Moon J. Pak

Moon J Pak Headshot

Moon J. Pak, M.D., Ph.D., a well-respected community-engaged medical physician in the Oakland region with over 35 years of experience, was best known to Oakland University as the founder of our health / medical programs, and further to the Michigan Korean community, as a passionate advocate and leader. For his pioneering leadership from the early 1970s, the School of Health Sciences chose to create and honor Dr. Pak with its first ever Health Achievement Leadership Legacy (HALL) award, as presented in its inaugural 2017 Healthology Symposium. Throughout his enterprising career at Oakland University Dr. Pak served in progressive academic leadership roles as, a former associate professor of biological sciences, associate provost, and as the founding director of the Center for Health Sciences (now the School for Health Sciences). Most remarkably, it was Moon J. Pak who nearly three decades ago provided us with great vision, leading the university community in early discussions, with the goal of starting our own OU medical school, now successful as OUWB, the Oakland University William Beaumont Medical School.
