The Department of Medicine bids farewell, with deepest gratitude, to Donna Morrison, outgoing Firm Leader of Medical Service II of the Einstein/Montefiore Internal Medicine Residency Program. Dr. Morrison has also served as the clinic director for the Adult Medicine Practice (AMP) in the DTC Building of the Moses campus.
Bettina Fries will be taking over as Firm Leader for Firm II. Dr. Fries is a Medical Service II graduate of the Einstein/Montefiore Internal Medicine Residency Program and is currently Associate Professor of Medicine and Microbiology & Immunology. Since last year, she has been Director of the Medical Science Pathway and has been participating in the leadership meetings and discussions with the current Firm Leadership.
"Dr. Morrison is a superb educator, physician, and administrator: unflappable, analytical, yet warm and personable. She is a model academic leader," said Victor L. Schuster, MD, Chief of the Department of Medicine. "Dr. Fries will bring her scientific rigor and strong skills as a physician to the task, and we look forward to her leadership of Firm II."
Lauren Shapiro graduated last Wednesday as a Chief Resident and will start July 1st as Assistant Firm Leader of Medical Service III.
Dr. Nicole Sirotin will start July 1st as Assistant Director to Dr. Hillary Kunins in the Primary Care & Social Internal Medicine Program.
