UT Health Science Center Associate Dean Steps Down
By Don Wade
Robert G. Shreve is relinquishing his role as associate dean for medical education in the University of Tennessee Health Science Center’s College of Medicine on June 16. Shreve will continue in a full-time administrative role in the office of medical education until he retires at the end of the year.
Shreve has been with the UTHSC College of Medicine since 2002. Most recently, he led the college through its successful eight-year reaccreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education.
James “Pat” Ryan, currently assistant dean for basic science curriculum in the UT College of Medicine, will serve as the interim associate dean for medical education, effective in mid-June.
The search for a senior associate dean of medical education and chair of the Department of Medical Education already has started.
