We are pleased to share the appointment of Michael Berman, MD, MS, FACOG, as Associate Dean for Quality and Patient Safety in Graduate Medical Education. This newly created position recognizes the important role that our residents and fellows play in the care of patients throughout the Mount Sinai Health System. 


In this role, Dr. Berman will lead efforts at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) and the Health System to meet the goals of the Clinical Learning Environment Review Program developed by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education.  Key elements of the program include the engagement and education of residents, fellows, and faculty in the domains of quality and patient safety.

Currently, Dr. Berman serves as an ISMMS Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science, Associate Chairman for Quality and Patient Safety, and Medical Director of Labor and Delivery. In addition, he is the Faculty Chair of the Mount Sinai Beth Israel (MSBI) Resident and Fellow Quality Improvement Committee. Through these varied roles within the Health System, Dr. Berman has exhibited a commitment to quality of care, patient safety, and education.


Dr. Berman joined the MSBI attending staff in 2012, implementing the hospital’s first full-time laborist program, which provided a structured, collaborative, patient-centric approach to improving quality, safety, and patient experience on the labor floor.  Previously, Dr. Berman was a Clinical Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at Yale School of Medicine, serving for 36 years on the voluntary faculty and on the attending staff of Yale New Haven Hospital, and receiving the C. Lee Buxton Teaching Award from his department.


Dr. Berman earned his MD at New York Medical College and completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale New Haven Hospital.  In 2014, he received a MS in Biomedical Informatics from the Oregon Health and Science University with a major focus on personal health records and disparities in access to health care information technologies.
