HHS secretary Tommy Thompson announced in early December that he will resign from his post on February 4, 2005, or when a successor is confirmed.

Likely successors include the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services administrator Mark McClellan, MD, who previously led FDA, and HHS deputy secretary Claude Allen.

Thompson, a former four-term Wisconsin governor with more than three decades of public service, is the eighth Bush cabinet member to resign from the 15-member cabinet since the president won reelection.
