My name is Emily Wang and I am a clinical associate professor, board certified in Internal Medicine in 2003 and re-certified in 2013. I began my career at the University of Texas Health San Antonio (UTHSA) in the Division of General Medicine, Department of Medicine in July 2008 after five years in private practice as a hospitalist. My clinical experience in private practice, interacting with many physicians in different specialties and a variety of health care team members, led me to my interest in Medicine Consultation and perioperative medicine. In 2010, I became the Director of Inpatient Medicine Consultation and Pre-operative Clinic at the South Texas Veterans Health Care System. I am one of the Co-Directors of the Medicine Consult/Co-management Resident rotation starting in 2012. I also actively participate in national societies including Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) and the American College of Physicians (ACP).

My interest in teamwork and collegiality has extended into my teaching, initially starting in Internal Medicine Resident Continuity Clinic and a subsequent leadership role in instituting the Patient Aligned Care Team, the Veterans Health Administration?s Patient Centered Medical Home in the resident clinic. I also serve as Co-Director for the Medicine Consult Resident Rotation which is a required rotation for senior internal medicine residents. I am also involved in undergraduate medical education as a team-based learning facilitator in the new UTHSA curriculum. My current educational/ research interests are (1) medicine consult/co-management (2) transitions of care with internal medicine as a triage and patient flow specialist. We currently are awarded a AAIM 2017-2018 grant for creation of a resident learning module in the area.
