Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine

IUH University Hospital
550 University Boulevard

Indianapolis , IN 46202


Born and raised in New York, Dr. Hur earned her medical degree from the State University of New York Upstate Medical University.  She completed her training in Internal Medicine at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island where she began her career in academic hospital medicine, further honed at Weill Cornell Medical Center in NYC, before relocating to Indy in 2006.  Starting as an academic hospitalist at University then Wishard Hospitals, she now cares for complex medical patients prior to undergoing surgery at IUH University Hospital.  Dr. Hur is a local authority on perioperative medicine and teaches resident and colleagues on the subject. Her clinical research interests include preoperative medical assessments and more recently, risk assessment for the geriatric surgical population.

As a Key Clinical Educator for the Department of Medicine, representing the campus academic hospitalists, Dr. Hur facilitates educational initiatives for the Department of Medicine in both undergraduate and graduate medical education.  Her educational research interests are in the application of technology and multimedia learning for medical education.  Currently, Dr. Hur is also serving as the Interim Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residency. Based largely on her own training experiences, Dr. Hur passionately believes that balancing academic rigor with wellness is critical for an optimal training environment to support our residents as they acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to provide improved, equitable health for their patients, contributions to medical research, evidence-based education for their peers and communities, and of course, a lifetime of fulfillment for themselves.

Dr. Hur is married to her medical school sweetheart, Dr. John Hur, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in adult arthroplasty.  When she isn’t juggling her family’s busy schedule, she enjoys golf, alpine skiing, the Indy food scene, thought provoking podcasts, and joking around with her husband and their three children.
