From East Tennessee State University

JOHNSON CITY – A search committee charged with finding the next dean of medicine for East Tennessee State University's James H. Quillen College of Medicine has selected three candidates who will interview on campus over the next six weeks.

The committee has conducted a nationwide search that resulted in applications from around the country. The candidates are:

Dr. Margaret Dunn, professor of surgery with Wright State University's Boonshoft School of Medicine and formerly executive associate dean and president and CEO of Wright State Physicians;

Dr. Robert Means, executive dean for the University of Kentucky College of Medicine and professor of internal medicine; and

Dr. Charles Mouton, dean of the School of Medicine at Meharry Medical College, and senior vice president for Health Affairs and professor of family and community medicine.

The candidates will participate in two-and-a-half days of interviews that include meetings with the leadership, faculty, staff, students and medical residents from the university and the College of Medicine. Interviews for Mouton will begin Wednesday, Oct. 23, followed by Means on Tuesday, Nov. 12, and Dunn on Tuesday, Nov. 19.

ETSU began searching for its next dean when Dr. Philip Bagnell announced his retirement in January. Dr. Kenneth Olive, Quillen's executive associate dean for Academic and Faculty Affairs, is serving as interim dean.

Dr. Wilsie Bishop, ETSU's vice president for Health Affairs and university chief operating officer, formed the search committee that is led by Dr. Randy Wykoff, dean of the ETSU College of Public Health. The committee includes university and College of Medicine faculty, students, staff, alumni, leadership from ETSU's clinical affiliates and other community leaders. The committee's exemplary work, she said, will ensure a bright future for the college.

"I commend the search committee for producing a truly exceptional panel of finalists, drawn from an unusually strong applicant pool," Bishop said. "The three candidates who will interview were chosen from an outstanding pool of health care leaders from around the country, which I think speaks volumes about the reputation of the Quillen College of Medicine and East Tennessee State University."
