Dr. Yin is currently an Assistant Professor in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology in the Department of Internal Medicine at The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston. Dr. Yin earned her MD degree in 1994 from the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine located in Shanghai, China. She then did Residence training at Xiamen Zhongshan Hospital, Fujian, China; and then did Postdoctoral Fellow training at UTMB, Galveston. She has served as co-investigator in several NIH grants for research in functional gastrointestinal disorders. Her research works have been selected as Young Investigate Award for several times at both American and International Meetings from 2001 to 2006. She authored and co-authored over 30 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters.
Dr. Yin's research focuses on investigating the therapeutic treatment of gastrointestinal electrical stimulation on gastrointestinal motility disorders, diabetes and eating disorders in both humans and animals. In addition, research activities also focus on understanding the mechanisms of effects of electrical stimulation on gastrointestinal physiology.

The department of internal medicine is developing evidence based clinical protocols which will be available in EPIC (as order sets) for use when admitting patients with these diagnoses. Their AIM is to standardize care and decrease length of stay and readmission rates.Currently available protocols are:
- CAP - Community Acquired Pneumonia Orderset
- Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Diabetic Ketoacidosis Adult, ICU
- General Medicine Admission
- Immunodeficiency Flow Panel
- MICU/CCU Admission Order Set
- Oral Analgesic Medicaitons
- Parenteral Opioids
- Sepsis, Adult ICU
All protocols can be found in the EPIC order set section.
The department of Internal Medicine has a large role in the Meaningful Use Initiative. Our participation is key for the success of the initiative. Please visit the meaningful use website for important communication and updates from the Meaningful Use Initiative.
