Dr. Linh Vi

Colleagues,

It is with a heavy heart that I share one of our faculty members, Dr. Lihn Vi, passed away on December 17, 2021.

After graduating from the University of Hanoi School of Medicine in Hanoi, Vietnam in 1983, Vi was a Staff Pathologist and Pathology Instructor at the National Cancer Center in Hanoi for two years. His fellowship in Surgical Pathology brought him to Besancon, France, where he then received a Doctorate of Medicine from Universite de Franche-Comte in 1995. During his time in France, Vi was a Per Diem Pathology Assistant at the Montbeliard General Hospital, as well as a Per Diem Assistant Technician at the University Hospitals of Franche-Comte. His residency training was at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, then he moved on to Cheboygan, MI to work at Cheboygan Memorial Hospital. Before he joined IU, Dr. Vi worked for six years at Lakeland Regional Medical Center.

Dr. Vi joined the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in 2018 as an Associate Professor.  During his time in the department, Dr. Vi served the Lafayette community as a staff pathologist at IU Health Arnett Hospital.  He also served as the Laboratory Medical Director for IU Health White Memorial Hospital and IU Health Frankfort Hospital. In addition to pathology, Dr. Vi had a passion for classical guitar and Vietnamese cooking.  He was self-taught in both areas, treasured gifts he shared with his wife Robin and their children.  Dr. Vi spent his final months surrounded by family, friends, and love.
