Amanda George and Jake Stover, both of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences on Tuesday named Amanda George vice chancellor for finance and chief financial officer. 

George, a certified public accountant, previously served as associate vice chancellor for clinical finance and CFO of the integrated clinical enterprise. She joined UAMS in 2013 as administrator for the Department of Internal Medicine. Before then, she worked for Catholic Health Initiatives in Little Rock.

UAMS also said that Jake Stover is taking on the role of chief administrative officer and associate vice chancellor for clinical finance with the integrated clinical enterprise. He was previously associate dean for finance and chief financial officer of the College of Medicine.

The two had been jointly serving as interim vice chancellor for finance and CFO in addition to their regular duties following the retirement in December of Bill Bowes as senior vice chancellor for finance and administration.

"I believe these changes will better position UAMS for the future and support our efforts to serve our patients, students and all 3 million residents of the state of Arkansas," UAMS Chancellor Cam Patterson said in a news release.

UAMS, the state's only health sciences university, has more than 2,700 students, 870 medical residents and five dental residents. It is the state’s largest public employer with more than 10,000 employees.
