Welcome from the Chair

Academic Internal Medicine and Geriatrics  

I am thrilled and honored to welcome you to the Department of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

My goal is to maintain an outstanding Department of Medicine that synergizes innovative, investigative, and education missions with a vigorous commitment to deliver exceptional healthcare to populations vulnerable to marginality in health care delivery.Dr. Finn

We emphasize the culture of medicine at its most laudable core: commitment to the best possible care of patients and scientific creativity with a focus on the next generation of physician scientists. Investigative possibilities are compelling and hopeful, as these extraordinary times present unique opportunities to mesh the science and art of medicine. Multidisciplinary approaches incorporating innovative technology offer new directions. The intangibles that we stress include pride in service, whether in the local community or in global health. We promote service to our institution and community as essential to the mission of the Department of Medicine.
