Dr. Steve Lieberman, senior Dean for Administration in the School of Medicine, has been named interim dean of the new medical school at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley while the school searches for a permanent dean. Lieberman takes over for Dr. Francisco Fernandez, who announced last week that he was stepping down. Lieberman will retain duties at the University of Texas Medical Branch that include teaching and helping with the medical branch’s TEAM Clinic in Texas City. The first class of the UTRGV medical school is scheduled to convene this fall.
