Medical Reserve Corps Appreciation: Physician responder during Hurricane Sandy
Advanced training ACLS, Advanced Cardiac Life Support
I have a full-time position and split my time as a Health Screening Unit physician and faculty teaching pre-clinical courses. I do teach post-graduates on a variety of medical topics.
In NYUCD Health Screening Unit, I evaluate faculty and staff for annual health examinations. I also perform urgent/emergent consultations on faculty, staff and students as requested.
As a former Emergency Department Physician, I have maintained my interest in emergency preparedness. As a result, I am part of the College's Panel for Catastrophe Preparedness as the Medical Director. I direct and teach the catastrophe elective to the D3 and D4 students. I now lecture with Drs. David Glotzer, Miriam Robbins and Victoria Raveis in the Basic Defense Life Support Course.
I am a physician responder for the Medical Reserve Corps which was created by the Department Of Health and Mental Hygiene.
