She recently joined the faculty at The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education/CUNY School of Medicine as the course director for the new Organ Systems course.

A new career and an old challenge

After 20 years as a busy internist with a passion for medical student education, I was thrilled when Marti Grayson, the Dean for Medical Education at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine offered to send me to the Harvard Macy Course for Educators in the Health Professions. As soon as I arrived I felt like I had found my people. Although this has been said many times, the experience of being in the rotunda, with a nice cup of coffee listening to people from all over the world hash out the same educational problems I faced at my job, was life changing. I quickly made great friends and just as quickly realized how much I didn’t know about medical education.
