Anne Marie Lennon, associate professor in GI, was recently named clinical director of the Division of Gastroenterology where she will oversee clinical practices at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Green Spring Station.
After receiving her medical degree from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, and a Ph.D. from the University College Dublin, Ann Marie completed her residency training in internal medicine at the Mater Hospital in Dublin and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. She finished a fellowship in Gastroenterology in the United Kingdom, and joined the two-year Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship, becoming full-time faculty upon completion of her fellowship in 2010.
Anne Marie spearheaded the establishment of the first-ever multidisciplinary pancreatic cyst clinic in North America. This multidisciplinary approach for pancreatic cysts has become the standard of care in multiple centers across the United States.
This announcement comes following the news that Linda Lee, professor in GI, will be departing the division and her role as clinical director to become the chief medical officer at Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare. Linda will oversee over 400 physicians in her new role beginning September 1, 2017.
