Tisha Wang, MD is Co-Director and Co-Founder of the Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT) at UCLA. Born and raised in Texas, Dr. Wang came to California in 2002 for her internal medicine residency at UCLA and was recruited to stay on to complete a pulmonary and critical care fellowship. She joined the faculty at UCLA in 2008 and her many roles have included fellowship program director, director of the liver transplant intensive care unit, and clinical division chief.

Her clinical interests include pulmonary and critical care complications of liver disease, pulmonary embolism, and rare lung disease. Dr. Wang is the PI on multiple clinical studies studying pulmonary alveolar proteinosis and is the Clinical Director and Vice President of the PAP patient foundation. Based on an idea originally created by Dr. Richard Channick who is now her colleague at UCLA, Dr. Wang and her cardiology and interventional radiology colleagues started the multidisciplinary PE Response Team at UCLA in 2017 which has brought PE care to a new level. She is now working with all the University of California hospitals to create an outpatient protocol for the care of post-PE patients as part of the UCAPE (University of California Alliance on PE Care) initiative.

Outside of UCLA, Dr. Wang serves as the Vice Chair of the Education Committee for the American Thoracic Society and chairs the Nominating Committee for the California Thoracic Society. She is a staunch advocate for women in medicine, medical educators, and patients with rare lung disease.
