Wayne Riley selected as new President of Meharry

Meharry Medical College officials announced that Wayne Riley will serve as the college’s new president and CEO.

From a field of approximately 100 candidates, the selection committee selected a leader at one of the nation’s top medical schools whose father is a Meharry graduate. Riley has a resume studded with accomplishments including his most recent job as vice president and vice dean of nationally ranked Baylor College of Medicine, in addition to degrees from Yale, Tulane and Rice universities.

“Dr. Riley clearly was the right choice,” said Milton Jones, chairman of the Meharry board of trustees. “He certainly has a very, very high pedigree of experience, and we’re excited to have him.”

He’s the son of 1960 Meharry graduate Emile Edward Riley Jr.

“Meharry changed his life, and made my life possible,” said Riley, who’ll become the school’s 10th president.

Riley said his vision for the college includes a commitment to underserved populations in providing health care, as well as “ground-breaking research” on diseases that disproportionately affect African-American populations. The college’s mission should extend beyond north Nashville, and redefine the idea of what it means to be a historically black medical college.

In terms of the Nashville community, Riley hopes to further cultivate the alliance between Meharry and Vanderbilt Medical School. He said he will also concentrate on promoting Metro General Hospital, both within the college and out in the community.

“I’ve spent my life in public hospitals,” Riley said. “Metro General Hospital is a community and regional resource.”

Riley takes office effective Jan. 1. He succeeds interim president Anna Epp, who took the helm at Meharry after former president John Maupin left in June
