After an extensive national search, the University of Kentucky will bring three finalists for a new dean of the College of Medicine to the campus for forums and meetings. The outstanding finalists represent a diverse pool of candidates who will be engaging with the community in a number of ways. 

The first candidate will be on campus May 22-23 and will participate in an open forum 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 23, in Room 014 (basement) of the Charles T. Wethington (CTW) Building. Members of the UK community are encouraged to attend and to provide feedback. Those who cannot attend in person may view the forum on Zoom.

Details on this open forum, including information for viewing via Zoom, finalist names and CVs of the finalists will be made available to the UK community on the search webpage 24 hours prior to their open forum.

Following each forum, an online survey about the candidate will also be available on the search webpage

Feedback from the survey will be gathered for 48 hours after the completion of the candidate’s visit, providing members of the UK community the opportunity to assess strengths and areas of growth for each candidate.

UK Provost Robert S. DiPaola announced a committee charged with conducting the search. He will make a selection after receiving feedback from the committee and campus.
