Mukarram Amine, DO
Medical School: 
Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine
Residency: Loyola Medicine MacNeal Hospital 

Career plan:  Astronaut, or Gastroenterologist

Hi everyone! My name is Mukarram. I grew up in the southwest suburbs of Chicago, and most of my immediate and extended family remain here. I did my undergrad at the Illinois Institute of Technology and then medical school at the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic medicine. I started internal medicine residency in Bayonne, NJ, but when offered the opportunity to come home, I seized it. I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated my time as a resident, and now I'm excited to stay on as chief here at MacNeal. I look forward to working with the faculty and residents in making this year as productive, effective, educational, and generally awesome as possible. In my free time though, I enjoy watching and playing basketball, running, traveling with my wife, and making and drinking coffee.

Lucas Chan, MD
Medical School
: Tulane School of Medicine
Residency Loyola University Medical Center
Career Plan Cardiology

Being a native of Los Angeles, I often ask myself why I moved to the tundra of Chicago. Having just completed my residency at Loyola, I'm very excited to continue building the relationship between Loyola and MacNeal as a chief. I developed a passion for leadership and fostering good team dynamics in residency and appreciate the opportunity to teach leadership strategies at MacNeal.



Elizabeth Stranges, MD
Medical School
: Loyola Stritch School of Medicine
Residency: Loyola University Medical Center
Career Plan: Medical Education

Hi all! My name is Elizabeth and I'm so happy to be at MacNeal as chief resident this year. I grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland, but I'm more of a Chicagoan than a Marylander at this point. I moved here after graduating from college and worked for a few years before deciding to go to medical school. I love both inpatient and outpatient medicine and I'm passionate about health equity. What makes me happiest, though, is working with students and residents. Similarly, outside of work, I love spending time with family and friends, getting to know new people, and learn new things.
