The Chair's Notes

We are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Associate Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residency Training Program – Dr. Angela Rogers.

Dr. Rogers graduated from Harvard Medical School and completed her Internal Medicine residency at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Pulmonary and Critical Care fellowship in the Harvard program. She moved to Stanford as an Assistant Professor in 2013. Her research focus is on using genomics to identify novel biomarkers and improve phenotyping in sepsis and ARDS.

Since coming to Stanford two years ago, Dr. Rogers has emerged as one of the most beloved educators in the Department, with a true passion for resident/fellow education. As a member of the residency program’s Core Faculty, Dr. Rogers has served as an outstanding mentor and recruiter, particularly for trainees interested in Pulmonary/Critical Care & for those in our Medicine-Anesthesia combined program. She will continue to have a particular focus on these two areas moving forward.

Dr. Rogers joins an extremely talented team of Associate Program Directors, including Dr. Neera Ahuja, Dr. Stephanie Harman, and Dr. Shri Nallamshetty. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Rogers on her new leadership role.
