NYMC Appoints Jerry L. Nadler, M.D., FACP, FAHA, FACE, Dean of the School of Medicine

After an extensive international search, New York Medical College (NYMC) has appointed Jerry L. Nadler, M.D., FACP, FAHA, FACE, dean of the School of Medicine. An internationally-recognized expert in the field of pathogenesis of diabetes, Dr. Nadler brings to NYMC his leadership and dedication to research, innovation and education. He previously served as the Harry H. Mansbach Endowed Chair in Internal Medicine and vice dean of research at Eastern Virginia Medical School, where he directed the Strelitz Diabetes Center. He also served as a member of a Special Advisory Committee on Type 1 Diabetes with the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Nadler will assume his new position and join the NYMC community in March 2019.



Fine tuning the clinical skills needed to not only look, but to see, will be the focus of a special presentation hosted by the Health Sciences Library on Monday, November 5, at 5:00 p.m., in Nevins Auditorium.  Carolyn Halpin-Healy, M.A. , executive director of Arts & Minds and an educator from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will present "The Art of Observation," a discussion and reflection on art that can improve one's skills in examination, description, understanding, communication, empathy and ultimately care.
