a diplomat of the American Academy of Wound Management, and a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and the New York Physical Therapy Association.
Brogan was previously selected for the Fulbright Specialist program, which connects U.S. scholars and professionals with counterparts at overseas institutions. He has also extensively researched, published, and presented on wound care and physical therapy at conferences across the country.
He resides in South Buffalo.
