IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The University of Iowa’s top health care official is expected to briefly serve as the school’s interim president later this year.

Board of Regents President Bruce Rastetter said Wednesday that he would recommend that UI vice president for medical affairs Jean Robillard fill in when President Sally Mason retires July 31.

Robillard’s leading the search committee tasked with helping find a replacement for Mason, who announced in January her plan to step down. The search panel met Wednesday, and said it might not have finalists for the job until the beginning of the fall semester.

Robillard oversees University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, the medical school, and the university’s doctor’s group practice. He has served in that role since 2007 after serving four years as dean of the medical college.
