PROVIDENCE – Dr. Angela M. Caliendo has been appointed chief of the division of general internal medicine at Rhode Island and Miriam hospitals, officials announced on Feb. 19.

In her new role, Caliendo will oversee all internal medicine services on the two campuses, including patient care and clinical research.

She also will serve as executive vice chair of the department of medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University. Both appointments are effective Feb. 1, 2013.

Caliendo previously served numerous roles at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, including medical director of Emory Medical Laboratories as well as attending physician in the division of infectious diseases.

Her research interests include antiretroviral resistance in HIV-positive women, and the development of molecular diagnostic tests for various infectious diseases.

“Dr. Caliendo’s broad medical background and extraordinary leadership talents make her an ideal choice to lead the division,” said Dr. Louis Rice, chief of the department of medicine at Rhode Island and The Miriam hospitals. “The division of general internal medicine cares for a large proportion of the patients admitted to the hospital.”

“I am very pleased to have a physician of Dr. Caliendo’s caliber join the department of medicine at the medical school,” said Dr. Edward J. Wing, dean of medicine and biological sciences at the Alpert Medical School. “Her rich and varied experiences in research, clinical care and academics make her a tremendous resource for students and the entire Alpert community.”
