The University of Michigan Medical School has selected James Woolliscroft, M.D., as dean.
The five-year appointment will be effective July 1 if approved in June by the schools board of regents.
Woolliscroft, 56, has been interim dean for the past 10 months, since Allen Lichter, M.D., left to become chief executive of the American Society of Clinical Oncologists.
Woolliscroft joined the faculty in 1980 and was named executive associate dean in 1999. -- by Gregg Blesch
