Message from the Department Head

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

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 health care to populations vulnerable to marginality in health care delivery.

Patricia FinnWe 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.

I invite you to learn more about our Department of Medicine. For additional information please contact us.


Patricia W. Finn, MD
Professor and Dept. Head
Department of Medicine

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
