Lucas Chan, MD, TY/IM Chief

Medical School: Tulane School of Medicine
Residency: Internal Medicine, 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.


Mukarram Amine, DO, IM/TY Chief
Medical School: Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine
Residency: Internal Medicine, 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.


Elizabeth Stranges, MD, IM/TY Chief
Medical School
: Stritch School of Medicine
Residency: Internal Medicine, Loyola University Medical Center
Career Plan: Medical Education!


Hi everyone! I'm excited to be joining MacNeal as a Chief Resident. I went to Stritch School of Medicine, just down the street, and stayed at Loyola to complete residency. I'm originally from just outside of Washington, DC, but Chicago has been my home for the past 20 years. I'm passionate about health equity and am planning to work in Chicago as an internist after this year. In my downtime, I love to bike, read and spend time with friends.
