Public input sought in UNM Health Sciences search

The University of New Mexico is hosting two forums this week during which officials will take input on the search for the next top official at UNM Health Sciences.

Dr. Paul Roth has announced that he is retiring this year from three top positions he holds at the university: dean of the School of Medicine, CEO of the Health System, and executive vice president/chancellor of Health Sciences.

UNM President Garnett Stokes announced earlier this month that she will separate at least some of those responsibilities.

She will hire a new leader for Health Sciences, and that person will select the next dean of the medical school.

Two forums about the search process will be held this week. Both will be from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and the forums will also be streamed on UNM’s website. UNM is also conducting a survey on the search.

The first forum will be held at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, 2401 12th NW, on Monday, Feb. 24, in the Chaco I Ballroom.

The second forum will be held at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, 1701 4th SW, on Tuesday, Feb. 25, in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.

Stokes will ultimately select the next Health Sciences leader after conducting a national search, informing the regents and hosting the finalists on campus for public forums, according to UNM policy.
