Professor emeritus James B. Atkinson, who served several leadership positions in the UCLA Health System, has been serving as the interim associate vice chancellor and president of UCLA Hospital System as of May 11, officials announced Tuesday.

Atkinson temporarily assumed the position after David Feinberg stepped down from his role on May 1. The university is searching for a permanent replacement for Feinberg, a process that they predict will take up to 12 months, according to a statement.
