Attending Pathologists at NYU Winthrop Hospital.
“The Pathology Training Program at NYU Winthrop Hospital strives for an optimal learning experience through teaching and supervision, with residents exposed to a wide range of unusual and challenging cases.”
Message from the Chair
The 2019-2020 academic year marked many firsts for NYU Winthrop Hospital. A full asset merger with NYU Langone Health in August 2019, and the resulting partnership, has strengthened our existing mission to serve our community with high-quality, safe medicine. NYU Long Island School of Medicine, a new three-year MD program focused on training primary care physicians, also opened in August 2019.
The Department of Pathology at NYU Long Island School of Medicine has played an integral part in these milestone events through teaching, research, and clinical practice. As a new chair, my aim is to infuse the department with excitement and support as we continue on this journey. As a passionate supporter of education, I value our laboratory as they process 50,000 surgical specimens, and 1 million clinical laboratory tests. This unique experience provides a strong foundation for pathology residents and students to learn and grow along with our dedicated group of 15 faculty members. Also, our autopsy service with close to 100 cases annually supports our mission through integrated anatomy teaching, quality assurance hospital measures, and pathology resident instruction.
In addition to a rigorous curriculum, NYU Winthrop offers convenient access to New York City with the Long Island Railroad’s Mineola station located directly adjacent to the hospital. This provides the opportunity to enjoy a myriad of cultural, social, and professional activities in Manhattan while Mineola and nearby towns offer parks, athletic facilities, and the Roosevelt Field Mall®, one of the largest retail centers on Long Island.
Alongside learning and leisure activities, our expert team offers the crucial support and mentorship needed for success. When I joined the Department of Pathology at NYU Winthrop Hospital in 2018, I became a member of a close-knit family. Now, as Chair, I look forward to welcoming you to learn and grow with us.
