BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) - Maine's only medical school has a new dean.

The University of New England says Dr. Douglas Wood takes over as dean of its College of Osteopathic Medicine this Friday.

Wood most recently served as senior vice president of academic affairs at A.T. Still University in Arizona, where he was dean of the School of Osteopathic Medicine from 2005 to 2010.

He served as president of the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine from 1995 to 2005, and earlier served as dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University.

Wood replaces Marc Hahn, who left UNE to assume the provost position at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences.
