Dr. Sultan is an accomplished clinician, researcher, and educator in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (GI) and currently serves as the Program Director of the GI Fellowship Program. She brings to this role a breadth of leadership experience, accomplishment in health disparities research, an established record of increasing learner diversity, and a passion and vision for DEI work. I'm excited she will be joining the Department's senior leadership team. Dr. Sultan will assume her responsibilities on May 1, 2021.
