From the August ACP Hospitalist, by Jessica Berthold.
Chi-Cheng Huang, ACP Member.
Occupation: Chairperson, Department of Hospital Medicine, Lahey Clinic Medical Center, Burlington, Mass.
Current residence: Lincoln, Mass.
Hometown: College Station, Texas.
Family: Married with three daughters.
Medical school: Harvard Medical School.
Residency: Harvard Combined Internal Medicine/ Pediatrics Residency Program.
Specialty: Hospital medicine in internal medicine. I still moonlight sometimes in pediatrics at a walk-in clinic in East Boston.
Something I wish I'd learned in medical school: The interpersonal bedside management skills with patients and families that are required to be a caring physician. You might be the most intelligent physician in the world and not be able to get to “yes” to take care of a patient's needs, without these skills.
Most meaningful non-medical accomplishment: Being a husband and father, and then the nonprofit organization I founded, Kaya Children International, which helps assist Bolivian Street Children.
