O’Neal will begin his work in his new role in October, and Aaron Fisher will serve as psychiatry’s interim associate chair for administration.
O’Neal began his work in psychiatry in 2020, providing leadership throughout the pandemic and facilitating the expansion of the department to respond to the mental health crisis and increased demand for services.
A national search will begin soon to identify a successor.
