Dr. Ramsey Hachem is joining our team as our new Chief for the Division of Respiratory, Critical Care, and Occupational Pulmonary Medicine on April 15th.Dr. Hachem received his medical education and Internal Medicine residency training from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. He completed a Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellowship and was subsequently recruited to the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, in 2003 as an assistant professor and was promoted to Professor of Medicine in 2015.

Dr. Hachem’s clinical and research interests have focused on lung transplantation, and in 2013, he became the Medical Director of the Lung Transplant Program at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.  Under his leadership, the transplant program flourished as one of the most successful in the country based on their high volumes and superb post-transplant outcomes.

Dr. Hachem views clinical and translational research as tools to address critical questions that directly impact clinical medicine. His research has led to over 140 publications. The main focus of his research has been humoral immunity and developing a better understanding of pathways that lead to chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) and strategies to prevent and manage CLAD after transplantation.

The University of Utah Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine is very pleased to be able to recruit Dr. Hachem, who will become the 6th Division Chief for Respiratory, Critical Care, and Occupational Pulmonary Medicine.
