Muir, MD, chief, division of Gastroenterology. “She quickly developed an outstanding reputation as a master clinician in hepatology. She has a passion for education, and she is a recent winner of the Killenberg Teaching Award given annually by the GI fellows. Dr. King impressed our search committee with her expertise in transplantation, her dedication to high quality care, her vision for the future of the program, and her strong commitment to the success of the program.”
