NCAA chief medical officer to retire

Brian Hainline, MD, senior vice president and chief medical officer of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, plans to retire May 31 after more than a decade in the role.

Dr. Hainline, a neurologist, was appointed as the NCAA's first chief medical officer in 2013, according to a March 12 news release from the organization. He founded and oversees the NCAA Sport Science Institute, which works to support the physical and mental health of college athletes. He is also a professor of neurology at both Bloomington-based Indiana University and New York City-based New York University's schools of medicine.

Dr. Hainline played a major role in the formation of the Concussion Assessment, Research and Education Consortium, the largest concussion and head injury study in history, according to the release. Prior to joining the NCAA, he served as chief medical officer of the U.S. Open Tennis Championships and the United States Tennis Association.
