Dr. Wee is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School (part-time) and adjunct faculty in the Division of General Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC).

She is also the recipient of several regional and national awards, including the 2011 Midcareer Research and Mentorship Award from the Society of General Internal Medicine, the HMS Barger Award for Excellence in Mentoring, and a NIH K24 Mentorship award.
