Dr. Tyo is an Assistant Professor of both Internal and Emergency Medicine at the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences Systems. On staff for over a decade, she has been the Residency Program Director for the combined IM/EM training program for the last 9 years facilitating the education of resident physicians throughout the institution through work in the Emergency Department and Inpatient hospital wards. More recently, she has become the physician champion and medical director for the observation services platform for UI Health.
