Message from the Chair – April 2022

University of Virginia Dr Mitchell RosnerSpring is here, and over the years, nothing heralds spring more for me than hearing about our incoming residency class. This year’s class is quite special, with a highly diverse group of outstanding students from across the country. My deepest thanks to the entire education team, the residency selection committee, Dr. Brian Uthlaut, and our Chief Residents. These new residents will be here before we know it, please welcome them to our community.

This edition highlights the Division of Hematology and Oncology led by Dr. Karen Ballen. This Division has grown faster over the last ten years than any other Division in the Department. The growth and excellence of our faculty were a huge contributor to the Cancer Center getting NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center status. As you will see in this edition, the Division is excelling in everything they do and improving the outcomes and lives of so many people in the region. This group is exceptional, whether in cutting-edge research, educating the next generation of specialists, or in their compassionate and comprehensive clinical care. My thanks to Drs. Ballen, Williams, and Loughran for their leadership.

Enjoy the wonderful weather and, hopefully, a spring break.

With best wishes,

Mitchell H. Rosner, MD, MACP
Henry B. Mulholland Professor of Medicine
Chair, Department of Medicine
