"Dr. Stumpf is an excellent addition to our faculty," said John A. McDonald, M.D., Ph.D., vice president for health sciences and dean. "He brings a wide range of clinical and research experience to the School of Medicine and will serve our students, residents and patients well."
Stumpf, a board-certified physician in obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive endocrinology, most recently served as vice-chair for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Chief of Reproductive Endocrinology at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center in New Jersey.

As chairman of the department at the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Stumpf will teach third- and fourth-year medical students as well as serve patients in the University Health System, the medical school's integrated clinical practice.
He is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG), a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the American College of Surgeons and is a charter member of both the Society of Reproductive Endocrinologists and the Society of Reproductive Surgeons.
Stumpf works on many medical society activities at the local, regional and national levels, and was chair of ACOG's Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Committee, among others.
Stumpf has written and published numerous articles, book chapters and abstracts on obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive endocrinology for professional and scientific publications over the last 20 years. He earned his medical degree from the State University of New York and the Health Science Center in Brooklyn followed by his obstetrics and gynecology residency at the University of Southern California Medical Center in Los Angeles where he also completed a post-doctoral fellowship in reproductive endocrinology.
