FROM THE CHAIR

Patricia Finn

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

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 heath care delivery.

We emphasize the culture of medicine at its most laudable core: commitment to the best possible care for patients and scientific creativity with a focus on the next generation of physician scientists. Scientific 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 and medical bioinformatics 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.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to UIC and our internal medicine residency program. At UIC we value individual diversity and have a steadfast commitment to our core mission defined by the pursuit of excellence in patient care, education, and scholarly activities. But our success in these pursuits is only made possible thanks to the ceaseless efforts of our extraordinary and dedicated faculty, staff, and trainees.

We are fortunate to be able to care for a large and diverse patient population from our surrounding community and are committed to providing care for all, including the underserved. Our clinical programs serve to enrich and augment our year-round educational activities, intended for all of us as lifelong learners. Our faculty include scientists and investigators who are driven to innovate, explore new frontiers, and help train the next generation of physician-scientists. At UIC, we strive for excellence in all of these endeavors and we welcome those who share our passion for our mission.

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.
