Executive Summary

ASST. SECTY. FOR HEALTH BRANDT UNDER CONSIDERATION FOR U. TEXAS Medical School (San Antonio) Health Science Center presidency. Brandt is one of "six-to-eight" candidates interviewed for the position by a search cmte. appointed in February by the university's Board of Regents. The regents are scheduled to meet in October to review the search cmte.'s recommendations and select the new president. Under board procedures, the search cmte. would submit its three-to-five top choices to the board for final consideration. Current center president Frank Harrison plans to retire. Brandt, appointed in the early months of the Reagan Administration, has held the asst. secty. post longer than any of his recent predecessors. Surgeon General Koop, appointed in tandem with Brandt, joins the asst. secty. as part of Reagan's old guard at HHS. The selection of Brandt as the Health Science Center president would mean a return to familiar turf for the three and a half year Reagan Administration verteran. Prior to his HHS appointment, Brandt served as University of Texas Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs (1977-1981) and before that as University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston graduate dean, associate dean for clinical affairs, dean of medicine, and professor of preventive medicine and family medicine (1970-1977).
