Please join us in congratulating Dr. Barbara Jung, who will assume the chair of Medicine position at the University of Washington on September 1. Dr. Jung has been instrumental in growing the Gastroenterology and Hepatology Division. We thank her for her service to UIC and wish her the best on her new adventure.
We are grateful to the leaders of the division for assuming new responsibilities. Dr. Brian Boulay has accepted the interim division chief position, Dr. Sean Koppe will continue as director of hepatology and assume the position of interim associate chief, and Dr. Tim McGorisk will also serve as interim associate chief. The Department of Medicine is committed to support all the faculty, staff, and trainees of GI and Hepatology in providing the best possible care for our patients in parallel with discovery and education. We thank Drs. Boulay, Koppe and McGorisk for leading the division in this time of transition.
