We are pleased to announce that Dr. Geetanjali Chander began her tenure as our new head of the Division of General Internal Medicine this week. Dr. Chander came to us from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where she was a professor of medicine with a joint appointment in epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Her research is focused on the effects of substance abuse and mental health disorders on HIV disease outcomes.

 

For over ten years, she led (as co-director and then director) the General Internal Medicine Fellowship program at Johns Hopkins and was recognized for her mentoring with a Scholarly Concentrations Excellence in Mentoring Award and Brancati Mentoring Award from Johns Hopkins, and the Mid-Career Research Mentorship Award from the National Society for General Internal Medicine. She was a member of the Johns Hopkins Department of Medicine Diversity Council from 2004 to 2022.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Chander,” said Department Chair Dr. Barbara Jung, “and look forward to the insight and leadership she will bring to the division and the department.”

Thank you to Dr. Stephanie Page and the entire search committee for their efforts, and Dr. John Amory for his dedication and leadership as interim division head.
