The school said in a news release Monday that Avijit Ghosh has been appointed to the job, pending approval Thursday from the University of Illinois Board of Trustees. He would be in charge of the university hospital and clinics in Chicago and serve as the school’s associate vice president for hospital operations.

Ghosh would start Aug. 16. His predecessor resigned to take a position at the University of Chicago.
