Specialty leadership goes beyond the clinical excellence and innovation outlined in this report. In 2021-2022, many of our faculty served as principal investigators on NIH-funded research; editors of top academic journals; lead investigators of pivotal clinical trials; leaders of consensus statements and scientific sessions; and authors of over 500 podium research presentations and peer-reviewed manuscripts. Here are some of our highest-impact citations from 2021-2022.
