New endowed chair continues tradition of excellence
A Creighton couple’s gift will continue their transformative legacy and bring a new leader to one of the School of Medicine’s most prestigious departments.
Professors emeriti Shashi and Subhash Bhatia, both MD, have established the Shashi and Subhash Bhatia, Bhatia Family Endowed Chair in the Department of Psychiatry in the School of Medicine.
Creighton’s 46th endowed chair will help guide the continued growth and innovation of a department in which the Bhatias have mentored hundreds of medical students, residents and fellows in the mission of improving the human condition.
On March 15, Rajesh Tampi, MD, will be installed as the inaugural Bhatia Family Endowed Chair. Tampi comes to Creighton from the Cleveland Clinic, where he served as the chief of geriatric psychiatry and the chair of psychiatry at Cleveland Clinic Akron General.
