School of Medicine
(210) 743-6014

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. In 2013, I moved from outpatient clinic back to inpatient medicine.

My interest in teamwork and collegiality has extended into my interests in medical education research, 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. My current educational/ research interests are (1) medicine consult/co-management (2) transitions of care with internal medicine as a "triagist" and patient flow specialist. I have been the lead in past and ongoing multi-site academic projects including state and national educational grants, curriculum creation and publications.
