Colleagues: Read on for the latest news and events, and keep up to date on all things DoM via Twitter, Facebook, and our website.

Notes from the Chair

I’m excited to be releasing tomorrow the first annual publication for the Department of Medicine entitled Envisioning Our Future, Building on Our Past.

The publication highlights some of the amazing work being done by our faculty and gives readers glimpses of some recent successes we’ve had while addressing our tripartite mission: to teach the next generation of physicians, to do research, and to care for our patients. As we move into the future, it’s important to reflect on the past, which laid the foundation for the culture of the department.

The publication will be available both online and in print. We’ll circulate a link and additional information on December 1.
