JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

East Tennessee State University has narrowed the search for a new dean of medicine for the James H. Quillen College of Medicine. Three candidates will interview on campus over the next six weeks.

The committee has conducted a nationwide search that resulted in applications from around the country. The candidates are:

Dr. Margaret Dunn, professor of surgery with Wright State University's Boonshoft School of Medicine and formerly executive associate dean and president and CEO of Wright State Physicians;

Dr. Robert Means, executive dean for the University of Kentucky College of Medicine and professor of internal medicine;

Dr. Charles Mouton, dean of the School of Medicine at Meharry Medical College, and senior vice president for Health Affairs and professor of family and community medicine.

Each candidate will be on campus for a two-and-a-half day interview process.

ETSU began searching for its next dean when Dr. Philip Bagnell announced his retirement in January.
