Amisha Wallia MD, MS

Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) and Preventive Medicine (Epidemiology), Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois

Dr. Wallia is an endocrinologist and clinical instructor at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and also holds a secondary appointment at the Center for Health Care Studies, Institute of Public Health and Medicine. She completed her medical training at Georgetown University School of Medicine and completed her internal medicine and endocrinology training at Northwestern University.  She completed a Masters of Clinical Investigation during her training and completed an additional post-doctoral year examining the effects of hyperglycemia on post-transplant outcomes. Her current research includes a randomized controlled trial evaluating the effects of intensive and moderate glycemic control on outcomes following liver transplantation. In addition she has more recently been studying the use of engineering and safety methods to improve identification and treatment of hyperglycemia in the post-transplant population. Dr. Wallia has also been integral in efforts at her institution to improve diabetes transitions of care and decrease recurrent admissions for patients with diabetic ketoacidosis, and is involved in medication safety and quality improvement initiatives within Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Long terms she hopes to build novel integrated diabetes care management programs for those patients who are at highest risk for poor outcomes due to co-morbid conditions (such as post-transplant or those with recurrent diabetic ketoacidosis).
