Dr. Glen Lehman, a native of Indiana, graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine in 1968. He completed his internal medicine residency and Gastroenterology fellowship at IU School of Medicine. Afterward, he joined the faculty of the school in 1974 and became one of the founders of the Division, establishing himself as a worldwide authority in advanced endoscopy.
Dr. Lehman's clinical and research expertise brought numerous best practices and techniques to the discipline of ERCP. Thanks to his efforts and the mentorship he provided, IU became the most prominent and prolific center for advanced endoscopy in North America over the course of three subsequent decades.
For over 30 years, Dr. Lehman heavily involved himself in training and teaching fellows, including those from more than 15 countries worldwide. His academic legacy includes numerous high-profile publications, book chapters, and hundreds of invited talks and presentations in the U.S. and internationally. He has received several distinguished awards, notably the Rudolf Schindler Award, the most prestigious awards presented by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
Dr. Lehman is married to his wife Lana, and they have two daughters, Christen and Andrea. In 2007, the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at IU established the Glen A. Lehman Professorship of Gastroenterology. Dr. Stuart Sherman, a mentee of Dr. Lehman who has also gained wide international recognition in the field of endoscopy, became the first recipient of this professorship.
