The GW Medical Faculty Associates’ Department of Medicine has tapped Nadine El Asmar, MD, to serve as the interim Director of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism.

Dr. El Asmar has a substantial professional background in clinical endocrinology and education. She completed her internal medicine residency and endocrinology fellowship at University Hospitals Case Western Medical Center and then served on the faculty at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center for several years and was involved in graduate medical education. Dr. El Asmar joined the GW MFA in 2021, as the associate program director of the Endocrinology Fellowship and was promoted one year later to program director.

“I know that Dr. El Asmar will be a great leader within the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism. She is a highly-skilled clinician and has been a wonderful educator and advocate for the fellows and for endocrinology education, in general,” said William Borden, MD, interim chair of the GW Department of Medicine.

Dr. El Asmar will be replacing Diala El-Maouche, MD, MS, associate professor of Medicine, who has served as the Director of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism for the past several years. During her time in this role, she rebuilt the division by recruiting new faculty, optimizing the clinical services, and enhancing our educational activities.

“We are grateful to Dr. El-Maouche for her services and wish her the very best in her new endeavors,” said Borden.

Dr. El Asmar will begin to serve in the Interim Division Director role on Monday, May 20. A permanent Division Director will be appointed by the permanent Chair of Medicine, whose recruitment is underway.
