M. Christine Stock
Christine is an exceptional clinician who has served as a respected and effective leader in both hospital and academic settings. Currently a tenured professor of anesthesiology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, she also spent 15 years as the Anesthesiology Chair at Northwestern University where she helped secure millions in funding and oversaw various aspects of that clinical enterprise. In addition to being responsible for clinical care, education, faculty development, and research within her own department, she was instrumental in improving hospital operations, ensuring a smooth transition as Northwestern’s faculty practice plan was integrated with the hospital’s parent corporation to form a health system. Prior to that, Chris spent 15 years at Emory University’s School of Medicine, first as assistant professor of anesthesiology and internal medicine and later as a tenured associate professor of anesthesiology. Her involvement in medicine at a national scale is unique and she is adept at cultivating positive, open, team-based cultures in multidisciplinary environments. She is passionate about driving success in new care delivery areas in the face of changing healthcare policy. Chris earned her MD and her BS in Medicine from Northwestern and completed the University’s anesthesiology residency program and critical care medicine fellowship program.
