UM’s chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer re­signs his post

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

The Univer­sity of Mary­land Med­i­cal Sys­tem’s chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer re­signed this week, cut­ting ties with the univer­sity he has been as­so­ci­ated with for 28 years. Dr. Stephen T. Bartlett was one of the high­est-paid em­ploy­ees of the state of Mary­land, earn­ing $951,000 in 2017, ac­cord­ing to the state salary data­base. He was ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent of the med­i­cal sys­tem, as well as a tenured en­dowed pro­fes­sor and di­rec­tor of the trans­plan­ta­tion pro­gram. In a news re­lease, the univer­sity said: “We ex­tend our ap­pre­ci­a­tion to Dr. Bartlett for the many sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions he has made dur­ing his 28-year- as­so­ci­a­tion with the or­ga­ni­za­tions and of­fer our very best wishes on his fu­ture en­deav­ors.” Karen Lan­caster, a spokes­woman for the univer­sity med­i­cal sys­tem, would not say whether Dr. Bartlett was re­tir­ing or tak­ing an­other po­si­tion. “There is no ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion I can pro­vide,” she said. Dr. Bartlett could not im­me­di­ately be reached for com­ment. Dr. Michelle A. Gour­dine, se­nior vice pres­i­dent for pop­u­la­tion health and pri­mary care at UMMS, will serve as in­terim chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer un­til a na­tional search is con­ducted.
