Dean of UAB School of Medicine to step down

BIRMINGHAM, AL (AP) - The University of Alabama at Birmingham has announced that its medical school dean will step down next year, after a successor is found.

The Birmingham News reported that UAB made the announcement Friday. Dr. Robert Rich, who is 68, has been dean of the medical school since October 2004, when UAB recruited him from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta.

UAB says Rich will hold a faculty position at UAB after stepping down as dean.

Rich has received the American Association of Immunologists lifetime achievement award, the group's highest honor. He is on the executive committee of the boards of directors of the UAB Health System, University of Alabama Health Services Foundation and Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia.
