Hi everyone! My name is Tim Layng. I am originally from Pennsylvania and received my undergraduate degree from a small college in Bethlehem called Moravian, where I was also on the track and field team. I headed down to VCOM in Blacksburg for medical school, and Virginia has held on to me ever since. I recently completed my emergency medicine residency at VCU in Richmond and served as one of the chief residents. I developed an interest in Clinical Informatics while at VCU and discovered that UVA had a Fellowship in CI. After interviewing, I had a strong sense that informatics was a key part of advancing the health system here so I decided to stay in Virginia and join the UVA team – I’m very excited to be here!
