Hello there!!  My name is Jonna and I'm currently developing our Clinical Librarian Program here at the Galter Library.   What is a clinical librarian, you ask?   My work is primarily done in the units by participating in clinical meetings, attending rounds, and helping to assist the attendings, residents, and students in answering clinical questions .  You may see me tagging along with one of the Medicine teams on Galter 13. I'm also a liaison to the groups you see listed below.  If you are a member of the department or divisions on this list, feel free to give me a ring or send me an email should you need any assistance.
