Description: The University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine invites applications, inquires, and nominations for its next Executive Dean.

There are 25 departments on the Memphis Campus, nine departments on the Knoxville campus, and ten departments on the Chattanooga campus. Medical Students from the College of Medicine spend their first two years on the Memphis Campus and then rotate on all four Campuses for clinical training. GME Programs and active research and clinical practice programs are present on all three College of Medicine campuses. Responsibility for leadership of the Knoxville, Chattanooga and Nashville campuses is delegated by the Executive Dean to the three respective campus deans. Currently, the College has approximately 656 medical students and over 1100 residents and fellows in 84 GME training programs. Gross revenues for the College exceed $400 million annually with greater than $70 million in research revenues. Multiple physician practice groups make up the College of Medicine faculty practice arm with the largest number of faculty being members of University Clinical Health (UCH).

The successful candidate will be an outstanding, nationally recognized leader with a substantial record of research, teaching, clinical, and administrative accomplishments in academic medicine. He or she will have the in-depth knowledge and ability to effectively lead physicians, researchers, and educators while embracing the importance of quality and financial sustainability. Integrity, intellect, the ability to work effectively with numerous stakeholders, and a vision of how medicine will thrive clinically, scientifically and financially in an age of health reform are essential. Qualified candidates must hold an MD or equivalent medical degree; be board certified in their specialty and eligible for medical licensure in Tennessee; and meet University of Tennessee criteria for appointment to a tenured senior level faculty position. Above all, candidates should seek to actively engage with the community and serve the state of Tennessee.
