Fred Arthur Zar, MD, Professor of Medicine
Program Director, Internal Medicine Residency, Director of Academic Affairs, Department of Medicine, University of Illinois at Chicago

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to one of the finest Internal Medicine Residencies in the country. I have been an Internal Medicine Program Director for over 30 years and the excitement of bringing physicians to their fullest potential continues to motivate me every day. I greatly enjoy interacting with the house staff 12 months a year in a variety of learning and patient care environments which include attending on the wards, conducting morning report, participating in noon conferences, and retreats.

Below is a link to a video that includes highlights about what I love about UIC.

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.
