With a passion for tropical medicine, Dr. Coyle has co-authored chapters and articles on many tropical diseases. She is recognized by her colleagues as an expert in this field, and has run one of the most active tropical medicine clinics in the United States since 2006. In 2007, she became a site director for GeoSentinel, the global surveillance network of the International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). She also functions in the Infectious Disease Society of America's (IDSA) and ASTM&H (American Society Tropical Medicine and Hygiene) panel on guidelines for Neurocysticercosis. In addition, she co-directs the annual ASTM&H since 2008, an annual course which provides clinically relevant education in the field of tropical medicine and Parasitology, in order to reduce global health disparities.

Dr. Coyle is a deeply committed educator. Since her faculty appointment at Einstein in 1995, she has served in many different roles in medical education and has been the recipient of almost every teaching award at Einstein. In 2007, she was appointed course director for the newly reorganized Parasitology and Global Medicine Course in the second-year medical student curriculum, the only free-standing Tropical Medicine Course at a U.S. medical school.

Dr. Coyle is a much-sought-after teacher and lectures frequently at other medical schools in New York City. As of 2010, she also runs the Parasitology section of the microbiology course at Columbia Medical School as an adjunct professor. In 2007, Dr. Coyle became the Assistant Dean for Faculty Development at The Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The Office of Faculty Development, a unit of the Office of Medical Education, tailors programs that meet the varied needs of Einstein faculty. She approached this responsibility with the same enthusiasm and vision she brings to all her projects and has received outstanding evaluations on the curriculum her office provides to its faculty members.
