Born at Mount Sinai, I can safely say that my roots are here at this hospital. After eight years at Yale University, where I completed my undergraduate and medical education, I returned to Mount Sinai for my Internal Medicine residency training. Now I serve as one of the Mount Sinai Visiting Doctors, a group dedicated to caring for New York's home bound population through home based primary care.
As Co-Director of the Department of Medicine's Advancing Idealism in Medicine Initiative, I help oversee a curriculum dedicated to the promotion of humanism and idealism in medicine. This curriculum includes several monthly resident luncheons and several invited lectureships that create a venue through which our trainees and faculty are exposed to role models of idealism in medical care. I also serve as Associate Director of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine's Global Health Center at the Arnhold Global Health Institute of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, which is dedicated to improving the health of under served communities worldwide through training and education of future leaders in Global Health practice and research. In this role I have worked and mentored trainees in assessing the health needs of disadvantaged populations in rural Brazil and Ethiopia, in establishing health education programs in Native American communities in North Dakota and providing service to immigrant populations along the U.S. - Mexico border. I also helped spearhead and coordinate several service based missions in response to the 2010 Haiti Earthquake. My primary research interest is in resident physician and well-being and presently I am assist and advise the internal medicine residency training program in efforts to promote resident wellness.
