UND med school dean H. David Wilson to lead Kansas med schoolWICHITA, Kan. -- The University of Kansas School of Medicine has named a new dean for its campus in Wichita.
The school hired H. David Wilson, current dean at the University of North Dakota's School of Medicine and Health Sciences. He plans to begin in Wichita on July 1.
Wilson announced late last year that he was resigning at UND at the end of the academic year to pursue several national administrative posts.
Wilson says he wants to focus on creating more doctors for rural areas, including primary care physicians and specialists.
Wilson will replace S. Edwards Dismuke, who resigned as dean last fall.
