JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - The new Joplin campus of the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences osteopathic medical school has named an interim dean.

The Joplin Globe (https://bit.ly/1NiWY3c ) reports that he’s John Dougherty, who previously worked as a physician in Joplin. He says the new campus will be “uniquely positioned to have a significant impact on the need for primary care physicians to serve in rural and underserved areas in this region.”

As interim dean, Dougherty will assist with curriculum design, faculty recruitment and campus development while the university recruits a permanent dean.

The Joplin campus is set to open with its first cohort of 150 students in 2017. It will be located in the former temporary building set up by Mercy Hospital Joplin following the 2011 tornado.
