It's official. As the Arkansas Times earlier reported, Debra Fiser today was named dean of the UAMS College of Medicine.
Fiser has been serving as chairwoman of the UAMS Department of Pediatrics since 1995, and has been on faculty there since 1981. She will be the first female dean of UAMS when she begins her new job on Sept. 1.
She succeeds Dean E. Albert Reece, who resigned to accept the dean's position at the University of Maryland's School of Medicine.
