Anesthesiology faculty welcome Chan

ChanDr. Yieshan Melissa Chan has joined the Medical Center faculty as an assistant professor of anesthesiology and assistant residency program director of the Anesthesiology Residency Program.

After receiving a B.S. in biology summa cum laude from Baylor University, Waco, Texas, in 1998, she earned her medical doctorate at the Texas Tech Health Science Center, Lubbock, in 2003.

In addition, she completed courses in Managing Technical Professionals and Organizations and Transforming Leadership Strategy at the MIT Sloan School of Management in Cambridge, Mass.

After finishing residency, she worked in Arizona and Oklahoma as an attending anesthesiologist, and then most recently in Minot, N.D., where, in addition to practicing anesthesiology in a medical center, she was involved in teaching residents, medical students and nurse anesthetists at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences as well as the School of Nursing.

Chan is a board-certified anesthesiologist and an active member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists and has a strong interest in and passion for medical education.
