In addition to his residency training in general surgery and urology at the UT Graduate School of Medicine, Dr. White served as a Fellow in Laparoscopic and Robotic Urologic Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic. He assisted Dr. W. Bedford Waters as the Vice Chair of the Department beginning in July 2017 and as Director of Laparoscopic and Robotic Urologic Surgery since 2009.

Dean Hauptman said, "Dr. White has an ambitious plan for the Department, and I look forward to working with him to ensure continuity of our clinical, research and educational missions. While the Graduate School of Medicine and the Knoxville medical community at large lost a great leader in Dr. Waters in May, his legacy lives on in today’s announcement. Please join me in congratulating Dr. White on his appointment."
