Robert Shreve, EdD, and Owen Phillips, MD, have been appointed to associate dean positions within the College of Medicine (COM) at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Dr. Shreve has been named associate dean for medical education, and Dr. Phillips associate dean for student affairs.

The appointments follow an education reorganization plan proposed by the COM faculty blue ribbon panel that reviews education administration. The panel, headed by Eugene Mangiante, MD, associate dean for graduate medical education, proposed a restructuring of responsibility along content areas. The report proposed integration of all student education including curriculum, testing, standards and academic activities into a single position — medical education. Student support activities and admissions will be maintained in the area of student affairs.

Graduate Medical Education (GME) and Continuing Medical Education (CME) remain under the GME umbrella administered by Dr. Mangiante.

Dr. Shreve, associate professor of Preventive Medicine, previously served as interim associate dean of academic and faculty affairs. Dr. Phillips, professor and vice chair, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, previously served as assistant dean for student affairs. The associate dean appointments are effective December 1.

The Memphis campus will maintain associate deans for both hospital services and clinical ambulatory services. Dr. James “Lacey” Smith serves as the associate dean for hospital services. The UT Medical Group, Inc., chief medical officer serves as the associate dean for clinical ambulatory services.
