US surgeon general Vivek H Murthy was on Friday dismissed by the Trump administration, and replaced by his deputy, Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams.

“Today, Murthy, the leader of the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, was asked to resign from his duties as Surgeon General after assisting in a smooth transition into the new Trump administration,” the US Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement.

“Murthy has been relieved of his duties as Surgeon General and will continue to serve as a member of the Commissioned Corps,” it further read.

Murthy, an Obama administration holdover, was the 19th surgeon general and the first Indian American to head the corps.
