Announcement from Dr. Eble

February 26, 2021

Dear Colleagues:

                On April 1, I will celebrate the twenty-third anniversary of Dean Holden’s appointing me head of the department in 1998. It has been a great joy and an honor to have played a part in the evolution of the department and the IU Health laboratory system. A term of more than twenty years as department head is unusual in medical schools in the United States. For several years I have been discussing the transition to a new department head with Dean Hess. We had planned to begin the process in the first quarter of 2020, near my fortieth anniversary of joining the faculty of Indiana University, but the imperatives of the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic made that impractical. Recently, Dean Hess and I have agreed that the pandemic situation has improved and he will begin the search next month. The time course of searches is unpredictable but Dean Hess believes it is possible that a new department head could be in place in the fourth quarter of 2021. Dean Hess has conducted many successful searches for medical school leaders as Dean and for excellent pathologists as head of the pathology department at the University of Michigan. I am certain that he is extremely well situated to select and recruit a superb pathologist to lead the department to many new successes.

                The Dean’s office has a standardized process for conducting these searches and members of our faculty and staff will be engaged by the Dean’s staff at various stages of the process. I ask that you support the search effort by making your time and information available when they are requested. 

                For any who might be wondering, it is not my present intent to retire from the faculty at the time of handing over my leadership role. At the very least, I would like to continue to learn urological pathology and to teach it to residents and fellows. 

                I thank the faculty, staff, and house staff of the department and laboratory system, present and past, for joining forces and engaging over the last 23 years to develop this department and laboratory system into what it has become today. I hope that you share my pride in what we have achieved and my confidence that this period has been only a harbinger of our greater future.

Best regards,
John
