In February 2013, Executive Vice Chancellor Douglas Girod, M.D., announced that a search committee had been formed to identify candidates for the position of executive dean at the the University of Kansas School of Medicine. Richard Barohn, M.D., chair of the Department of Neurology and director of Frontiers: The Heartland Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, agreed to chair the search committee.
"The School of Medicine is a complex organization, with numerous programs and activities spread across multiple sites," Girod said in a message to the campus community. "We need a proven leader who can think strategically, articulate a vision and empower the faculty and staff, and I am confident that our colleagues will find that person."
