Dr. Albert Reece, UAMS’ dean of the College of Medicine, declined to comment today on talk that he is on the short list for a job at the  University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.

But UAMS spokesman Leslie Taylor said that “on behalf of UAMS, since he’s come to the College of Medicine Dr. Reece has made such a difference … and I’m not surprised that somebody of his stature and track record would have opportunities at other places.”

Reece, an ob-gyn specialist in high-risk pregnancy who came to UAMS in 2002, is rumored to be in the running for dean of the college of medicine at UMMC. The Times is waiting to hear from UMMC on how short the list is.

UMMC Dean of the School of Medicine Donald E. Wilson announced last year he would retire Sept. 1. When Dr. Wilson took the helm at the School of Medicine in 1991, he became the nation’s first African-American dean at a predominantly white medical school. Today, the School of Medicine has one of the most diverse student bodies in the country and the number of African-American faculty members has doubled.
