Faculty

At the heart of the Mount Sinai Morningside-West Emergency Department are faculty members who form a diverse and dynamic group with academic appointments at the Mt. Sinai Icahn School of Medicine. All are board-certified or board-prepared in emergency medicine or pediatric emergency medicine. The faculty actively participate in weekly didactic conferences, teach the core curriculum, serve as preceptors for residents, function as liaisons to other departments, participate in research, and serve as advisors for Mt. Sinai medical students interested in emergency medicine. Senior Mt. Sinai medical students rotate in our department and are taught by our faculty.


The residency director, associate residency director and assistant residency directors coordinate all academic activities of the department at both sites. They facilitate the roles of the faculty, work closely with the residents and are available to residents at all times to provide personal or professional support and guidance.
