ATLANTA (AP) — Emory University's executive vice president for health affairs has announced that he will step down.

The university said in a news release that S. Wright Caughman will continue in his present role until a replacement is found. Caughman will also be stepping down as CEO of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center and chairman of the board for Emory Healthcare.

The university says Caughman, who is 66, said the health sciences center needs a transition in leadership.

The Woodruff Health Sciences Center includes the Emory University School of Medicine, the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and the Rollins School of Public Health; the Yerkes National Primate Research Center; Winship Cancer Institute; and Emory Healthcare, Georgia's largest comprehensive health care system.
