The University of Missouri School of Medicine dean is stepping down, the university announced today.

Patrice Delafontaine took the role of dean in 2014. He resigned a first time in 2015 and was reinstated the following year. MU spokesperson Christian Basi says this resignation marks the end of Delafontaine’s relationship with the university.

“It’s my understanding this will be a permanent separation," Basi said.
