Assistant Dean for Faculty Development
Professor of Clinical Medicine, Department of Medicine
Dr. Coyle's interest is mainly in tropical diseases. She runs a unique Tropical Medicine Clinic that meets once a week and sees about 200 patients a year with tropical diseases. Dr. Herbert Tanowitz co-directs the laboratory and sees patients in the clinic. The clinic sees patients with madura foot, cysticercosis, filariasis, echinococcus and intestinal parasites. It also see cases of malaria and babesia. There is a laboratory attached to the clinic and all clinical material is reviewed with the laboratory staff. The laboratory is an integral part of the experience. Most of the patients seen in the clinic are immigrants, although some do come in for travel related illness. The clinic would welcome students or residents.
Dr. Coyle also runs the second year medical student course Parasitology and Global Medicine. Much of the material in the course is drawn from the clinic experience. This is truly Dr. Coyle's passion: teaching the medical students at Einstein. There are many opportunities for clinical projects and she would be happy to mentor students or residents
