Congratulations to Dr. Jason Parham on celebrating 20 years at UMMC! Dr. Parham is Division Director of Infectious Diseases, Executive Vice Chair for the Department of Medicine, and leads UMMC’s Antimicrobial Stewardship Program, which was awarded Center of Excellence Status by the Infectious Diseases Society of America.

One of the consequences of the internet is that news travels fast. These days, we learn within seconds about mass shootings, wildfires spurring out of control, airplane crashes, or hurricanes waiting to make landfall.

If you are over 30 years old, you likely recall vividly what you were doing you when our country was hit with one of the most horrific tragedies we had ever seen.

Vikas Majithia, MD, MPH, Professor of Medicine and Division Director of Rheumatology, will be leaving UMMC next month. We appreciate his 20 years of service to UMMC. In light of his leaving, the following appointments have been made in the Department:
– Gailen Marshall to serve as interim Division Director of Rheumatology
– Jimmy Stewart appointed Vice Chair of Faculty Development for the Department of Medicine
– John Spurzem named Chair of the Department of Medicine Promotion and Tenure Committee

Lance Majors, MD is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Hospital Medicine. Here, he shares his path to medicine, his professional interests, and what he loves about UMMC.
