2 Your Health A personal message from MUSC President Dr. Raymond Greenberg

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC -

Dear Members of the MUSC Community:

I am writing now to share with you some personal news. I have been offered and have accepted the position of Executive Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs at the University of Texas System. This position is responsible for providing oversight for the six very strong and vibrant health sciences campuses of the University of Texas system.

After nearly 14 years as President here, the decision to leave MUSC has been a most difficult one for me. There can be no greater privilege than to work alongside talented, hard-working and caring friends and colleagues. MUSC is a special place, first and foremost, because of the wonderful people who are here. In a real sense, the decision to depart feels to my wife, Leah, and me like leaving a much beloved home and family.

At the same time, change can be a good thing – both for individuals and for institutions. For me, the new position brings the opportunity to work at a statewide level in a rapidly growing and dynamic setting. For MUSC, a change in leadership can provide an opportunity to reflect upon our progress and chart new pathways for the future.

My departure from MUSC will occur at the end of August, whereupon Dr. Mark Sothmann will assume the position of Interim President. Dr. Sothmann has served in two capacities here at the Medical University, first as Dean of the College of Health Professions and currently as Vice President of Academic Affairs and Provost. Throughout his time here, he has proven to be a thoughtful decision-maker, a deliberative consensus builder and a visionary leader. I am confident that he, backed by our experienced team of senior administrators, will provide the University with stability and guidance needed to ensure a smooth transition into the future. I anticipate that the Board of Trustees will launch a national search for a permanent successor as soon as possible.

I cannot adequately express my appreciation to you for all that you have done and continue to do for the University. Nevertheless, I cannot conclude this message without thanking each of you for your generous personal support and encouragement for Leah and me. It has been an honor for us to work with you and share in so many successes together. We have every confidence that MUSC will continue to grow and prosper in the years ahead, and it will be our pleasure to watch its accomplishments, albeit from afar, but with undiminished enthusiasm and excitement.
