Shikha Jain, MD, FACP. Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Hematology and Oncology, Director of Communication Strategies in Medicine of the University of Illinois Chicago; Associate Director of Oncology Communication & Digital Innovation of the University of Illinois Cancer Center: Leadership requires the ability to identify the voices missing in the conversation and bring them into the discussion. I lead by listening first, identifying gaps, and finding people with expertise and diverse backgrounds and experiences to lead and fill in those gaps. The best leaders are those who lead from where they stand and create a strong team and infrastructure around them to strengthen the organization.
About Shikha Jain, MD FACP
I am a practicing, board-certified hematology/oncology physician in Chicago. I speak on topics ranging from the impact of social media on healthcare, how physicians can utilize social media, how to write Op-eds in the medical world, gender equity and barriers to career advancement, and topics in GI oncology and immunotherapy. My goal is to explain complicated topics in simple terms. I also enjoy writing and you can find some of my writing on this site. I am a mother to three amazing kids and married to a gastroenterologist. I look forward to connecting with you.
