After completing her residency, Dr. Weber was asked to remain at Rush for an additional year to assume the prestigious position of Chief Resident of Internal Medicine. She then completed a fellowship in sports medicine at the University of California Medical Center in San Diego. In addition to holding a Master of Science degree in Exercise Physiology and being the recipient of numerous awards for excellence in patient care and teaching, Dr. Weber has published many articles, book chapters and is an active researcher. A former college athlete, she has been involved in athletics as a team physician, an exercise physiologist, and as an avid athlete. In 2006, Dr. Weber was recognized by Girls in the Game as their Health Champion.

Dr. Weber's reputation as a leading sports medicine physician is enhanced by her remarkable activity in the treatment of high level professional athletes. She currently serves as head team physician for the DePaul Blue Demons and as the sports medicine physician consultant for the Hubbard Street Dance Company and the River North Dance Company.
