Leann L. Silhan, MD
Dr. Leann Silhan graduated from UT Southwestern Medical School in 2006 and completed her residency in internal medicine at University of Maryland Medical Center. She was chief resident in internal medicine from 2009-2010 and then completed her fellowship in pulmonary and critical care at University of Maryland and Shock Trauma Center, where she served as the chief fellow during her final year. She accepted a position on faculty at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where she worked as part of the interstitial lung disease team as a subspecialist, performed research in pulmonary fibrosis and telomerase, and was faculty and attending physician of the lung transplantation program and selection committee. From 2015-2017, she was the pulmonary and critical care division’s director of education. She moved to Dallas in 2017 to join the pulmonary and critical care faculty at UT Southwestern. Her self-pursued education in functional medicine, which began in 2016, led her to leave academic medicine to practice medicine with a more holistic approach. She enjoys seeing patients from all walks of life but has an interest in pulmonary, autoimmunity, and women’s health. When outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her husband and three young daughters, gardening, and being outdoors.
