I had the same reaction, but it does seem to be used in this exact context. And when I think about the meaning of the word president (someone who presides over something), it isn't really that strange after all. In fact, we should do away with the word chairman in English, because it's troublesome to have to say chairwoman or chairperson.

If I were you, I would google around and try to find the most common title for this position in Spanish for people with the same job description.

Thank you both for posting. I was pretty sure on the "Profesor Clínico" however it does look odd putting "presidente" for Chairman.

Ah well, it is what it is.

That looks like a good stab. Other options for chairman in this context are presidente and director.

Make sure to put an accent in clínico.
