There has been an important transition in leadership of the Harvard Medical School Fellowship in General Medicine and Primary Care. Since 1998, Dr. Russ Phillips has been an outstanding leader, mentor, and colleague in his role as Director of our Fellowship Program. Dr. Phillips was recently appointed as the inaugural Director of the HMS Center for Primary Care, after serving very effectively as interim co-director of the Center since the fall of 2010. We congratulate Dr. Phillips on this honor and important responsibility to strengthen and improve primary care at HMS and nationally. We are pleased to announce that Dr. Christina Wee will now assume Dr. Phillips' leadership role, joining Dr. John Ayanian in serving as one of the two Directors of our HMS Fellowship Program.
As a graduate of our fellowship program, Dr. Wee is very well prepared for her new leadership role. She has been the PI of several funded R01s, and she recently received a K24 mentoring grant. She has also received major awards at HMS and SGIM for her research mentoring, and she was elected this year to the American Society for Clinical Investigation for her superb research accomplishments.
The Harvard Medical School Fellowship in General Medicine and Primary Care offers 2-year academic fellowships to prepare talented physicians for careers in academic medicine. Since the program began in 1979, we have trained over 200 fellows, who now work in prestigious institutions nationally and internationally.
