William Bill Pieratt, DO


It is my pleasure to serve as the Dean and Chief Academic Officer for the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine, the only Osteopathic College in New Mexico. I join Burrell with a passion to work with our skilled faculty and staff to ensure the education of our students focuses on training future physicians to improve diversity and access for a more robust healthcare workforce for the community, the region, and the border area.

As the College’s Dean, I will focus on using relational leadership and developing skills across teams to provide high quality education for our students and future physicians. I believe in working collaboratively, using our guiding principles, to achieve our institutional mission.

Burrell is at an exciting time with our inaugural class graduating in May 2020, and 100% of our graduates securing positions in residency training programs. I will continue to work diligently with our faculty, staff, and students, focusing on continuous improvement and expanding Burrell to better serve the needs of our communities.

I encourage you to learn more about Burrell College by exploring our website, and if possible, visiting our beautiful campus.
