Tseng and Yarmus Named Vice Chairs

We are proud to announce our newest vice chairs in the Department of Medicine. Dr. Eva Tseng will be our Assistant Vice Chair for Women’s Careers in Academic Medicine, and Dr. Lonny Yarmus will serve as our Vice Chair for Clinical Business Development & Strategy.

Dr. Eva Tseng is an assistant professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine. She earned her medical degree and a master’s in public health from Tufts University before moving to Philadelphia to complete a residency in internal medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. She came to Hopkins to complete a general internal medicine research fellowship and joined the faculty in GIM in 2017. Since then, she has completed the AAMC Early Career Women Faculty Leadership Development Seminar and is currently enrolled in the American Diabetes Association Women’s Interprofessional Network Longitudinal Course. She is a member of the SOM Women’s Professional Advancement Council and helped create and chairs the Early Career Workgroup of the DOM’s Task Force on Women’s Careers in Academic Medicine.

Dr. Tseng has the vision and drive necessary to create an environment for women faculty to thrive. In her new role as Assistant Vice Chair for Women’s Careers in Academic Medicine, she will set the tone for DOM initiatives related to the advancement of women faculty and trainees. She will chair the Women’s Task Force and lead our strategic efforts related to actively promoting DOM women in partnership with the School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University and the Johns Hopkins Health System. Dr. Tseng aims to expose all women faculty to strong mentorship—in part inspired by her own success in finding strong women mentors within the Division of General Internal Medicine.

Dr. Lonny Yarmus is a professor of medicine and oncology in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. He is director of the Interventional Pulmonology section and chief medical officer of the Four Seasons Resorts and Johns Hopkins International Lead with Care program. Dr. Yarmus completed his internal medicine residency and pulmonary and critical care fellowship at Tufts University-Maine Medical Center. He then completed his interventional pulmonary training in 2010 at Hopkins followed by his master’s in business administration in healthcare administration and entrepreneurship from the Carey Business School. Until 2023, he spent eight years serving as the clinical director of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.

In his new role as Vice Chair for Clinical Business Development & Strategy, Dr. Yarmus will oversee initiatives for expansion, innovation and business development on behalf of the DOM. He will develop initiatives and execute strategies to support and grow the department’s clinical footprint, entrepreneurial endeavors and departmental finance growth models regionally, national and internationally. We are grateful for his commitment to the DOM, and confident his entrepreneurship, proven leadership and experience managing complex financial operations in a highly matrixed environment will serve him well in his vice chair role.

Please join us in congratulating Drs. Tseng and Yarmus and welcoming them to their new roles.
