Message from the Chair – June 2024

University of Virginia Dr Mitchell Rosner

One of the Department of Medicine’s goals is to bring novel and advanced therapies to patients with complex diseases. In fact, academic medicine in the United States has a long and storied history of leading the way in developing ground-breaking therapies that have translated into tangible benefits for patients.

This edition of Medicine Matters strikes me as a great example of this innovation focused on improving the human condition. Just take a look at the new clinical studies that Department faculty have led, which involve new cancer therapies, the article highlighting the placement of a novel type of pacemaker by Dr. Pam Mason, the work done by Dr. Scott Heysell on the impact of undernutrition, and the entire focus on the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine this month. I am so proud of the innovation within our Department and the excitement of bringing these new therapies to our patients.

I encourage you to read about the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and learn more about their research, educational, and clinical excellence. I thank all of the Division members for their excellence and dedication.

With best wishes,

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