There hasbeen extensive external review of the events at both a state and federal level, as well aswithin our University, and I know there will remain opinions surrounding this tragicincident.  I see the Regents' statement as the end of the University's review of this specificpatient's case. As a result of this case, our department of psychiatry has experienced significant scrutinyand withering criticism over the past five years, and through it all, the faculty of thedepartment have performed remarkably well in fulfilling its mission. When Chuck Schulz was recruited as chair ten years ago, he came to the University witha strong reputation in place and promised to build a solid program in education, research,and patient care. That he has done. His leadership has led to the recruitment of seventeenproductive faculty members engaged in a wide range of mental health clinical care andleading research. The number of University graduates choosing the field of psychiatry fortheir residency and future careers has jumped from three to fifteen, increasing the numberof new physician psychiatrists to care for patients. And the number of NIH grants to thedepartment has more than doubled, with a tripling of the funding amount. These are allmarks of a successful program under able leadership in the Medical School. In addition, I also want to note that Stephen Olson continues to dedicate much of hiswork to treatment-resistant psychosis, and continues to treat some of the most complexpsychiatric cases within the Fairview health system. There is one issue underlying these ongoing accusations that I would like to address here,
