Duke Official to Run UC San Diego Medical School

August 13, 2000|Associated Press

DURHAM, N.C. — The dean of the Duke University School of Medicine is stepping down to take a similar position at UC San Diego.

Dr. Edward Holmes will begin his new position Sept. 18. Holmes took the California position to be closer to wife Judith Swain, who works at the Stanford University medical school, said Ralph Snyderman, Duke's chancellor for health affairs.

Holmes, who will become UC San Diego's vice chancellor for health sciences and dean of the school of medicine, took the Duke dean's job in January 1999 after posts in Pennsylvania and California.

The 59-year-old Holmes also worked earlier in his career at Duke, where he met and married Swain, who served on the Duke faculty for 17 years.

A committee immediately will begin the search to find a new dean, Snyderman said.
