  • About

Mark W. Hoglund, EdD was appointed to the Department of Family Practice as Senior Staff Associate in August 1993. His initial assignment was to serve as project manager for the establishment of Family Health Services, which was SUNY Downstate's first neighborhood satellite primary care center. His efforts, in collaboration with many individuals in the Department, the Hospital, and the institution, led to the successful opening of Family Health Services in December 1994. Dr. Hoglund assumed the responsibility of administrator for the Department in 1995 and has continued to serve in that capacity since that time. In this role, he handles personnel, financial, and operational matters on behalf of the Department, participates in writing grant proposals, performs numerous financial and operational analyses, and carries out other special assignments on behalf of the Department and the Department Chair.

Dr. Hoglund's decision to join the SUNY Downstate community represented a new career direction. His initial work, during the mid-1970s, was in the field of teaching and education, and he earned a doctorate in Education in 1978. For the next fifteen years, Dr. Hoglund served as a Human Resources professional in three different organizations, chiefly in compensation and job analysis and evaluation. He also worked on special assignments in the area of career development in all three organizations.

Dr. Hoglund has continually striven to broaden his professional capabilities. From 1997-2003, Dr. Hoglund served as a workshop leader for SUNY Downstate's Supervisors Seminar, for which he developed a new and innovative curriculum and workshop plan on the topic of "Performance Management". During 2002-2004, he completed a program of professional studies in Adult Career Planning and Development at New York University. Subsequently, he developed and led workshops for participants interested in personal growth and planning for retirement. In 2009, Dr. Hoglund collaborated with Drs. Richard Sadovsky and Justin Classie on an article which was published in the Journal of Men's Health under the title, "Engagement in Life Activities Promotes Healthy Aging in Men." In September 2011, Dr. Hoglund enrolled in the Doctor of Public Health Program at SUNY Downstate Medical Center. His primary interests are in Epidemiology and Community Health.
