Thomas J. Fairchild, PhD, has been appointed associate vice president for institutional planning and performance improvement at the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth.

The appointment from Ronald Blanck, DO, president of UNTHSC, comes after the announcement that Greg McQueen, PhD, former senior vice president for academic affairs, became the senior vice president for institutional advancement at the University of North Texas effective Jan. 1. Part of Dr. McQueen’s duties at UNTHSC included heading institutional planning and performance improvement.

“We are fortunate to have someone already in place at the health science center who can come in and take over where Dr. McQueen left off,” Dr. Blanck said. “Dr. Fairchild just seemed like the natural choice to come in and fill this vacancy because of his many years of focus on performance improvement in the area of management of long-term care organizations.”

Part of Dr. Fairchild’s duties will include establishing and maintaining an effective strategic planning process across the institution. Dr. Fairchild will also work with the acting senior vice president for academic affairs to develop a vision and mission that reflects the core values of the academic schools that make up the health science center.

“I think Thomas Fairchild is an excellent person to head that area up and carry out those initiatives,” said Warren Anderson, EdD, acting senior vice president of academic affairs.

Dr. Fairchild will also continue to serve as director of special projects on aging. Dr. Fairchild has been at the health science center for seven years.
