  • DR. CAM PATTERSON, APPROVED AS NEXT UAMS CHANCELLOR.
The UA Board of Trustees approved in a teleconference this morning President Donald Bobbitt's nomination of Dr. Cam Patterson as the next chancellor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

Patterson is COO of Weill-Cornell Medical Center of New York Presbyterian Hospital. He'll start work here June 1. His total pay will be $1.2 million, which includes deferred compensation. Trustees commented at the brief meeting that Patterson's business experience would serve financially-troubled UAMS well. Trustees have told UAMS that they expect it to propose a balanced budget for the 2019 fiscal year. UAMS' is running a deficit of $72 million and it's expected that turning that around is going to cost jobs and programs.

Prior to his appointment as COO, Patterson was in 2015 awarded the Distinguished Scientist Award from the American College of Cardiology for his research in molecular cardiology.

Interim Chancellor Stephanie Gardner, Pharm.D., Ed.D., will continue in the job until Patterson arrives.
