As a consultation-liaison psychiatrist, I get to work with medically and surgically hospitalized patients who have mental health issues due to, or independent of, their reason for hospitalization. I feel passionate about being with people in this setting, hearing their illness narratives and helping them cope with being in the hospital and guiding them through the healing process. I believe the most important aspect of care I provide is listening carefully to what is going on with my patients so that I can best understand how to address their needs.
I enjoy the collegial environment at Ohio State and the immense support and number of opportunities for development and continued education offered. I’m excited to be in a stimulating environment where I get to teach and learn with residents, medical students and colleagues.
In my free time, I enjoy taking part in anything that has to do with food, including cooking, baking and eating out.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 11/21/2019, Dr. Chang has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
